In a follow-up to Tales From the Crib, Jennifer Coburn brings readers into the wacky world of Lucy Klein and her hilariously dysfunctional family. After selling her home in the suburbs, Lucy decides to pursue her lifelong dream of starting an arts community in the Berkshire Mountains. She envisions a creative oasis where struggling painters, sculptors and musicians visit from around the world. But the dream soon becomes a nightmare when the artists arrive and not a single one can create anything -- except trouble, that is. To make matters worse, Lucy's ultra-high-maintenance mother, Anjoli is singularly focused on finding a holistic cure for her teacup Chihuahua's obsessive compulsive, hair-pulling disorder. Rebirthing, acupuncture and white light therapy just aren't helping poor little Paz. But Anjoli soon has new problems to contend with, like the NYU sorority house going up across the street from her. Then there's Lucy's gorgeous cousin Kimmy who recently married herself in a dress made of disco ball mirrors, and now wants to get pregnant with Ivy League sperm. Deciding sperm banks have too many rules, she decides to go about things the old fashion way -- with a roundtrip train ticket to Princeton and a change of panties in her designer purse. Lest we forget about Lucy's 84-year-old Aunt Bernice who is grieving the loss of her sister who recently died at Red Lobster. Though she misses her Floridian counterpart, Bernice is not going to let anything stand in her way of exploring brave new worlds -- and Brazilian bikini waxes. Between Lucy's relatives and the artists from hell, it's a wonder she can focus on her own life. Enjoy a wild ride through the world of way over-the-top kiddie birthday parties, puppy psychotherapy and "performance art" weddings with a family so nutty, it will make you appreciate your own!

    1 star = I did not like it. 2 stars = It was OK, 3 stars = I liked it. 4 stars = I really liked it. 5 stars = It was amazing. This was recommended to me as a hilarious read. I also checked out the reviews and the majority also seemed to think this was hilarious. Clearly I have a different definition of hilarious. Ok so there was a moment of where a small snort escaped my lips, this was the pubic regrowth moment but other than that nothing.

I didn't warm to any of the characters I found them to be incredibly shallow and irritating, actually that is a lie, I liked Bernice the most even if it did take me a while to get my head around her accent. But then by the end I was past caring. I felt sorry for the dog Paz/Spot/Mancha/J-Lo no wonder it was chewing it's paws having a flaky owner alike Anjoli. As for Lucy, well simply dull. I have nothing more to add about her. Ghosts thrown in to the mix. *Pulling my best Spock impression* This book I am sorry to say the epitome of why I dislike Chick-lit.

    While it does have some humorous characters and situations, the book generally reads more like a collection of newspaper columns than a cohesive novel or memoir

    This is consistently funny and fun throughout. It deals with common themes of having a crazy mother, and the challenges of motherhood and marriage in an original and amusing way. I loved that Lucy’s mother Anjoli always began every phone conversation talking about herself and Lucy would interject something to the effect of, “I’m doing well, thank you for asking,” which her self-absorbed mother would ignore.

This is a super fun, fast read. The main character doesn’t harbor any resentment toward her mom as Lucy clearly has learned to accept Anjoli for who she is and simply find the humor in it.

    This is a laugh out loud chick lit book. Seriously, I was reading at lunch at work and almost spewed soda out my nose. There's a bit of vulgarity but it isn't gratuitous and it adds to the hilarity.

    Meh... Just not for me. Reads like a memoir and at times is so ridiculous that you can't believe someone actually made all this up and wrote it down much less published it.

Take your time and get it right! I want my second “Tales from the Crib” book! (God, I feel like such a bitch for writing this.)

I am only sorry that I didn't read book 1 yet (but I will).

It goes horribly wrong from the beginiing as the house is haunted but they don't know that. All the artist's are unable to produce any work.

    Silly and ridiculous Honesty, I could not get even half way through this book. The repetitiveness of a dog that keeps calling the daughter who hears the mother's conversations got ridiculous. Mom couldn't figure out the phone after all that time? Taking the dog to human doctors? Not my cup of tea.

The Queen Gene is no different, and I laughed my way through this novel. I literally got the hiccups from laughing so hard when it came to Anjoli and her dog! The artist community that Lucy and husband Jack create turn out to be nothing but trouble – but hilarious ones for the readers. If you are looking for some comedic relief mixed in with an engaging plot and lovely MC, pick up The Queen Gene–– ¬and check out more of Jennifer Coburn’s books for that matter! **4.5 stars**

Lucy and her husband, Jack, are fulfilling their dream of an artist colony. They have three guest houses in the back of their home for visiting artists. There is Chantrell, who plays the cello to encourage plants to grow. Maxime is a "pinprick" artist who moves in with his wife, Jacuqe. Randy is a very attractive glass blowing artist. Soon after the guests move in, their personalities seem to change and the place becomes a black hole, sucking everyone's creativity. The house starts repairing itself and multiple women get injured from tripping and falling. Lucy doesn't think much of it until someone suggests they may have ghosts. In addition, Lucy's family visits Aunt Bernice in Florida, Lucy's mom buys an anxious dog, Jack buys an old VW he parks on the front lawn to decorate for each season, and there is a wedding with a body painted bride. Just another day in the crazy life of Lucy and her family! This book had less of an overall plot than the last book did. The possibility of a ghost was not brought up until late in the book. I did wish the book had a little more of a major plot to tie all of those crazy events together. However, this only detracted a little bit from the story. Again, the story was hilarious. Lucy and Jack are calm, even-tempered main characters in the midst of some crazy events. I enjoyed reading about Aunt Bernice, Anjoli, and Kimmy and continuing their lives from the last book. I also liked some new characters we met, especially Renee. If you're looking for a funny, laugh out loud story with a good heart, check this series out!

