The Devil in the Junior League | [Linda Francis Lee]

The Devil in the Junior League

Mercedes Hildebrand Ware 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.

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

    Yes, It was funny and serious with love interest thrown in.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Couldn't choose just one......possibly the one where the housekeeper who was great...loved her character, said


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was wonderful.....little more southern drawl than most of us Texan's have but still very entertaining......did not want to put it down.....

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

    Didnt read it


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything from the protagonist's excruciatingly funny descriptions of her lifestyle and surroundings to her personal growth


    Which character – as performed by Jenna Lamia – was your favorite?

    Of course, she was terrific as Frede & Niki She was truly believable and enjoyable in whatever character she portrayed, but Nina the maid gave me pure joy.


    If you could rename The Devil in the Junior League, what would you call it?

    Would not change it


    Any additional comments?

    I never read any of this author's work before. I've downloaded the only other title you have and hope for more. I will certainly see out stories narrated by Jenna Lamia.

    "Love Love!!"
    Where does The Devil in the Junior League rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I do alot of running and listening music was getting old. This book was great to run to....only listened to it while I was running, made my runs just fly by.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole book kept my attention...loved the way Lee would describe


    What about Jenna Lamia’s performance did you like?

    Love her voice and that Southern accent.


    If you could rename The Devil in the Junior League, what would you call it?

    Leave it the same


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said, I am a runner and this was one book which made me look forward to my long runs on the weekend.

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "cheeky bit of southern chick lit"

    sometimes you want to listen to a book that is not too deep, but fun and well written. this is the author for that, and i preferred this book to her debutante book.

    "FUN!"

    Despite the inability to NOT hate the main character, I couldn't help but cheer her on. The book is downright funny and entertaining. Jenna Lamia does her usual fantastic reading performance.

    As a Texas woman though, I have to say there is no way in the world this author has ever even visited our state, let alone spent any amount of time here. The way Texas women (and even the men) were depicted was entirely asinine, but I have to admit that it added a great deal of entertainment to the book.

    "Entertaining enough"

    This book was ok. I never wanted to continue listening when it was time to get out of the car but I was interested enough to see how the story eventually worked itself out and like much chick lit it was wrapped up in a pretty little package by the end of the story.

    I will say that I enjoyed the characters take on other people's fashion, social status and her general high maintenance lifestyle and snarky attitude - she was able to do it in a way that wasn't annoying but actually funny.

    "Just OK"

    Well written chick lit book. My problem was that the main character wasn't likable....at all. The narration was great and kept me listening.
