This isn't your typical housewife story. Be prepared to be blown away!
***What America is Reading Now!***
Suburban Task Force is a humor filled, high octane, action-comedy. It follows Jade Lydell, who at thirty one finds herself living the surreal life of a married suburbanite. Her simple, and now materialistic days are busy with shopping, drinking and playing with couples that live the same high-end lifestyle.
It takes a home invasion scare and a co-workers brutal mugging to wake Jade from her suburban slumber. The adventure begins when she and her two best friends forgo an uplifting spa retreat for an intense tactical, gun and self defense weekend, all without their husbands' knowledge.
Upon their return, feeling rejuvenated and proud, the women try to re-adapt to their suburban lifestyles. Not so easy when you have to attend a VIP party on Catalina Island with the who's who of Hollywood and Politics. Without warning, the island is taken hostage by a rogue terrorist group. With the men and women separated, and all outside communication cut off, Jade and her friends feel their only hope is to use their combined talents and outlandish movie knowledge to outsmart their captors.
Comedy and daring action ensue as the three women, with one weekend of self defense training, try to lead an all out attack against those holding their loved ones hostage.
If you are a fan of the Stephanie Plum series or enjoy an action packed, laugh out loud read this is the book for you!

"Jersey Girl Book Reviews"
This book really took me out of my real life and deposited me right in with the characters.
I was highly entertained throughout. The ending was particularly my favorite, and I was speeding through the chapters to see how the situation would end. I think action-packed is a great way to describe this book, and I enjoyed it and look forward to more from Addison Towne!
"Chick Lit Plus"
Quirky and funny, Suburban Task Force was a clever take on the women's literature genre with plenty of action for fans of suspense. The story's greatest strength definitely came from the premise, which was unusual and fun.
Towne definitely has a unique story on her hands, here. The mix of suspense, humor and often silly women had me flipping the pages to the end.
