    Lisa and Francesca are at it again!

    I have to admit that I squealed when I won an advanced reader’s copy of I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses (The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman #9) by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella. I have read all their previous books, follow them both on social media, look forward every Sunday to their column and always pre-order Lisa’s books. So to get this book early was a real treat. True stories and confessions – exactly. Lisa Scottoline isn’t afraid to say anything, and luckily for us Francesca Serritella grew up to be just like her. Reading these stories is just like talking to your mother or your aunt or your sister – or yourself. Things you barely think to yourself because they are too embarrassing are written down. And it’s just like they were inside your head when they wrote it. I started out keeping track of my favorite essays, but then I realized I was basically recapping the entire book. Some of these stories are so funny you will laugh out loud (while maybe wincing and thinking “Do I do that??”), and some will make you cry, and some will make you stop and think yep, just like that. These stories describe real life and all it’s funny, unexpected, unpredictable moments to treasure. For those of us who are also wild and crazy pet lovers the stories about the rest of the family – those (many) dogs, cats, horses, chickens – are heartwarming and read oh, so true. Do not miss the story ‘Francesca Serritella, Attorney at Paw.’ The love and special bond between this mother and daughter is so strong it comes through everything they write and say, but you can also get a sense of the almost-visible eyerolls over something the other has said or the almost-hidden impatience when something has to be repeated . . . and repeated and repeated. It is such a joy to see them facing their fears, traveling together, doing something special for the other - or correcting the other. I recommend that if you haven’t yet read all the books by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella you do so right now. And you must listen to at least one of the books in audio form, because then their voices will be forever in your head and you’ll enjoy the stories even more. Follow them on line during their book tour and watch the live FB event – it doesn’t always go off without a hitch but it is such fun to watch and captures their personalities perfectly. Thanks to Goodreads and NetGalley for providing an ARC of I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses. It’s a keeper and a book to read over and over.

    Funny yet serious

    Love these ladies!Lisa Scottoline and her adult daughter Francesca Serritella reveal their year of mother-daughter, real life moments in this latest in their series and it is all good clean fun with a touch of sadness as the situation warrants. This is a book to savor, though you want to rush through to see what they have come up with next. From make-up to dogs, colonoscopy kits to carb consumption, each 'tale' brings a smile or a tear. I love the reminiscing of Philadelphia-based Lisa and the young single NYC life of Francesca. Now I have to wait until I can buy this in audio book - they do the audio books themselves! I will be listening with the AC on and tears of laughter running down my face.
