American Homemaker feels like a mix of Desperate Housewives, with its soapy/ridiculous take on the all-American housewife, and Alias, a serious and twisty thriller about uncovering conspiracies. The first two chapters of the book are split between two viewpoints--that of Megan, a newcomer and member of the Homemakers Association of Vermont, and Melody Morgan, an assassin for hire who has just taken out a mark. The tonal shift is slightly jarring, but the premise seems interesting.
