In A Working Mom’s Nightmare, Kathy, a modern working woman has everything: the perfect job, a gorgeous baby, a loving husband, and a beautiful home Anyone woman would be lucky to be her. Or at least that’s what she wants them to think.

The hotshot businesswoman may have everyone else fooled. But someone knows her secret. Hannah, Kathy’s employee, knows just how much pressure Kathy is under to keep up “the perfect life” facade. Playing on the naive wife’s paralyzing fear, Hannah sets out to get her life back—the one Kathy stole from her.

And if she succeeds, she can claim the one thing she wants most.”
