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.

Ladies' Night is extremely entertaining! Mary Kay Andrews is one of the best authors to listen to on Audiobooks because her stories keep you so intrigued and the narrators are always so good!
I would compare this book to any of Mary Kay Andrews' books, but I can't think of any other books to compare it to. The books are funny, emotional, and I can always relate to the characters in the book. I think everyone knows people like the characters in these books, so they are really easy to follow along with and will keep you laughing the whole time!
She is a really good narrator, which made the book more appealing than it would have been otherwise.
This book was a nice distraction due to the excellent narration - easy listening if but a bit predictable. More of a "chick" book for sure.
The headline says it all. I have really enjoyed all the Mary Kay Andrews books. I liked this one too but I think it was a tad too long. The characters were fun and the narration was very good. I just felt like the story was being dragged out for no apparent reason. I would recommend this book but I liked some of the earlier ones better.
I am a salesperson on the road everyday, mother of 2 grown children. Happily married
It's on the top. I loved it, the book was a fun and fast read
For light and easy reading, it was a great book
I liked the little decorating and cooking ideas from the blog thrown into the storyline of her terrible divorce
Probably when they were all sitting around teliing what they did to their exes
Say something about yourself! Name is Jill...not Mike???
The story was so trite. so predictable, and the narrator trying to do all the characters'
voices was to say the least annoying.
Narrator's voice was so annoying...that can ruin a story...
I'm not going to give this one 5 stars simply because I think some of the character development here was not MK's best. It would have been nice to see inside the lives a little more of the other members of the divorce recovery group.
If divorce is your thing, I would recommend Mary Kay's Savannah Blues!
Author took a great premise and buried it by writing a book with zero tension.
The premise and character development.
I really liked Ashley, because her self-involvement was so entertaining. It was entertaining to hear her thought process (as she unapologetically thought of no one but herself). Of course, in real life, I would stay as far away as possible!
The dog, of course!
Everybody starts out nice and ends up nice...with a few nasty moments in between. Recommended listening for anyone who wants to "blog."
