Review - It's a Dunder-Bull Wide


It’s a Dunder-Bull Wife by Karen Cantwell. Publisher: Karen Cantwell, December 2011

Dunder-Bull – the perfect little town bordering Barbara Marr’s not-so-polished Rustic Woods. Everything in Dunder-Bull is five-star rated, including the wives. As Barb puts it, “Dunder-Bull Wives make Stepford Wives look like couch potatoes.” Succumbing to the need to “measure-up,” Barb decides to prepare a grand and luscious Christmas feast for a party of twenty. The problem? Barb can’t cook her way out of a turkey-roaster bag. In usual Barbara Marr fashion, chaos ensues. Will she survive? Will her family fall victim to salmonella food poisoning? Will Martha Stewart ridicule her publicly?  A Barbara Marr Holiday short story, sure to tickle your funny bone and touch your heart at the same time.

It’s Christmas and Barbara being Barbara gets in over her head with the preparation for large holiday party. You can’t help but laugh at the antics that is Barbara as she scrambles to have the perfect Christmas for her family and friends. This was a fun and amusing read that will leave you with the holiday spirit and a smile.
