Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline's first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her--now she's back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She's farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed--ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa's finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same--Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who won't part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra.


In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets--which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion.


Inspired by her weekly column entitled, "Chick Wit" for The Philadelphia Inquirer,this is a book you'll have to put down--just to stop laughing.

Review:

"Scottoline stirs up even more sassy fun--this time bringing her daughter, Francesca, into the mix as co-writer. A clever compilation from two generations of women reflecting on family, love, dessert, and everything in between."--"Booklist"

"Essays that are by turns rueful, uplifting, sweet, kooky--and always amusing. A funny, uplifting read for women of any generation."--"Publishers Weekly"

"Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca have proven themselves to be naturals at both writing and narrating humorous essay. They deliver the themes of love, strength, and family connectedness in a delightfully witty fashion. The overall feel is of a conversation with friends whose accounts of zany relatives and situations may be unique in detail but are recognizable for anyone with a family. The appeal is universal."--"AudioFile"

"I've found the perfect daily picker-upper -- a chapter or two from My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space. Scottoline writes about whatever crosses her path but has also allowed readers a peek into her own family life. Francesca's voice is entirely her own, but she shares Lisa's ability to turn borderline TMI into memorable humor and insights. The result is one of the best double acts in the business."--Joe Meyers, "Connecticut"" Post"
