Publisher's Summary

Why, oh why, did Anne Marie Whitehall take her own life, swallowing away her pain and her grief with a handful of Nembutal capsules and a bottle of Merlot? Does Samantha Jacobs, the red-haired vixen grinding away on a pole at the Revue know?
Or perhaps Deena Cook, harried mother of four and a regular visitor at Children's Services?
Or does Cierra Maldonado, mother of two children by two different men, not receiving a penny of child support and working as a cocktail waitress at a chi-chi club in downtown Cincinnati know why?
Or perhaps Lettie Robinson, a 400-pound housewife of three healthy and hungry little boys, who knows the meat display at Wal-Mart better than the inside of her own trailer.
Well, someone knows why Anne Marie Whitehall committed suicide, but she isn't talking.
And everyone wants to know who the raven-haired, glacially thin woman is: the one who's walking around the trailer park and sending secret notes to certain dear - and dearly departed - friends.

Crazy Funny Book For Sure!

This was very different than what I am used to reading. There is some crude language, some very obese women, strippers, neglecting moms, irresponsible babysitters, drug trafficking, betrayal, some mystery around an unexpected suicide, and all men are a waste of space. There are crazy moments, funny moments, bonding moments between the women that live in the same trailer park. We are familiar with the stereotypes and this audiobook brings them to reality.

The narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Anne Marie’s suicide seems to be more complex than at first glance. The story is told in multiple POV. We learn about each of them and their struggles. We are left with multiple cliffhangers. I’m planing to get the second book to see how this story concludes.

I'm still in shock

An excerpt from the last chapter in this book: 'Oh it would be so nice. It would be so sweet to get a grandchild to raise before she turned 40. She would quit stripping, that was for good and sure.' That should pretty much sum up this listen.

Don't get me wrong, this book stayed true to the genre and along with the strippers, child neglect, obese women and no good men, it provided some great female bonding, happy and sad moments, and strong family dynamics. What it did not provide was the reason for Anne Marie's suicide.

I liked the narrator. This listen could have easily slipped into 'caricatureville' but Corey was really adept at making her voices unique and resonate in sync with the issues each character was facing.

I didn't hate the listen but I didn't love it enough to want to listen to book two.
