Publisher's Summary

The morning of her niece's wedding, Margo Just drinks a double martini and contemplates the many mistakes she's made in her fifty-odd years of life. Spending three decades in love with a wonderful but unattainable man is pretty high up on her list of missteps, as is a long line of unsuccessful love affairs accompanied by a seemingly endless supply of delicious cocktails.

When the young bride flees - taking with her a family heirloom and leaving behind six hundred bewildered guests - her mother offers Margo fifty grand to retrieve her spoiled brat of a daughter and the invaluable property she stole. So, together with the bride's jilted and justifiably crabby fiancé, Margo sets out in a borrowed 1955 red MG on a cross-country chase. Along the way, none of what she discovers will be quite what she expected. But it might be exactly what she's been seeking all along.

From acclaimed humor writer Jane Lotter comes this madcap, laugh-out-loud adventure, The Bette Davis Club.

    "Great holiday read"

    Excellent fun with thoughtful insights. You need to suspend belief a little with the storyline; a bit cliché and completely improbable. Well read and easy listening with a happy ending.

    "My 1st Audiobook!"

    This was my very first full audiobook! I really have nothing to compare it to except excerpts from stories and essays, so I don't know if the narrator's performance was "out of this world" or not, but I did enjoy it! I really liked the narrator's inflection throughout, as well as her accent because it helped me get to know the characters better than if she were to speak without any emotion at all. She did great playing all the characters...even the men. :-) The storyline headed in a little bit of a different direction than I expected, but the ending made it all worth it, even though it was pretty predictable. I am happy I chose this book and would recommend it to others (mainly women) who enjoy a "not-so-serious" read about adventure, love, and the crazy things we go through with our families! :-)

    "Good yarn"

    I enjoyed this story - it was quirky and really well written. It's a pity this was her only novel.

    "Fun story, kept me engaged"

    This was a fun sorry that I enjoyed listening to. It was a little far fetched and well edited so the pieces fit. The characters were lively and kept me engaged.
