The Happy Housewife by Kate Cooch

A former Coast Guard helicopter pilot turned housewife, a murder, an explosion, and two groups named ALF and ELF greet the reader of A HAPPY HOUSEWIFE by Kate Cooch.

Sam Sherman was now a stay-at-home mom who was great at helping others.   Sam became involved with Helen since she needed help after she had hip surgery.  The involvement with Helen seemed innocent, but it turns out that Helen had some friends that were quite deadly.

The book centers around Sam and Helen with Sam silently being taken advantage of by Helen.  A lot of information concerning two terrorist groups, which I have never heard of, was revealed.  Sam, the happy housewife, turned out to be a great detective and helped solve the mystery of an explosion that had killed one teenager and caused burns on another and that also helped capture active members of the ALF and ELF groups.

The book was ok and not very long....the last 20 pages were the best. The writing was good, and the author did get you involved in the story. The author created a great ending, but I am going to give it a 3/5 simply because it took a while to get me interested.


  1. The author provided me this book.

  2. I'm so into mystery/thrillers right now...this one sounds interesting. I'll check it out at Amazon. Thanks for the review.

  3. Poor Sam. Sounds like the real plot isn't the who dunnit but the conniving Helen.
