Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The unstoppable, irreverent mother-daughter team presents a new collection of funny stories and true confessions that every woman can relate to. From identity theft to the hazards of bicycling to college reunions and eating on the beach, Lisa and Francesca tackle the quirks, absurdities, and wonders of everyday life with wit and warmth. As Lisa says, "More and more, especially in the summertime when I'm sitting on the beach, I'm learning not to sweat it. To go back to the child that I used to be. To see myself through the loving eyes of my parents. To eat on the beach. And not to worry about whether every little thing makes me look fat. In fact, not to worry at all." So put aside your worries and join Lisa and Francesca as they navigate their way through the crazy world we live in, laughing along the way"-- Provided by publisher.
"Lisa and Francesca are back with another collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman. This five book series is among the best reviewed humor books published today and has been compared to the late greats, Erma Bombeck and Nora Ephron. Delia Ephron said of the fifth book in the series, Have a Nice Guilt Trip, "Lisa and Francesca, mother and daughter, bring you the laughter of their lives once again and better than ever. You will identify with these tales of guilt and fall in love with them and fierce (grand)Mother Mary." This sixth volume will not disappoint as it hits the humorous and poignant note that fans have come to expect from the beloved mother-daughter duo"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 June #1
    The mother-daughter team of best-selling crime writer Scottoline and her writer daughter, Francesca, follow Have a Nice Guilt Trip (2014) with another collection of humorous essays. This time, Lisa riffs on fleas, DNA testing, first-world problems, weight, rescue by a white knight on a bicycle, celebrities (particularly Bradley Cooper), fear of flying, and of course, dogs. Francesca counters with a fantasy league for The Bachelor, Myers-Briggs personality tests, college reunions, dating (including the mutual fade-out), singing Gilbert and Sullivan, gym memberships, diving off cliffs, and driving sports cars. Hovering over this laugh-out-loud compilation is the specter of Lisa's mom, "Mother Mary," and her fight with lung cancer. With her characteristic laugh and "who needs it?" quips, Mother Mary remains feisty to the end, and Scottoline and Serritella's grief and remembrance make for a poignant collection. The coauthors of the Philadelphia Inquirer's "Chick Lit" column know women and aren't afraid to laugh at themselves. Their keen observations and fresh twist on life's challenges make this the perfect book to pass from mother to daughter. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
