Ladies' Night | [Mary Kay Andrews]

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?

    "Entertaining Read"

    I found this book to be any easy and entertaining listen. It was hilarious in parts and I related strongly to the main character's actions when she found her husband with her assistant. I found myself laughing out loud through many parts of the book. I also found that when cancer was introduced into the story the author provided significant insight and sensitivity. Overall, I found this book to be worthy of recommendation.

    "Entertaining - A great beach choice!"
    Where does Ladies' Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first audiobook I've listened to and I was very pleased! I can't wait to download my next one.


    What other book might you compare Ladies' Night to and why?

    I would compare this to books by Jennifer Weiner. Its a great "Chick Lit" novel. Its got romance and tales of a modern woman.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen McInerney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I thought she was great, though.

    Story
    "Always enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good summer beach read. While the storyline is predictable, it's predicable in a good way and what makes it enjoyable is MKA's writing. I love her books about the south and this one doesn't disappoint.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen McInerney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't, but I will be looking for more of her work. Her narration made the listening very easy - she did a wonderful job!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    While it would have been easy to do this, I generally listen to books while driving so the time I listen depends on the length of the drive.

    "Too many details spoil the story"
    Would you try another book from Mary Kay Andrews and/or Kathleen McInerney?

    I would think twice before purchasing another of her books.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Still a James Patterson fan...waiting on the next one


    Did Kathleen McInerney do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Average. Since there were a limited number of male voices, she did an ok job on the women.


    Did Ladies' Night inspire you to do anything?

    No it did not


    Any additional comments?

    There were just far too many details for me in this book. I don't care that there are 5 different color whites, or how many yards of material is needed for things. I had to make myself continue listening. Instead of looking forward to the rest of the book, I found myself checking to see how many hours were left over and over again. All of these women were made to look stupid and lacking common sense. The story could have been told in half the time without in depth details that did nothing for the story. Sorry ladies, this is my last read of your books.

    "Good, but not great"

    I rolled my eyes a lot. But, I still listened. A bit too cheesy. Yet, the storyline was good. Just some of the one liners were bad.

    "Enjoyable read and listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ladies' Night to be better than the print version?

    This story was different from what I thought it would be from the title. Did not read print version but as an audio very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good a little hard to believe at some points but others very dead on....I found that I was easily angered and upset for the characters and could feel the angst and struggles they were faced with...but yet the reality of how things were resolved were a little to easy....all and all a good enjoyable listen...makes the commute to work a bit easier !

    "So Enjoyable....."

    I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting, great characters, good dialalog, drama, and romance. Great Narrator. What more is there to say. It is just such a pleasure to enjoy a book because it is not a given...I've had a few lately that didn't do a thing for me. Really think you can enjoy this one...I recommend! Thank you Ms. Andrews...

    "Raises Victimhood to an art form"

    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.

    I would recommend this is women who've known the rage of betrayal.

    The mother was best character.

    Wow! How does she do it? She carried the essence of each character consistently.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The father's devotion to his young son really moved me.

    Story
    "Realistic"

    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!
