Decades earlier, Buddy was the business partner of Ava’s late husband, as well as his best friend during the Vietnam War. Ava feels she has good reasons for hating Buddy she blames him for the fall of their business, an Irish pub that was a staple of the community. The loss not only destroyed her husband but also pushed her headfirst into the vodka bottle.
Suzanne eventually finds out that Buddy and Ava’s past goes back much further than either has admitted. She begins to wonder whether Ava truly hates Buddy, or whether her feelings are much more complicated, as are her own when Molly announces that she’s not pregnant, but gay.
Based on the award-winning play, She Effin' Hates Me is about three women relearning to love one another for who they are and, more importantly, for who they’re not.

She hated him and I hated this book
The story is predictable, sappy sweet, and ultimately boring. Enduring love deserves a better context. The narrator was only average, although adept at distinguishing between characters. The characters themselves are like the story--unbelievable, sappy, boring.

Well-Executed, But Shallow and Predictable
I have to admit that I couldn't finish listening to this. The narration is very good, and I think that I will seek out this reader in other books. The writing is well-executed, but the actual story seems shallow and predictable. At first, I was attracted to the light, witty banter between the characters. Then I started to realize that I could predict what the characters were going to say next - and that all of the characters talked the same way (regardless of the voice that the narrator gave them.) Some people might see this as a light summer listen, but I really don't have the time for it.
