Description
Amanda's husband has just traded her in for an affair with a teenybopper. Brooke is a trophy wife collecting dust. And Candace (Don't call me Candy) has had too many husbands and too little love. What do these three unlikely accomplices have in common besides a Little League team called the Mudhens? A plot to reclaim a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t. And they're going to do it with a mop and a bucket. Maid for You starts as a way for Amanda to make enough money to keep the roof over her kids' heads after her husband splits for his midlife crisis. But when Candace and Brooke join her, it becomes much more. Donning disguises, they enter the homes of those who once spurned them and discover more than just clutter in the closets of their neighbors' otherwise tidy lives. But when Amanda takes on the job of cleaning the home of the town's most eligible hunk, someone decides to do her dirty. Now Amanda, Brooke, and Candace are on a mission to prove that being single in suburbia isn't a crime-even if it does lead to some irresistible temptations....
