From the best-selling mother/daughter writing duo comes another hilarious collection of essays about motherhood, daughterhood, womanhood, and "does this hood look good on me?"
Love and tomato sauce are thick in the Scottoline/Serritella household, and Lisa and Francesca’s mother-daughter-turned-best-friends bond will strike a familiar note to many. But now that Lisa is a suburban empty-nester and Francesca is an independent 20-something in the big city, they have to learn how to stay close while living apart. How does a mother’s love translate across state lines and over any semblance of personal boundaries?
You’ll laugh out loud as they face off over the proper technique for packing dishes, the importance of bringing a coat in the summertime, and the do's and don’ts of dating at any age. Add feisty octogenarian Mother Mary to the mix, and you have a Molotov cocktail of estrogen, opinions, and fun.
Booklist raved that Best Friends, Occasional Enemies was "one big gabfest with your best girlfriends, whatever their age," and now, in Meet Me at the Emotional Baggage Claim, the mother-daughter duo of Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella continue the conversation with more hilarious and honest tales of life inside an ordinary, extraordinary family. These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.
I really enjoyed this Mother-Daughter tag team narration of all their hilarious stories! I would recommend this to any woman looking for an easy laugh and listen, especially if you liked "Bossypants" by Tina Fey.
I really loved how the mother and daughter aren't stereotypical females. They enjoy life, work hard and love, but they are not overly girly females. This is something I can relate to. Even though they are not "girly", they still love each other and support each other and it really comes through in their stories.

I laughed, I cried. When an audiobook can inspire the whole gamut of human emotions then I'm satisfied. I was very glad that the authors took the time to read their own stories.
I wish my daughter and I had been clever enough to have written this book ourselves. We have similar stories and we similarly lean on each other and are each other's best friend. In other words, I could relate to these short stories easily, laughing with authors, laughing at the authors, laughing at myself because everything could have been me or my daughter, and definitely feeling the same pangs of shame, guilt, or sadness that the authors also wonderfully conveyed.
A sure bet.
