Blame it on the vodka.
How many times have we said THAT before?? 😆
Hahhah totally kidding (maybe) … but for Celeste and Wendy – BLAME THE VODKA.
“Freaky Friday for the mom set, this novel by Harms (The Bright Side of Going Dark) is full of fun, relatable, and cringe-worthy moments, as each woman experiences life on the other side of the fence.” ―Library Journal
When Celeste: a Pinterest, stay-at-home, all-organic, makes-her-kids-clothes, super-mom and Wendy: a productivity consultant, motivational speaker, celebrated columnist throw-in-a-frozen-pizza, grab-a-happy-meal working mom, drink way too much special sangria at a neighborhood potluck… was transpires is one freaky week.
They wake up in each other bodies. Next to each others husbands. And have to live each others lives.
“I’ve gone and lost it. I think I’m someone I’m not, and someone else thinks she’s me, and I’m living in a 1970s children’s book that’s been remade by Disney at least 47 times.”
It’s Freaky Friday meets the Mommy Wars and it is a hilarious romp of body swapping shenanigans that takes on some fun and awkward twists and turns, and quite a few seriously hysterical and cringey moments.
The Seven Day Switch takes hangovers to the next level – but is also a heartwarming and sweet story, with a really clever twist on two moms who literally – lose their minds.
“Harms delights in The Seven Day Switch. When polar-opposites Celeste and Wendy chug magical sangria and find themselves literally walking in the other’s shoes, they’ll soon discover that maybe they aren’t so different after all. Heartwarming and hilarious, with an incredibly satisfying ending, we guarantee you will love this book!” ―Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of How to Save a Life
I absolutely loved The Overdue Life of Amy Byler and The Seven Day Switch was just as fun! I hope you’ll check this one out because it is a charming read full of witty snark and is a relatable story you’ll laugh out loud while reading!

About the Book:
Two moms as opposite as a Happy Meal and a quinoa bowl. What a difference a week makes in a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud novel by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler.
Celeste Mason is the Pinterest stay-at-home supermom of other mothers’ nightmares. Despite her all-organic, SunButter-loving, free-range kids, her immaculate home, and her volunteering awards, she still has time to relax with a nice glass of pinot at the end of the day. The only thing that ruins it all is her workaholic, career-obsessed neighbor, who makes no secret of what she thinks of Celeste’s life choices every chance she gets.
Wendy Charles is a celebrated productivity consultant, columnist, and speaker. On a minute-by-minute schedule, she makes the working-mom hustle look easy. She even spends at least one waking hour a day with her kids. She’s not apologizing for a thing. Especially to Celeste, who plays her superior parenting against Wendy whenever she can.
Who do Celeste and Wendy think they are? They’re about to find out thanks to one freaky week. After a neighborhood potluck and too much sangria, they wake up―um, what?―in each other’s bodies. Everything Celeste and Wendy thought they knew about the “other kind of mom” is flipped upside down―along with their messy, complicated, maybe not so different lives.
