BOOKISH FRIDAY: “I’VE GOT SAND IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES”

Married to Books-BOOKISH LOGO

Welcome to another Bookish Friday, in which I  share excerpts from books…and connect with other bloggers, who do the same.

Let’s begin the celebration by sharing Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader; and let’s showcase The Friday 56 with Freda’s Voice.

To join in, just grab a book and share the opening lines…along with any thoughts you wish to give us; then turn to page 56 and excerpt anything on the page.

Then give us the title of the book, so others can add it to their lists!

What better way to spend a Friday!

Today’s feature is a collection of stories by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella, I’ve Got Sand in All the Wrong Places.

Beginning:  (Lisa)

Who doesn’t love summer?

It is our reward for three seasons of going full speed, twenty-four/seven, in a world that is too complex and way too fast.

We all need a break, especially mothers.

56:  These new friends reminded me that sometimes you have to quit to create who you really are.  Sometimes the parameters someone else sets for you aren’t the ones to build your life upon.  Life’s a gamble; make sure you’re risking it all for the right reward.

Synopsis:  Lisa and Francesca are back with another collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman. This six 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 seventh volume will not disappoint as it hits the humorous and poignant note that fans have come to expect from the beloved mother-daughter duo.

What do you think?  Would you love a good laugh and pick up this book?

    1. Scottoline’s story-telling is of the anecdotal type, and she loves to share experiences, from embarrassing ones to warm and cozy ones. Reading her “stories” feels like having a chat with her. Thanks for stopping by, Bev.

  1. I’ve never read anything by either author – it does sound like it could be lots of fun and the title made me think of the “beach vollyball” uniforms that the female Olympians wore (which I thought were ridiculous) and how they probably got sand in all the wrong places – lol – thanks for visiting my Friday meme earlier
