Publisher's Summary

The Junior League of Willow Creek, Texas, is très exclusive. Undesirables need not apply. Fredericka Mercedes Hildebrand Ware (Frede to her friends) is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would prefer to keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge - Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood. But there's a price: She has to get his tacky, four-inch-stiletto-and-pink-spandex-wearing wife, Nikki, into the Junior League.

The crème de la crème of Southern royalty should sit up and take notice, and hang on tight for this irresistible tale of getting in and getting even.

    Story
    "Not the best Linda Francis Lee book"
    What did you like best about The Devil in the Junior League? What did you like least?

    I liked the novel was based in Texas and was faithful to how things are there. I did not like the main character. It was very hard to feel very sorry for her since she was so sure she was wonderful and beautiful and evidently without a clue.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt that it was a cop out - an easy answer that left everything up in the air.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jenna Lamia?

    Yes - her voice seemed a mix of southern and texan, but still clear and understandable.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "great listen"
    Would you listen to The Devil in the Junior League again? Why?

    Yes I would it was great I love Jenna Lamia. The story was so funny, not what I expected at all.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't say I had one I loved the book as a whole.


    What about Jenna Lamia’s performance did you like?

    Everything I could listen to Jenna read the phone book as long as she used her southern accent.


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

    Not especially.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had me laughing out loud I didn't want it to end. I have to admit I only found this book after listening to The Help and searching for more read by Jenna. I am so glad I did because I never would have found it otherwise and I loved this.

    "Another great performance by Jenna Lamia"

    This story was a hoot. I was laughing out loud at several of the escapades in this book. I thought it had a great ending. I just wish there was a sequel to continue the great fun of the story!

    This is a very entertaining, light read. The characters were enjoyable and the Southern customs were a kick. Very satisfying over all.

    Story
    "Y'all are a bit too tiring"
    Would you try another book from Linda Francis Lee and/or Jenna Lamia?

    Jenna Lamia's southern accent was appropriate and easy to listen to.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Linda Francis Lee? Why or why not?

    I think I would pass on another book by this author.


    Do you think The Devil in the Junior League needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Heavens no, let's not see a follow up.


    Any additional comments?

    The first part of this story was good, but as time went on...the story didn't. The story was like listening to a song where the chorus goes on and on. It was fun to listen to the first time or two or even three but then, you've heard enough and want a different verse.

    "Fun!"

    This is not "The Help" and don't confuse it.. but what it IS is FUN, light and a pleasurable listen. If you've spent anytime in the south you will enjoy many references that may not mean anything to Northeners... It moved at a fast clip and was suitable for listening to in "chunks" of time... entertaining read.

    "Fabulously entertaining"

    Obviously this is not War and Peace, but if you are looking for a few light-hearted hours or some good distraction in stressful waiting rooms or while traveling, this is perfect. The characters are well drawn, and the performance is delightful. I gave it five stars within its genre. Amusing without being dumb. This one is worth its credit.
