Super Mom Saves the World by Melanie Lynne Hauser

Title: Super Mom Saves The World

Author: Melanie Lynne Hauser

Genre: Fantasy

Summary: Super Mom has a new villain to face as she saves Astro Park again.

The Take-Away: As an unplanned sequel, requested by her publisher, Hauser does an excellent job of developing her characters. Super Mom, aka Birdie Lee, is getting remarried while her ex-husband is divorcing his second wife -- the one he left her for. Oh yeah, something is suspicious with the new baseball diamond for the Little Leaguers. Do they really need a domed field, while the pep bands' uniforms are practically rotting around them? (That's my speculation.)

My favorite scene takes place at Birdie's ex-husband's -- Dan -- house. Dan has purchased, through a charity auction, a cleaning from Super Mom for Birdie. Since Birdie is Super Mom, she convinces him that she, Birdie, doesn't want the prize and he should accept it for himself. Then she, as Super Mom, can snoop through his house. While snooping and questioning Dan, Birdie confronts her conflicted feelings. Should she get back together with the father of her children? Should she marry Carl, her nerdy admirer? Not only is the house cleaned when she is done, Birdie uncovers what she came for.

Recommendation: Check out Confessions of Super Mom, the first title, then grab this one.
