Let’s see…this is the part where I convince you that you need this book. This book will massage your feet. This book will bring you a fuzzy blanket at the end of a long day of parenting your tiny little insanazoids. I promise to make you snort laugh at least once. After reading this book, you’ll rock jazz hands, be able to sing on-key, and never, ever have to fold laundry again. Okay, they told me I’m actually supposed to tell you a little about the book. Um, right. Look. Here’s the thing. Too many of us women are frazzled and lonely, isolated in our minivans while schlepping bags, strollers, and munchkins to and fro across town. It doesn’t have to be this way. In this guide to “momlationships,” I use a dating analogy to take us “around the bases” to our home-run friendships, the ones that last a lifetime, not just a soccer season. This is our journey to each other, to finding our people and being other people’s people, learning how to bless each other and not destroy each other. It’s sometimes scary. And always awkward. Let’s have some fun.

- Review by Sharee
The book touches on areas from being the new mom in town to dealing with painful mom breakups. She even tosses in a section about Bromances! All the while, she keeps a Christian perspective. Anyone who has ever thought Christian books are boring has never read Ms. Melanie Dale.
Women are Scary lays a truthful foundation while giving women the push needed to step out and make some new connections. It is a book that will make you smile, laugh and definitely want to pass a copy along because it is just too good to keep to yourself. Women are Scary gets a five out of five stars for sure!
