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?

    Story
    "Man I thought my divorce was the worst!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book, I admit, got off to a rough start and I had to grit my teeth. My own divorce was fodder for Jerry Springer-but that's judges in Montgomery County, alabummer for you-future advice-do not get a divorce there!. I always loved Mary Kay Andrews' style and this book is no exception. Keep 'em coming so I can keep smiling!


    What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She helped bring out the characters in a way I doubt I would have imagined it!


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

    Had I had more than 24 hours, yes I would have gone thru it in one setting- an excellent book to listen to during long road trips.

    "A Riot!"
    Where does Ladies' Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Highest category - I buy audio all based on the narrator - they have to be good and not grind on your nerves - this one was superior! l


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

    Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews - which was one of my favorites!


    What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love the accents - she captures each of the ladies perfectly!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ladies Night is not for ladies!


    Any additional comments?

    As usual Mary Kay is a riot – Have read all her books – and love the mixture of antiquing, photography, staging, interior design, restoration, love, revenge, girls time, and romance! Another good one- overcoming tough times no matter what! (especially loved the Sarasota/Siesta Key, Florida tie in since I live in South Florida on east coast and love vacationing southwest Florida!

    Story
    "Great narration cheap plot"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think those enjoying reality shows might enjoy this. A story about a chic lady, living locked with the rich and famous. One cheating husband crushed it all. This could be chic-lit but I was exploring the plot BEFORE it happend. A very good chic-lit contains a great laughter, one too many bills and a couple you love.

    I dissliked the main character and thought hard not to give in. I held my breathe and I got through it.

    The narrator did a great job much better than the plot deserved.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    " out of easy".


    What about Kathleen McInerney’s performance did you like?

    She nailed every character. Wow!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes: The news reporter rocked!

    Story
    "WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN MARRIAGE ENDS"

    I actually found myself talking out loud as the story progressed. Rule number 1, don't move out of your house. Rule number two, secure your savings account immediately. Who can admire a female who admittedly left ALL financaial decisions in the hands of her husband? I found no redeeming values to the main character; and that's important to me. I want to empathize with a main character. If anything, her cheating, guileless husband showed that he was smarter than his wife. Nevertheless, I did not give up on this book. But, I would not recommend it.

    "Didn't enjoy this one"

    This book was too predictable. The weak lead character drove me crazy and I almost didn't finish it. I miss the writing of her earlier books. The narrator was good keeping the characters separate, however every women had a whiney voice and that got old quickly.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ladies' Night?

    the bra on the BBQ maybe?


    What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the voices of the different ladies in the group

    "Hopeless main character"

    I enjoyed this book as I have all of Mary Kay Andrews but the choices the main character made were quite ridiculous. Why would you move out of your home and just let the husband ruin her whole life surely the law would have stepped in. Do not know how he could get away with what he did nor understand how any judge would be allowed to act the way he did.

    "Hilariously funny!"

    I laughed out loud listeing to this book. it was quirky, funny, good narration and I just love the way the main character bounces back in a kick ass way. I love old houses, house renovations, home decor, cooking and more and also with a good romance thrown into the mix! Oh and did I mention the little dog.. I love romance, animals, food, home decor.. This book had it all.

    Story
    "Annoying main character"
    What did you like best about Ladies' Night? What did you like least?

    I was looking for a light and frothy listen, and I did get that. However most of the plot happened as a result of our heroine making really stupid choices. Yes, a truly jerky ex-husband done her wrong, but she didn't help anything. Plus she continued to make stupid choices. If it had been a book I would have skimmed quickly to the end. As it was it was just good enough to have me finish listening to the end. Just barely.

    Also the our heroine seemed to switch back and forth between competent and clueless and charming and whiny.

    I did like the whole lifestyle blog thread in the book.


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

    The reader probably did fine. I found some of the voices annoying, but that could have been just because I found some of the characters annoying.

    "Entertaining.. Predictable but entertaining"
    What did you love best about Ladies' Night?

    I enjoyed the character development and the length of the book... not too long and not too short.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Chick Flick for Sure
