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.

I couldn't finish this book. the protagonist is such a victim, I just wanted to shake her and yell 'snap out of it.' I usually enjoy this author, but this story line was just too much to swallow.
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 always really enjoy her books they are fun easy comforting books this one was funny and I blog and enjoy redoing homes and cooking. So I liked this one more than some . The narrators are always great I have listened to allot of them more then once.
A member of our book club chose this book. Most of the group stopped reading or listening about half way through. A couple of us promised to read/listen all the way to the end. The dialogue was awful and the voices used by the narrator were really annoying.
Fun listening, delving into a place I hope I never have to go, a really nasty divorce. I could feel the frustration and exasperation of everyone in the "anger management" group, but they didn't let it defeat them . Not as much humor as some of MK's books, and long, but I she always ties up the loose ends.
I liked the book because the story's main character Grace was someone who was funny and smart in a real way; the rest of the characters had distinct personalities and baggage. Interesting twists and turns in each person's life, just a smidgen of drama and a happy ending made it an easy, fun read.
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.
