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.

    "Fun and funny but not too predictable"

    This is a great light read, humorous and not as predictable as many books in this genre. I enjoyed it.

    Story
    "Could Not Get Past the First Two Hours"

    Jenna Lamia, who did an absolutely brilliant job reading "The Help," here does an annoying to the point of nauseating interpretation of a Texas belle. Frede, the main character, cannot believe that her hitherto unimpeachable standing in her Junior League social circle is threatened by her husband's defection. Over and again Frede says something to the effect of 'surely my previous reputation will carry me through, it's me, Frede Ware.' Perhaps the fault is also with the writing but Lamia's reading was a deal-breaker for me.

    "Save your money!"
    What disappointed you about The Devil in the Junior League?

    This entire book read like an episode of Scooby Doo...trite, hokey, predictable, and tedious to anyone past the age of 12. Save your money and watch anything on The Disney Channel instead.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Francis Lee again?

    No.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was great...except when she slide from her Southern accent (albeit very good) into a British accent.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. Why, based on my purchase history, would this be recommended for me?


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to get a refund. Sincerely.

    "Jenna Lamia was the best part of this book."
    Where does The Devil in the Junior League rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say this book just kind of ended up in the middle. It was fun but I wasn't dying to listen to it.


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

    I would read another book by this author just because it was at least humorous and an easy book to listen to.


    Have you listened to any of Jenna Lamia’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had not listened to Jenna Lamia before but her performance on this book lead me to purchase another one of her's.

    Story
    "Light, Fun Chick-Fiction"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I was looking for something brainless and light. And this book fits the bill.


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

    Probably not... because I really hated the ending of this particular book.


    What about Jenna Lamia’s performance did you like?

    I chose this book because of Jenna Lamia. I like her voice and her acting.


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

    It could definitely use a follow-up to explain away the ridiculous ending.

    Story
    "Such an Entertaining Read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I will be recommending this book to all of my friends that love a good book. At first I thought The Devil in the Junior League might be a bit silly and that I might not like Frede, the main character, but as the book went on, I loved the humor and the twists and turns.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil in the Junior League?

    I was surprised when poor Frede found out that her beloved husband, Gordon, had a vasectomy before they were ever married. In addition, all of his affairs, when they came to light were pretty humorous as well since it incites good revenge from Frede.


    What does Jenna Lamia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved her southern accent. It gave depth to Frede that she might not have otherwise.


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

    I just loved all the humor. It was such an enjoyable story.

    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!
