Publisher's Summary

In part two of Trailer Park Wives, the double-wide edition, answers arrive at the same time that new questions emerge. Samantha Jacobs, who's still busy in Hazard, selling OxyContin, gets worried when Dwayne takes off on his own. What she finds when she goes looking for him sends her on a new kind of journey.

Back home, Deena is giving the performance of her lifetime as mother-of-the-year while the caseworkers watch and judge her from the other side of the one-way mirror. Lettie begins to learn more than she ever wanted to about Joe's secrets, and Cierra, well, she gets an unexpected visitor to the Club, and what's a girl to do when things end badly?

By the time the wives find out how - and why - Anne Marie ended her life, they've learned a whole lot of other things about their dear friend...secrets become known, and they long for the days when Anne Marie, their dear friend, was still above ground and living life with them in the grimmest trailer park in Ohio.

The train just keeps wrecking

Double Wide is the continuation of Single Wide. Happy to see that we get resolution of all the loose ends from the first story and finally learn about Anne Marie’s death. I have to say that I really enjoy the characters more than the plot itself. The daily lives of the women are far more interesting than Anne Marie’s death. While we get resolution, the wives continue to have problems that don’t go away and some escalate, leading to another chapter. While we learn about Anne Marie’s death, the mystery and reasoning seemed to be less important than the fact that it happened. Wanted a bit more from that piece but was to wrapped up in the lives of Samantha and Lettie to really care.
Have to say Samantha’s story is my favorite. She is sneaky, sexy, and very dangerous. Her story is the most provocative and glad she took the spotlight. I hate her as much as I love her and was really happy that her story was the biggest part. Her story really twists and turns while everyone else’s seems somewhat stagnant. Her problems just snowball throughout this and I love hearing how she wiggles free from them. I enjoyed Lettie’s story as well, but it seemed like she was there more to solve the mystery than to really resolve her actual problems. Even with some of the characters taking a backseat, I have become invested and I’m ready to move into the park just to hang out with them. I know this is in the comedy section, but this is a dark drama that is complete with foul language, indecent situations, and lots of fun. I really want to go bowling with these gals.
I have to admit I preferred the first book more. I really liked the buildup of the characters it had and while this moved the plot forward, it wasn’t as exciting. Don't get me wrong, I loved every minute of it. I felt like the resolution to the death of Anne Marie was just a side note and while it answered the mail, it just didn’t move me. I’m happy that this ends with an opening for a next chapter. I looked at the author’s website just to make sure that there is more coming and excited that there are at least two more. I am totally the old woman with the binoculars looking at this group behind a closed door.
As before the narrator did a fantastic job. I think her voice is perfect for this and am glad she continues to be the narrator. Hope she continues for the next two.

Guilty Pleasure

This series is like an impending train wreck that you can't stop watching and I mean that in the best possible way. You know that something tragic and horrible and messy it about to happen, yet you simply can't avert your eyes. Over and over, I've thought that there was something just terribly, terribly wrong with these people. Then why can't I stop listening? If loving them is wrong, I don't want to be right! Every time that I thought the Batesville Trailer Park residents (including that creepy Jigger dude) couldn't possibly get into more trouble or surprise me, I was smacked upside the head with another shocker. This deliciously addictive series is my newest guilty pleasure.

Double-Wide was even better than the first book in the series. The story really takes off in this edition and it's one crazy situation after another. The sordid details of Anne Marie's past are finally revealed, as well as the identity and motives of the blackmailer. Sierra is a character that I still can't quite figure out. If I were a struggling single mother, I would want my sugar daddy forking over cold, hard cash - not designer purses, I mean handbags. And am I the only one that was blown away by Lettie's reaction to confronting her husband's mistress? Hang on tight because things are about to really heat up - literally! Oh my, the madness of it all!

Lindsey Corey's performance as narrator was terrific once again and I could easily distinguish the main characters. This was a great listening experience and I would recommend Trailer Park Wives: The Double-Wide Edition - Bigger, Better, Wider.

