In Vista Heights, the women of the neighborhood have started to look like their homes, varying shades of beige. Lost in this world of suburbia, Marissa Lyons learns her high school nemesis has bought the house right across the street from her. Afraid that her arch enemy, Beatrice Munson, will arrive with Marissa's high school crush as her husband and cause Marissa to relieve the insecurity of high school in her her forties, she decides to face the music and head to Beatrice's house with warm cupcakes. But what Marissa finds is something she never expected. How will Marissa and the rest of the women of San Martino deal with someone like Beatrice Munson, whose defining moment in her life was to get a boob job or go on a trip to Egypt. This story is about friendship, love, learning to look at things differently, and great parties. Step into the world of Vista Heights where you might not only recognize the women, you might be one of them.
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
I absolutely loved this book, which is weird for me. It's not one of my favorite genres to read but the way Beatrice Munson was written and the characters made me fall in love with the book. My favorite character by far was Jeffrey. I love how he can switch from drag queen to more manly and still be believable. At first, I thought Beatrice's personality was going to annoy me but it didn't. Marissa wasa little too whiny in some parts of the book for my taste, but all together I think the author wrote an amazing book. It definitely left me wanting to know more about the characters and what happens next.
I give Beatrice Munson 5/5.
