The bestselling and “perennially hilarious” mother-daughter team is back with a new collection of stories from their real lives, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Join Lisa and Francesca as they regret drunk-shopping online, try smell-dating, and explore the freedom of a hiatus from men - a Guyatus. They offer a fresh and funny take on the triumphs and facepalm moments of modern life, showing that when it comes to navigating the crazy world we live in, you’re always your own best lifeguard.

I have read Lisa Scottoline's Rosato & Associates series and her other fiction books and love them. I have read a few by this mother-daughter writing duo and honestly have enjoyed what I have read in these true life essays.
This is no exception. They make me laugh with them. I feel like I am sitting at the kitchen table with friends sharing stories. My favorite was Lisa’s gardening essay when she discovered the snakes (I had the same reaction). I celebrated Francesca’s moment of empowerment after an attack.
Thank you, ladies, for sharing your life with the world. I enjoy the writing style, the touch of sarcasm, the honesty you will feel in the words. I highly recommend this read. I know you can relate to either Lisa or Francesca – probably both! So sit by the pool with a big bowl of spaghetti and enjoy. (Lisa fans will get that.) Highly recommended!

My Review: This was such a fun read! I love good comedy and these writers are awesome. It's kind of neat because the chapters are spaced out, so you get the mom's generation viewpoint, then her daughter's generation viewpoint. They aren't totally different, but that just makes it more interesting. I hope my daughter and I are close like Lisa and Francesca when she is 30 and I am 60. :-)
