Moms’ Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
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).

Author Tricia Goyer has been a favorite of mine for a couple years now, and I have been transported to a variety of different life experiences and historical experiences through her books.
This time however, she brings the reader to the world of parenting, specifically, being a mom. It is a hilarious read and I felt myself relating to so many of the situations both the mom's and dad's found themselves in. I read the book AFTER seeing the movie (which was fantastic!) and felt that I actually enjoyed the book more. Tricia kept the book very much in line with the movie, with a few extras, and it was cute, inspiring and fun. I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion, knowing that the various situations are so real, happening to any one of us, on any given day. It was inspiring to know that life happens and yet we are great mom's that just need time out to recharge and that is okay to admit!
Mom's of all ages and stages can, and will, relate to the book, its wonderful cast of characters and the life lessons learned by all of them. Motherhood is a journey, with both good and bad moments, but Tricia reminds us that it's this journey that makes us who we are in Christ.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
