Take a splash of betrayal, add a few drops of outrage, give a good shake to proper behavior and take a big sip of a cocktail called…Ladies' Night!
Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday "Ladies' Night" sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?
Heartache, humor, and a little bit of mystery come together in a story about life’s unpredictable twists and turns. Mary Kay Andrews' Ladies' Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.

Almost too realistic. Brings back a lot of bad memories about divorce and lying spouses. Mary Kay Andrews can't write a bad book but the beginning of this will leave anyone who's ever dealt with a cheater tense. Victory prevails in the end so it ends well. I would highly recommend it with a warning about flashbacks if you've ever been there and done that!
I got into listening to audio books while traveling and now have found them a source of comfort day & night! Robyn Carr is my Fav
Well, not exactly what I expected, I thought I was in for pure humor and levity and found that I got quite emotional in a number of the scenes.
If you have ever been through a divorce this may drug up some old memories of your own experience.
At one point, I almost stopped listening to the book, I had already determined the outcome, but there were portions of the story that were disturbing to me.
I enjoyed the book for the most part but I must admit that there was nothing very exciting about it at all. In one way it's was nice that it was just a consistent good story, but on the other hand I was anxious for some juice! I felt intrigued to hear the story after the way that it started pissed me off on the behalf of married women everywhere! I just had to know what happened to Grace and her cheating husband! I was satisfied, but not having a climax in a novel is new to me.
I bought this book to listen to on a cruise vacation. The premise sounded humorous but it was really quite depressing. I ended up skipping to the end after only listening to a few chapters. What a waste of a credit!
Bring more Callahan Garrity please!!!
The story was all over the place with this one and parts towards the end we're just crazy; but I still love Mary Andrews.
I enjoyed the character development and the length of the book... not too long and not too short.
Chick Flick for Sure
Absolutely! If we haven't lived through this, we know someone who did! Very entertaining, didn't want it to end.
All of it!
I'm not sure. I will have to check.
I really enjoyed it.
I don't think they synapses gave this book justice. I wasn't sure when I read it but the reviews were good (I also liked her first book I read, Spring Fever). I really enjoyed it! Cute story line. Also the narrator did a great job!
