About this Book:

Meet Ida LeClair, the funniest woman in Maine. Ida is also a newly minted "Certified Maine Life Guide" who wants to help you live a better, happier life. Ida is a lifelong resident of Mahoosuc Mills, a hard-to-find, but oh-so-familiar town in Western Maine, where she lives in a tidy and tastefully decorated double-wide with high school sweetheart Charlie and adorable dog Scamp. Most importantly, Ida (a.k.a the alter-ego of popular performer Susan Poulin) is a daughter, sister, wife, and best friend who draws upon her experiences (as well as those of the noble and majestic moose) to offer practical and hilarious advice on relationships, physical fitness, stress, housecleaning, work, shopping, fun, and more. (If you are looking for impractical, woo-woo advice from a glammed-up, over-educated, fancy-schmancy life coach, just keep looking!)

In Finding Your Inner Moose: Ida LeClair's Guide to Livin' the Good Life, you'll find sections such as: What Did I Do Wrong to Deserve this Turkey Gobbler Neck; How Many Points in Cabbage Soup?; I Can't Die Today Because if Anyone Saw the State of my House I'd Just Die; Feng Shui-ing the Double Wide; Slaying Energy Vampires; Spousal Deafness. This book is 100% Ida, who, as her husband Charlie, often says, "just loves giving advice to people, whether they ask for it or not!"
