Publisher's Summary

Why, oh why, did Anne Marie Whitehall take her own life, swallowing away her pain and her grief with a handful of Nembutal capsules and a bottle of Merlot? Does Samantha Jacobs, the red-haired vixen grinding away on a pole at the Revue know?

Or perhaps Deena Cook, harried mother of four and a regular visitor at Children's Services?

Or does Cierra Maldonado, mother of two children by two different men, not receiving a penny of child support and working as a cocktail waitress at a chi-chi club in downtown Cincinnati know why?

Or perhaps Lettie Robinson, a 400-pound housewife of three healthy and hungry little boys, who knows the meat display at Wal-Mart better than the inside of her own trailer.

Well, someone knows why Anne Marie Whitehall committed suicide, but she isn't talking.

And everyone wants to know who the raven-haired, glacially thin woman is: the one who's walking around the trailer park and sending secret notes to certain dear - and dearly departed - friends.

Crazy Funny Book For Sure!

This was very different than what I am used to reading. There is some crude language, some very obese women, strippers, neglecting moms, irresponsible babysitters, drug trafficking, betrayal, some mystery around an unexpected suicide, and all men are a waste of space. There are crazy moments, funny moments, bonding moments between the women that live in the same trailer park. We are familiar with the stereotypes and this audiobook brings them to reality.

The narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Anne Marie’s suicide seems to be more complex than at first glance. The story is told in multiple POV. We learn about each of them and their struggles. We are left with multiple cliffhangers. I’m planing to get the second book to see how this story concludes.

Depressing...

I had a difficult time with this book....and, now, this review. The book is interesting and well written but, where others found it amusing, I found it sad and depressing. I don’t know what else to say. It’s a good book, interesting story, great narration. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Compelling story with sad circumstances

This book is very interesting. Many reviewers have written how the book is funny, but I didn't find it so. That doesn't mean that it wasn't interesting, it was. It's just that in many ways it was sad. I cared for the characters, but their life really was not very good. Also, there were no really decent men in the book other than maybe a gay bartender.
The book was well written and the narrator did a good job, but I found it to be more of a drama than a comedy. With that as an expectation, I think that readers will be sucked into the story.

Entertaining!

Yes, the characters are the stereotypical trailer park trash but their circumstances bond them together. Not willing to succumb to a bleak existence, they never give up hope for a better tomorrow. The story is full of grit and humor as they live their lives and try to solve the mystery of Anne Marie's suicide.

Lindsey Corey gave a great performance and brought the story and characters to life. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to start the next book. A warning to listeners - cliffhanger! I would recommend Trailer Park Wives: The Single-Wide Edition.

Funny and Excellent

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Listening to this book was like watching a good indie / direct to VoD movie. It is sooo different from all the books I usually listen to. All the different characters in this book are interesting, everyone have their own quirks and funny side. They keep you entertained and keep wanting more. The POV jump from character to character keeps the story moving and introduces to different characters' lives. I feel that was a good choice since telling this story entirely from a single character's pov wouldn't have been this much fun.

Even though this is a "funny" book, the mystery surrounding the suicide does have its own gravitas. It turns out that it isn't as simple as we were thinking at the beginning.

The narration was another strong point of this book. Loved the range of voices Lindsey made for different characters and immersed us in the story.

Not what I was expecting!

I went into this listen with high expectations that this book was going to be very funny. I thought it was good not great. The story had some unexpected twists, some very likable characters and others who were not. I would probably rate the story itself at 3 1/2 stars as I just didn't connect with the ending. Part of me did not like the stereotypes of the trailer park wives. I thought the author wrote some very witty things and the narrator did a great performance. She was able to have distinguishable voices for the various characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by both the author and narrator in the future. This review is not a synopsis of the book, but my opinion of it. I do not like to give away spoilers in my review either.

I'm still in shock

An excerpt from the last chapter in this book: 'Oh it would be so nice. It would be so sweet to get a grandchild to raise before she turned 40. She would quit stripping, that was for good and sure.' That should pretty much sum up this listen.

Don't get me wrong, this book stayed true to the genre and along with the strippers, child neglect, obese women and no good men, it provided some great female bonding, happy and sad moments, and strong family dynamics. What it did not provide was the reason for Anne Marie's suicide.

I liked the narrator. This listen could have easily slipped into 'caricatureville' but Corey was really adept at making her voices unique and resonate in sync with the issues each character was facing.

I didn't hate the listen but I didn't love it enough to want to listen to book two.

An Excellent Book

***I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.***

I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. The story is interesting, funny, sad and sometimes just plain crude which I didn't mind at all. Every one of the characters were interesting, funny and have their own trials to deal with in addition to the loss of their good friend Anne Marie. It is an eye opener as to what life in a trailer park is like - we all know the stereotypes and these women humanise the stereotypes.

Lindsay Corey as a narrator was absolutely excellent. Her accents, inflections and drawls brought each and every character to life. She managed to narrate in a subtly different manner with every character and perfectly captured their individual personalities.

I highly recommend reading Trailer Park Wives.
