Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline's first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her--now she's back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She's farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed--ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa's finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same--Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who won't part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra.

In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets--which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion.

Inspired by her weekly column entitled, "Chick Wit" for "The Philadelphia Inquirer, "this is a book you'll have to put down--just to stop laughing.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-03-01)

Edgar Award-winning novelist Scottoline (scot to line.com), whose previous nonfiction work, Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog (2009), was informed by her weekly "Chick Wit" column for the Philadelphia Inquirer, here teams up with daughter Francesca in a sequel brimming with Scottoline's trademark humor, frankness, and self-deprecation. The brief vignettes are well paced and touch on universal themes that will resonate with audiences of all ages. Whether the topic is aging, dogs, house cleaning, family secrets, or buying a larger TV, listening to the book is like sitting with an old friend telling stories-you don't want the night to end and you want to be invited back again. Highly recommended for all audiences.

Book description

Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline’s first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her—now she’s back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She’s farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed—ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa’s finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same—Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who won’t part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra. In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets—which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion. Inspired by her weekly column entitled, “Chick Wit” for The Philadelphia Inquirer, this is a book you’ll have to put down—just to stop laughing.
