Book Description: 

The unstoppable, irreverent mother-daughter team presents a new collection of funny stories and true confessions that every woman can relate to. From identity theft to the hazards of bicycling to college reunions and eating on the beach, Lisa and Francesca tackle the quirks, absurdities, and wonders of everyday life with wit and warmth. As Lisa says, “More and more, especially in the summertime when I’m sitting on the beach, I’m learning not to sweat it. To go back to the child that I used to be. To see myself through the loving eyes of my parents. To eat on the beach. And not to worry about whether every little thing makes me look fat. In fact, not to worry at all.”

So put aside your worries and join Lisa and Francesca as they navigate their way through the crazy world we live in, laughing along the way.


I am a huge fan of Lisa Scottoline’s humor books.  I know she is mostly known for her novels, but I don’t read a lot of fiction.  While I was in a book store I saw many years ago I found her book, “My Third Husband will be a Dog” and the title intrigued me so I picked it up.  I never laughed so hard in my life.  From that time on, I pick up every new humor book she (and now with Francesca) have written.  This book tells the stories that we hate to admit could be our own, but we are too embarrassed to tell them to anyone.  These ladies know how to be real and share their antics in such a way that is hilarious.  When I need to a lift, all I have to do is read a chapter and I am good to go.  I have enjoyed it so much I can’t even pick a favorite chapter.  Each one is unique and hits home.  If you are looking for a short, enjoyable read, you will like this book.  You won’t regret the time reading it.
