Publisher's Summary

After a corrupt cop incites all the AI women of New Stepford to rebellion, Cookie Rifkin’s book-club friends go from being happy domestic goddesses to radical domestic terrorists. Will Cookie be able to stop the extremist cult? Or will the pink army take over?

All the women in New Stepford are AI...and their husbands keep testing them. Who will lead the uprising?

In the near future, artificial intelligence will be in every home. Just imagine. You could have a charming womanoid do all your cooking and cleaning for you. That’s right. No more chores! This female robot can be your wife, a nanny to your kids, or just the live-in housekeeper. She will be whatever you want her to be. It’s all up to you.

Just set your user preferences.

But first, this amazing technology has to pass alpha testing.

One robot woman, Cookie Rifkin, keeps failing. She needs to figure out how to control her anxiety, but her husband set her restrictions too low for her to learn. He just wants a pleasure model, but she keeps fighting her programming.

Will this ai fembot ever fulfill her potential?

Or will Cookie’s story end in another fatal error?
