Publisher's Summary

The Junior League of Willow Creek, Texas, is très exclusive. Undesirables need not apply. Fredericka Mercedes Hildebrand Ware (Frede to her friends) is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would prefer to keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge - Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood. But there's a price: She has to get his tacky, four-inch-stiletto-and-pink-spandex-wearing wife, Nikki, into the Junior League.The crème de la crème of Southern royalty should sit up and take notice, and hang on tight for this irresistible tale of getting in and getting even.

Fun chick lit

I added this to my "to read" list when this first came out and I saw what a fit the Junior Leagues of American were throwing about its contents. Never having been in a Junior League in Texas but with friends that were, I was curious. This was fun, easy, "escape" reading. I actually started it twice because when I first began, it just seemed too lightweight for me to care. The obviously not-from-Texas accent was initially very distracting for me since I am a Texan and NO ONE native to this state speaks this way. The narrator has a consistent southern accent and does a wonderful job with the different voices and once I got past her lack of a Texas accent, I enjoyed her reading. No one choosing this is expecting deep, meaningful literature, but for those looking for a light, distracting summer read, this fits the bill.

Fun Read

I downloaded this book from the half price sale not sure if I would like it but decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. This piece of non fiction is a delightful read as the protagonist, Frede Ware turns from snob to sort of snob. An upstanding member of Willow Creek, near-president of the Junior League, practically untouchable Frede watches her perfect unravel before her eyes. Not believing that the "Fabulous Frede Ware" could have such things happen to her, she begins to touch the "NC" (no class) side of life and in doing so, experiences personal growth. But don't let that story line scare you. Linda Francis Lee writes this light hearted comedy in such an engaging way that you can't help but smile all the way through. I was disappointed that the book was over and immediately went back to Audible to see if she had anything else I could download. Jenna Lamia is an excellent narrator and does the southern bell accent perfectly, getting just the right tone of someone with money and someone without it. I fell in love with the book almost instantly. I highly recommend the book.