    I can see why several people didn't like the book. It doesn't have a plot, yes, it's true. A couple of insane characters are thrown together and that makes the wheel turn, that's all. But I didn't mind. The book is fun, I enjoyed the new age mum with her self-centered attitude, though I felt sorry for the little dog. All characters were well drawn (or almost all), and for me, that really moves the book along. JC has imagination!!!

The book was full of surprises, in a good way, and I was glad to finally read a self-published book which is actually good. There's too much crap out there, with no plot, one-dimensional characters, no descriptions, no nothing except for grammatically correct sentences... Okay, so what didn't I like? There were some strange turns in the story, I think an other revision could have righted these points. For example I was confused about Lucy's marriage: it would have been better to know more about it earlier, or when she tells the story to Renée, it could have been fuller. This way it was pretty flat. (Later I learnt that there is a previous book solely about this, but hey, I haven't read it.) Also the arts community idea wasn't well built up: I just suddenly read about it on a page. Or the travel to the aunt: they decided to go and went, within a few pages. It was too random. So this book is for you if you like reading about funny, quirky, eccentric characters. This book isn't for you if you want the story to really go somewhere!

The story's witty and well written, the author weaves divergent shorelines well. Memorable characters include protagonist Lucy's New Age mother, narcissistic Anjoli, and her neurotic butt-dialing chihuahua, and other meddling relatives. Despite having perfect health, Anjoli has explored the gamut in alternative healing practices, from spun chakras to eye analysis, offers sage advice. She invests in gay theater and there are some queens in the story—but it doesn't help explain the title, other that everyone's flamboyant. There's Lucy's cousin model Kimmy who takes after Anjoli, Lucy's eternally upbeat aunt Bernice stuck in retirement party mode Florida, and there's more than a nodding reference to Lucy's party-crashing dead relatives, Bernice's sister cranky Rita, and husband George the handyman.

And, that character is nuanced and believable and actually, sympathetic. This is another one that I just wanted to keep reading and keep reading. I wanted to hang out with these characters. So, ++, there! Also, it was so funny that I laughed out loud and then read passages to my partner, who had already read the book, like, "Honey, here, listen to this thing that you just read!" That good.

Lucy comes to the conclusion that the house is haunted and arranges for a "space clearing", in which she learns the house actually IS haunted - by her aunt & uncle! There's also a naked wedding (the bride wears just body paint), dog acupuncture & other New Age healing sessions, and a hip-hop children's birthday party. Not great literature, but definitely entertaining!

I would have liked to learn more about some of the characters and others from the first book just disappeared altogether, which was a shame. The writing is consistent and entertaining. I finished the book in 2.5 hours, which is about average for this type of book. Still, a fun read and I'm glad I bought the book.

    I love this book. It was hilarious and witty. I loved the honesty of the characters, and how nothing was forced. The basic story is Lucy and her husband (and young son) create an artist colony. Thats the background, but the true story is in the relationship of Lucy and her "famous" mother Anjoli, whom Lucy loves, but is aggravated by most of the time.

    This was free and had good reviews so I thought I'd give it a try. The main character while likable was pretty annoying after a while. She came across as a complete pushover and most of the book was spent lamenting how she and her husband came close to divorce the day she planned to tell him she was pregnant (*gasp!*), the ridiculous antics of her fabulous new-age elderly mother, and her chubbiness.

I wasn't able to draw a picture of how any of the characters looked through the author's writing so I wasn't able to get attached to the story. I knew how it would end and finished it simply because I started it. However, I must add one of the bright spots of the book was the main character, Lucy and her nutty mother Anjoli helping a friend Renee come to terms with herself and her marriage.

    Good light summer reading.The book takes place in a soon-to-be artist colony. The main character and her husband are reconstructing their marriage and trying to build a new life together. Now add a wacky mom, a neurotic chihuahua, an aunt with a fixation on laser hair removal, and the Junior League. I enjoyed the tone, the off-beat characters, and the realistic family issues that underlay the humor.

    After reading Tales from the Crib I was excited to find that there was a sequel and started reading it immediately. I was honestly pretty bummed with this sequel, while I liked having familiar characters return, it almost got to be like the author was trying too hard? I don't know how to describe it but... eh. It was a fun read and I would still suggest it to anyone who read the first but it's just not quite as good.

    I didn't want the story to end In a seemingly unbelievable but completely believable story, the author weaves a narrative that can make you laugh, reflect, and fantasize at the same. I fell in love with the mother's candor, wishing I could live so freely. I certainly didn't expect the plot twist, but it made so much sense, hidden in plain sight. I'd read anything by Jennifer Coburn after this!
