OVERRIDE

Rattled

Debra Galant

St. Martin's Press

Set in the fictional subdivision of Galapagoes Estates,” Rattled is a very funny look at what happens when soccer moms, animal rights activists, dishonest real estate developers and, of course, rattlesnakes get together and fight for ascendancy in the rapidly developing New Jersey suburbs.

Heather Peters is anxious to move to the newly minted development. All she wants there is a nice house.  Well, a nice house and a nice piece of land.  And of course a basement gym, a master bath with radiant heat, Jacuzzi and his-and-her toilets. She could make do without a media room if she had to.  After all, the pioneers hadn’t had plasma TV, and they’d survived.  Heather is not your average suburban housewife—or maybe she is.  Her fortuitous meeting with a endangered  species of rattlesnake sets this first novel in motion.  You may find yourself feeling sorry for the snake.
