Praised for her “refreshingly real” novels, Whitney Gaskell delivers a warm and witty story of four women coping with the challenges of motherhood, men, and each other.

With a son in his Terrible Twos, divorced working mother Anna is too busy to reenter the world of dating, no matter how expertly her new admirer woos her. Grace has three beautiful daughters and the perfect husband, but she’s increasingly obsessed with her weight. Juliet wants to make partner at her law firm while her husband stays home with their twins, but at the office, Juliet is finding more than work to occupy her. When Chloe gives birth, her husband seems indifferent to parenting. Overwhelmed, Chloe slips back into a nasty habit she thought she’d overcome.

Filled with humor and charm, Mommy Tracked illuminates four friends, their intertwining lives, and their joys and mistakes along the way.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen Cornellier | 2/2/2014

    " OK book. It was an easy read. Subject matter was not too deep but that is what I expected. It was a pretty realistic portrait in that each mother was different struggling with different things. It certainly didnt brush over how difficult it can be to raise kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sydney | 1/20/2014

    " Started this one on the plane to DC. Finished it in about three sittings. Decent book, for chick lit. Didn't have to think real hard about it, but it was exactly what I needed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Randi | 12/29/2013

    " This book was so trite and cliche! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 10/18/2013

    " Great "mom lit" book. Four main characters all face different life challenges yet remain similar in their quest to "have it all". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany L. | 10/8/2013

    " Took me a couple weeks to read this one. It just wasn't a page turner. An easy read, but just not something I was hurrying to get back to. It doesn't pick up at all like I had hoped it would. I suppose was still enjoyable, just a light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 9/28/2013

    " Easy summer read: serious and funny stories about 4 girlfriends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Fuller | 8/2/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 6/27/2013

    " this is a great light reading, very fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karla | 5/26/2013

    " It's a fun read. I had to try and not laugh out loud while on a flight. There's just so much about it to like. Each of the characters had some trait or experience that to which I could relate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Simpson | 5/17/2013

    " Well as surprised as I was this was a great book. I mulled over all the female characters and if I took a few traits from each of them I could make a mirror copy of myself! AWESOME! I will go out of my way to find more books by this author. A good read for all woman! A++++++ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia Mahon | 4/28/2013

    " This is a funny, honest book that all moms can relate with... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginny | 12/2/2012

    " I will pay someone to take this book from me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara Connelly Tucker | 8/15/2012

    " Cute, quick read. Great for summer vacation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 5/5/2012

    " Despite having been a stay-at-home mom and now being a working mom, I had a hard time relating to any of the characters. Maybe my friends and I are too normal, or more likely we just have different issues. However, I'm always a sucker for a happy ending tied in a bow and it was a quick fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 May | 4/28/2012

    " I may have just experienced the generation gap with this one. I think I am just too old to appreciate it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linaya | 2/21/2012

    " Surprisingly insightful and witty! Usually, when I read a chick-lit book, Im not expecting too much (unless its a Shopaholic book; those are incredible!!!), but this book grabbed me immediately after starting it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loriinengland | 2/2/2012

    " Frivolous read--but sometimes you just need that! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 11/12/2011

    " This was another fun read. It is a story about 4 different mom/wives who became friends through their mommy group. The stories of each woman are told in chapters (ie, one chapter is Grace the next is Juliet and so on.) It is traditional chick lit with good humor and funny story lines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ramona | 10/6/2011

    " Just finished this one up. It took about 5 chapters for me to get so into it that I could not put it down. If you are in the mood for a great chick lit book, then this is the one for you. It tracks the lives of 4 friends and their struggles with mommyhood, relationships and family. Good stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/5/2011

    " As another reader said, this is like a 'Sex and the City' for the mommy crowd. I enjoyed following the characters and could have continued reading on about their lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ Conroy | 9/28/2011

    " Acceptable mommy lit, but why would I want to read about people with the same mundane problems as me? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 9/4/2011

    " It's pretty standard chick lit, but I liked it a lot more than I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charity | 5/8/2011

    " Very cute book about four mothers and the personal challenges they are dealing with. I flew through this one! Not sure that Whitney Gaskell is capable of writing a bad book. :-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tummysnap | 4/7/2011

    " This book was so trite and cliche! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 3/30/2011

    " The one thing that troubled me on this one was there was no mom who had it all...

    Maybe that is because we can't... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 11/23/2010

    " I liked this mindless "chick-lit" book! It was just the sort of thing I needed. And I could relate to the mommies in the story (no judging!) I may try the other books by this author - hopefully they are just as devoid of intellect! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ | 11/14/2010

    " Acceptable mommy lit, but why would I want to read about people with the same mundane problems as me? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 9/24/2010

    " I liked Mommy Tracked. Being a mother of 2 I can relate to a lot of what was going on in the book. If your not a mother, you may think the book is exaggerated and caddy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryeah | 9/17/2010

    " Cute, average chick lit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 9/4/2010

    " I liked the story. Characters were well developed. A little depressing in that all the women try to have it all and fail in some way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 8/12/2010

    " fiction - one of the few pieces of complete fiction I have read lately.
    Mommy chick-lit - which i enjoyed.
    "
