Trashy-romance writer Gerri has it all - an overbearing family, a dead-end job, and no man but a ton of pressure to get married and have kids. Frustrated and hopeless that things will ever change, she decides it’s time to transition from “tragic loser” to “tragic loss”. Armed with a shoebox full of sleeping pills and a big bottle of vodka, she’s ready to end it all. First, she writes “honest” farewell notes to everyone she knows…However, her big exit becomes her latest failure, and now she must face all those she’s offended with her “final” words. Is it possible to get along with people once they know what you really think of them? Gerri’s going to have to find a way to make things right with everyone…or die trying.

I loved this book from the get go! it was funny, yet sad, tht a family can (unknowingly?) treat a family member like this. But, I loved all the characters in this story! The dialogue was great! And of course the narrator was AMAZING as always ;)
This one turned out to be better that I thought--glad I listened. Very controlling mother in this one, but the main characters get past it--thank goodness.. I was drawn to it by the narrator. She has become one of my favorite.
Yes, I will look for other books by this author and most definitely when JW is the narrator. As a matter of fact, I just purchased another book with JW narrating.
