First off if you enjoy a good laugh then Molly Harper would fit the bill... her writing is hilarious with a good story line. The plot moves along at a good pace and has a good number of "OMG no way" laugh until you cry moments. This is the 3rd book of hers I have read and each one seems to be as good as the first. Would definitely recommend her to anyone. I listened to this as an Audible but I am getting the hard copy for a couple of friends who are too old school to listen to or get a kindle lol. The narrator has done great with each book.
The e-mail sent by Lacy Terwilliger. I doubt that there is a person out there that hasn't fantasized about sending just such a letter.
Amanda Ronconi is a wonderful listen. This performance is as good as any other she's done. If I'm dithering on a selection, seeing her as the narrator will certainly tip the scales towards purchase.
Molly Harper uses great wit, sarcasm and one liners to deal with a difficult situation -finding out after everyone else in town already knows that your husband has been having an affair while you've given up your life to be the wife he expects.
But she doesn't do it in a sad, self-pitying way -she goes for him publicly using her entertaining wit through the newsletter he has her write to his clients each month. And in a small town, it opens all kinds of talk. I have felt everything she felt and it was like my words finally being expressed.
She decides to escape to the house left to her by her grandmother on the lake and meets a reclusive writer. After several hysterical embarrassing moments, they finally become friends and being a journalism major herself, she decides to write a horror novel where the house that she and her cheating ex-husband shared eats him.
Her mother and brother are perfect complements to her part. All in all, the characters are believable, funny and you ride the roller coaster of the ups and downs of divorce with her.
So funny, couldnt stop listening
Just very funny
Everything...she makes the book
Yes, absolutely. Definitely very hard to put down
The things I know for sure I am are: Christian, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter, Sister, American, Patriot, Friend, Teacher, Student, Seeker, and Thinker. I am far from perfect but I do try to be kind, honest, honorable, trusting and trustworthy. Lover of sunshine, books, southern food, vacations in national parks, singing in my car, cookie dough and icing, and cucumber margaritas.
Top 5 of this genre! Possibly top 15 overall.
I really loved when her mother-in-law comes to see her at her mothers house after she sends out the emailed newsletter.
I loved all of them, but the mens voices tended to sound the same. It was still great narration though!
It made me proud of her! As usual, when the book ended I felt like I had lost a friend.
If you are going through the drama of having a cheating spouse this book is for you. Download it, listen to it all the way through and let go of your own drama for a few hours like I did. It is a nice distraction to the obsession that follows infidelity.
Hilarious, wonderful, earthly
That it was down to earth
The news letter scene
I have listened to this book multiple times, and this authors other books as well
Mom of three
The main character was unfiltered, acting out like most of us want to do when wronged.
The opening scene was great.
The narrator captured the women's voices fairly well.
This was a great story to listen to on the way to school! It does run on at times but the rants are humorous to so it quite good!
I never read the print version.
I like how the characters hated each other at first.
I really enjoy her voice.
I always laught at Molly's book. She is one of the funniest authors that I read.
A little too much launguage. Some is funny but too much is a turn off.
