Publisher's Summary

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 30-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.

So touching, funny, wonderful

I've loved Lisa Scottoline's fiction for years and hearing this compilation and expanded take on her and her daughter Francesca's Chick Wit columns was a joy. The fact that these two talented women can not only write extremely well, but can also read what they've written in such an engaging and likable way is just amazing. I can't recommend this book strongly enough!

Gives you a laugh

Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella and/or Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella ?

A funny book that will make you laugh - - as a single parent I recall so many of the same moments of trying to keep everything together and wondering how I would survive - yet alone how two kids would survive thrive and grow up to be responsible adults. It reminds us that humor really is the best medicine.
