Praise for The Best Laid Plans

“Schnurnberger goes solo for a middle-age crazy tale of Tru--a stay-at-her-Park-Avenue-home-mom of twin teens whose husband loses his job in the financial meltdown--and glam sidekick Sienna, a TV anchor kicked to the curb for a younger face. The resourceful gals cook up a wacky plan to keep themselves in lipstick and lingerie: an escort agency specializing in well-bred over-40 "courtesans." It's a hit, and along the way, Tru competes to keep her husband; deals with her irrepressible mom, Naomi (a former Miss New York Subway), after her life-changing heart attack; and discovers her daughters are competing for the same wicked eighth-grade heartthrob. The multigenerational antics of this light, enjoyable romp are safely PG, as is the message: true love (or is it Tru's loves?) conquers all.”

“A funny, buoyant novel…(the author’s) combination of whip-smart dialogue, spot-on metaphors and the occasional steamy bedroom scene creates a hilarious hit that gives chick lit just the kick to keep it from going stale. As Sara’s girlfriend Berni might remark, Mine Are Spectacular! is better than a box of bonbons.”

— The New York Times

“Although I am nowhere near as fabulous as the irrepressible Sara, Berni and Kate in Mine Are Spectacular! by Janice Kaplan and Lynn Schnurnberger--the duo who whipped up midlife crisis fun in The Botox Diaries--I am at least fabulous-adjacent enough and age-appropriate enough to laugh at their 40-something adventures as go-getters who have a knack for going after the wrong thing.”
