The story follows Livi, a spirited, outspoken PR executive, pivoting at thirty to full-time wife and mom. That goes better than imagined, that is, until she gets entangled in a relationship with another mom.

But no coming-out party.

No new set of indie friends.

Livi’s ability to live transparently 
in this complex web begins to loosen, though, as her girlfriend resists truth, dragging Livi into a world of deceit and subterfuge.

The story — set in an affluent Southern California neighborhood and a local hangout bar on the Mississippi Gulf Coast — is anything but ordinary. There’s a talking, know-it-all cat; a large, menacing cockroach; and a host of colorful characters, stirring it up as Livi wrestles with timeless questions of intimacy, friendship, and the yearning for meaningful relationships.
