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.

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."
Normally enjoy MKA's books, this one was disappointing. I found myself not liking really any of the characters. Both Grace and Wyatt seemed helpless and naïve. I normally really like how MKA's characters are strong and really fight their way back to the top.
I think I have either read or listened to all of Mary Kay's books and the storyline is exactly what I like to read/listen to. She always has a sense of humor and it able to keep me interested by throwing a few little events I wasn't expecting.
At the beginning when the car ends up in the pool.
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.
This is the first audiobook I've listened to and I was very pleased! I can't wait to download my next one.
I would compare this to books by Jennifer Weiner. Its a great "Chick Lit" novel. Its got romance and tales of a modern woman.
No. I thought she was great, though.
