I curled up with “Hockey Mom” on a rare free Saturday afternoon once my own kids were done with playoffs. From the opening scene where the main character considers jumping to her death to avoid the head of the fundraising committee, to the very final pages where the mystery is finally solved, I was hooked. I saw myself and my hockey mom friends in the book, emerging in all of the typical characters encountered at the rink (hint, I’m often the one with the clipboard), evident in the everyday lives being described. The dysfunctional family scenes are unique and I often found myself laughing out loud, and comparing some of the ridiculous situations I have found myself in to those in the book. I bet you’ll find yourself and your friends, in this book, too.
Hockey Mom is a book that most any hockey mom could relate to. For that reason alone I think it’s worthwhile to read. It will bring a smile to your face. On top of that, though, the book is a genuine page-turning mystery. While I knew there was going to be a twist at the end, I could not for the life of me figure out what it would be. The creativity demonstrated in developing the plot layered with the sarcastic humour and quirky main character made this an enjoyable read for a hockey mom worn out after a long hockey season. Hockey Moms and non-hockey moms alike will enjoy this easy yet intelligent read.
