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.

What Just Happened

I had the pleasure of listening to book 1 and feel as though you need to have book 1, in order to fully understand the character in book 2. Book 2 answers the question about AnnMarie's death and why she did it, but there was so many other avenues that this book went down, such as Dwayne's death, and one moment is a Red Corvette and the next it was a red mustang. I must have overlooked something in the book, so maybe it was just me, but I feel like there good have been several avenues (or more in depth stories, within the story) vs a little bit here and a little bit there. Not bad though and I feel based on the ending that there will be another book to come, so maybe it will help to answer the lose ends for me.

Not my kind of story

Sorry, but this is not my kind of story. I can do without a guy who describes an envelop color as "robin egg blue", come on, a guy would say blue. And what's with Bob Barker?? Sorry, but I'm not a fan of the Trailer Park Wives.

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 Wide!

This book picks up where Trailer Park Wives: Single Wide leaves off, but also ends in a cliffhanger; so I dont really think it would be a good standalone. I've been really intrigued by these characters and their individual stories. It is a lot like Sex and the City where we get a glimpse at one character's current situation and then switch points of view to another and so forth. Each wife is different and they are all relatable in some way. The wives are still trying to piece together what happened to their friend to make her commit suicide; I really enjoy the aspect of mystery this brings to the book. I am really enjoying this writer's style.

This narrator does a fantastic job bringing out all of the differences in each of the wives in their individual personalities. Her narration is consistent with the first book and is clear throughout. Loved the narration.

I'm super excited to see what happens next!

Not my genre

Can't really say whether this was really good or not, but that's mainly due to this book not being in my wheel house. I listened, but could not get into it.

what a story!

this book has been given to me free in exchange of my unbiased review.

loved this book. very intriguing story line and the narrator has done a wonderful job.
you don't have to read or listen to the Single Wide book which is suppose to be the prequel to this book. the book holds on its own as a stand alone book. the characters are colourful.

GOOD READ!

I preferred book one .

I was gifted this audio book at my request free of charge & in return I offer my honest unbiased review . I love the first book far more than this book , I'm not sure why but for some reason that I can't put my finger on this book just didn't do it for me . I think the cover misled me . I saw the big shapely sexy spanner & I thought there was going to be more emphasis on mechanical things . I guess I should have know it wasn't about mechanics when the woman on the cover wasn't wearing coveralls . I couldn't get into this story but I found the narrator was excellent .

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.
