Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella are back with another collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman. This series is among the best reviewed humor books published today and has been compared to the late greats, Erma Bombeck and Nora Ephron. Booklist raved of the third book in the series, Meet Me At Emotional Baggage Claim,  “readers can count on an ab-toning laugh session, a silly giggle, a sympathetic sigh, and a lump in the throat as lifes moments are rehashed through the keen eyes and wits of this lovable mother-daughter duo.” This volume, Have a Nice Guilt Trip, maintains the same sterling standard of humor and poignancy as Lisa and Francesca continue on the road of life acquiring men and puppies. Ok, to be honest, Lisa is acquiring the puppies, while Francesca is lucky enough to have dates with actual men. They leave it to the listeners to decide which is more desirable and/or or easier to train.

Review:

"Popular mystery writer Scottoline and her Philadelphia Inquirer columnist daughter Serritella team up for the fourth time to offer a lively collection of 80 short essays on everything from raising puppies to the proper way to make eggplant parm. Though Scottoline penned the majority of the essays in this volume, 27-year-old Serritella's contributions display her own brand of humor and sweetness. Scottoline — prone to comedic one-liners — makes the pages fly by in a flurry of laughs. Serritella's ode to her 90-year-old grandmother (affectionately referred to as Mother Mary) and her writings about her dog Pip are especially endearing. Scottoline is on-target and hilarious, whether she's writing about politics (her piece on Anthony Weiner is a standout), ex-husbands ('Thing One and Thing Two'), or what it's like to sleep with five dogs. While Serritella deals with dating, rollerblading, and Facebook, Scottoline, whose 'butt is already on social security,' considers joining AARP. Their close-knit, outspoken Italian family is also the subject of a number of laugh-inducing selections. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Everyones favorite mother-daughter writing duo is back with a new collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman. With twenty-something Francesca navigating New York City, Lisa holding down the fort in the suburbs, and Mother Mary making frequent and always entertaining appearances, there are plenty of opportunities for family-induced guilt, fighting, laughter, and love. As Lisa says, "Bottom line, if youre a mom, youll feel guilty all the time, and this is true because youre a daughter as well, and God only knows how many times you failed your poor mother." So come along for the ride as Lisa and Francesca continue on the road of life acquiring men and puppies…Ok, to be honest, Lisa is acquiring the puppies, while Francesca is lucky enough to have dates with actual men. Theyll leave it to readers to decide which is more desirable and/or or easier to train.
