Jean and Rosie, opposites in every way, are dealing with different aspects of their lives when they find themselves working side-by-side in the same real estate company. Despite reluctance, they also find themselves teaming up for some new mid-life adventures filled with excitement, romance and plenty of drama. As they become better acquainted, a friendship begins to form. They laugh, cry, and even fight together. Until finally, during a slumber party and while sporting polyester pajamas, they entrust their lives completely to each other and share their deepest, darkest secrets. Through it all, they discover how truly wonderful having a best friend, at any age, can be. If you've ever had or needed a best friend, have wondered what life was all about, have been ashamed of something you've done in the past, or if you've ever lost someone you loved with all of your heart, then you must listen to this book!

I can't say enough great things about this book and the narrator! I need to bond with characters in books and movies, and boy did I. the story is precious and Jean and Rosie are adorable. I can't wait to listen to them all!
At first I was a little put off by the characters abrasiveness. But as the story unfolds you come to understand and then you settle in to listen to things develop. I received this book at no charge in exchange for my honest review. I think if your a fifty something this could be a good fit. But I don't think younger people would understand the journey that these characters have been on. With age comes life's experiences and you just can't get that without having made the journey. So much of what they go though from death, divorce, children leaving home, starting over you can't appreciate until your either there or already on that path. So in my humble opinion not a twenty something book.
I found this book extremely enjoyable. The characters were easily distinguishable from each other as Carolyn did a great job with her voices. I found that Jeans' character hit a nerve with relationships that I have known. I look forward to hearing more about Jean and Rosie's adventures and friendship.

I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.
Carolyn Power did an amazing job narrating. I really enjoyed listening to the differences in her voice for Jean and Rosie. it made listening to this story very easy to keep up with. the story was a little slow but I liked seeing the relationship between Rosie and Jean grow.
I really enjoyed In Polyester Pajamas it was a good clean book and the narration was well done. This one is well worth reading going to read the others. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author,narrator,or publisher

Pleasant narration but I found the story line lacking a little excitement. Good for some light reading but not a real memorable book in my humble opinion.
In Polyester Pajamas: Jean and Rosie Series, Volume 1
: Catherine Dougherty
A story of a 50 year old woman, mean as can be. She has many life changes happen in a rather short time period. People move in and out of her life. The new co-worker will either be the best thing ever, or kill her in the process. I guess you could almost classify this as a coming of age book, just an older age.I will try and find the next book in this series, because I want more of these characters.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Carolyn Power.
