Moms’ Night Out (Novelization) by Tricia Goyer – [Review]

USA Today best-selling author Tricia Goyer has written the novelization to the much-anticipated movie, Moms’ Night Out. Don’t miss this hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.

And, look for the companion devotional written by comedian Kerri PomarolliMoms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions To Help You Survive.

Since I don’t have kids, I passed this book on to my mom! Here’s her review:

Who would have thought that after 37 years of marriage and raising 4 kids that this mom would have read Moms’ Night Out?! I’d already read the devotional and absolutely loved it…so why not finish it off by reading the actual book? I’m so glad I did!!! This entertaining characterization of the modern Christian mom and family brings to light issues that many of us deal (or don’t deal) with. When a group of moms try for a night away from the regular routine of the day to day responsibilities, all sorts of questions and seemingly insurmountable problems arise. Can he (Dad) handle this one babysitting night without the kids bringing down the house, all the while entertaining his best friend? Can Mom actually relax, thinking she’s planned the perfect night out for herself and a couple of girlfriends? Does God really care how hard Mom is trying to fulfill all she believes she is meant to do? And could long-kept secrets being revealed actually be a good thing? I urge you to READ THIS BOOK! It’s definitely a help for the modern mom. My only criticism is that there were a ton of grammatical errors. The author tended to change tenses in the middle of sentences, which made reading the book a bit confusing. If changing tenses and misuse of pronouns bother you, maybe you should just check out the movie instead. Otherwise, buy this book!

Info from the Publisher:

All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours—what could go wrong?

Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom’s Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.

The MOMS’ NIGHT OUT film features Sarah Drew (Grey’s Anatomy), Sean Astin (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), Patricia Heaton (EVERBODY LOVES RAYMOND, THE MIDDLE), Alex Kendrick (COURAGEOUS), Robert Amaya (COURAGEOUS), Andrea Logan White (REVELATION ROAD), Kevin Downes (COURAGEOUS), and platinum-selling country recording artist Trace Adkins (THE LINCOLN LAWYER).
