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.

    Absolutely - easy listen, fun story, and the narrator is so great to listen to.

    A lot of the characters reminded me of those in The Help.

    Everything! She is a fantastic narrator and really brings the characters to life.

    "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.

    "A light summer book..."

    This was an easy listen, done by Jenna Lamia [secret life of bees] who I find soothing to listen to. The book had a bit more storyline than I had initially thought. You'll not be any closer to "self actualization" after this book but amused, relaxed and entertained.... likely.

    "Good story - GREAT narration!"

    The performance of the narrator really outshines the story itself. I believe that while reading a print version of this book would be rather boring, narrator Jenna Lamia really makes this story come alive and I truly enjoyed listening to this audio book.

    "Great Fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil in the Junior League to be better than the print version?

    I'm neutral about this one. I did greatly enjoy this audio version but can't say if I would have liked it better in print. The narration was good but not phenomenal. For me, reading it would have been just as good.


    What other book might you compare The Devil in the Junior League to and why?

    I got this book after I finished ???Emily and Einstein???, Lee???s first book. I had high expectations but I almost bagged on this book around chapter 3. I keep listening because I just didn???t have any other new books in my library at the time. I am glad I did for it quickly turned into a very interesting story. Where E & E had a bang start this book started slow but I can???t say it should have been done any differently.


    What does Jenna Lamia bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The Narration was good, like I said before. Her character voices were well defined. Not any easy job with the various Texas accents to portray. This is my first Jenna Lamia novel and I will listen to others by her. She is just not in my top 10 list of great narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    I eagerly await another Linda Francis Lee novel.

    "Fluffy story but HILARIOUS writing!"

    This is your typical fluffy chick lit book, but my expectations were blown by how funny the writing is! I literally laughed out loud throughout the entire story. The narrator nails the Southern accent and the author's tongue in cheek humor perfectly. Overall it was a totally enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "I hated it, then I laughed..."

    I really hated the main character Fredi, and almost gave up on this book. But about 2 hours into it, I started to laugh and after that the rest is history. I really enjoyed this book. Yes, the main character is a snob. Yes, she is spoiled. Yes she is clueless and self centered and all the characteristics most people hate in a person. And well, because I'm a little evil, I really enjoyed it when her life began to fall apart. And as her life is spiraling out of control she still maintains her Junior League, lady in beige, keep all your emotions tucked in tight decorum. Because she is so uptight and ridiculous and the story is funny. Jenna Lamia, the same narrator from The Help is so awesome int his book. I love her voice and she gives Fredi, the female protagonist dimension and humanity. This is a feel good story. Fun, light and entertaining. I highly recommend.