Even better than Single Wide - Book 1

This is not my usual book. I don’t usually do suspenseful mystery thrillers but I’m so glad I decided to make an exception. Book one was good but I like this one is even better. You need to start with book one to understand better what is going on in this book. The author provided much needed information to understand Anne Marie’s troubled life and actions.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

There are some outrageous moments, crazy decisions, and laugh out loud moments in this book. The author did a great job portraying the characters so realistic and the story totally sucked me in. I really enjoyed how the characters have grown and developed. Specially Lettie, I’m looking forward to seeing her turn her life around for the best.

There are multiple POV and different stories going on at the same time. But the main women are friends and get together once a week to catch up. The story concludes in a bit of a cliffhanger but many unresolved issues from book 1 are wrapped up well. I’m looking forward to the next book in this unique series!

DOUBLE THE PLEASURE WITH DOUBLE-WIDE TRAILER PARK!

This is a continuation of Denise's first installment in the series, Trailer Park Wives: Single-Wide Edition. Loved it as much as the first one! We delve back into the lives of our "trailer ladies," and ties up some stuff left hanging from the prior book. I love reading about their problems, up & downs, and all the great and tacky drama that goes along with it. One of my guilty pleasures are those dumb reality shows like "Marriage Boot Camp" and "Big Brother" so I love following the lives of these trailer park chicks :) It's a fun and entertaining read, and I would definitely recommend it :)
I hope there are more audiobook installments to come! :)

surprisingly good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, I didn't listen to the first book, but that didn't seem to be an issue for me. The book had a surprisingly good story and wasn't just a book of sex scenese as I expected going in. The narration is fantastic and made for a very entertaining listen.

Trailer Park Drama

Every character in this story is in some kind of hot mess. Some of the time they are legitimately trying to clean up the mess, but other times they just keep digging themselves deeper into trouble.

There is something oddly compelling about the gritty snippets of life experienced by Samantha, Deena, Cierra and Lettie. You genuinely want them to find their way to a better place...but they have so, so far to go.

If you like raw, keeping it real stories, check out this book. If you prefer more of an escape from your own daily dramas, you might want to pass.

The narrator did a decent job portraying the characters.

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

Dark quirky story continued

This series is sort of the anti-Sex in the City. The narrator even sounds like the television Samantha when she reads the character of Samantha in the book.
This book continued the story from the first book, but was much stronger. The first book was well written, but seemed to be a set up for this to continue. I hope that the third book is released on audio. I would like to see what happens next with these characters.

Side note - I enjoyed the easter egg of a famous author and one of his characters as FBI agents.

Trailer Park Antics

What a hoot! This is not a book I would necessarily read, however it was given to me free of charge by the author for an unbiased review. The book is part two in a series and the end leaves you in the story "with more to come". I did not read the first book, but it is not necessary to enjoy the second book. Infidelity, meth cooking, oxy, single mothers, and murder are all included in this crazy story.If you enjoy "Housewives of ...." you may be a candidate to listen to this book. The narration is good.

Oh man, that's some knife you've got there.

Continuing directly from the Single Wide edition, Trailer Park Wives, Double Wide continues to follow the lives of the four friends after the unexpected suicide of Ann Marie, the only one of their little group who had seemed to have everything.

There is really very little story at all, other than the incidents, longings and sorrows which daily occur individually to the group during the weeks following the funeral. But as their lives slowly evolve, the question which emerged ever louder in the first part of the story, why did the happy, the lucky one of their original group, kill herself, begins to unravel and we finally discover her secret.

Mostly well written, the dialogue is good and the friends emerge as very real people. Their situations are not necessarily pleasant, one is a sex worker, one works in a Bunny bar, all are parents and some described scenes tend towards the lurid. But there is also an empathy built between each one and the reader. The narration by Lindsey Covey is excellent. Her voice is pleasant, an easy listen, and she reads with good pace and intonation, giving all of the protagonists clear and appropriate definition increasing the reality of each one.

There is a fascination in watching these very different friends as they cope as best they can in the rather seedy, run down trailer park and this reader will certainly be looking out for book three.
