Summary

Take a splash of betrayal, add a few drops of outrage, give a good shake to proper behavior and take a big sip of a cocktail called…Ladies' Night!

Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday "Ladies' Night" sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?

Heartache, humor, and a little bit of mystery come together in a story about life’s unpredictable twists and turns. Mary Kay Andrews' Ladies' Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.

A Riot!

Where does Ladies' Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Highest category - I buy audio all based on the narrator - they have to be good and not grind on your nerves - this one was superior! l

What other book might you compare Ladies' Night to and why?

Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews - which was one of my favorites!

What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Love the accents - she captures each of the ladies perfectly!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Ladies Night is not for ladies!

Any additional comments?

As usual Mary Kay is a riot – Have read all her books – and love the mixture of antiquing, photography, staging, interior design, restoration, love, revenge, girls time, and romance! Another good one- overcoming tough times no matter what! (especially loved the Sarasota/Siesta Key, Florida tie in since I live in South Florida on east coast and love vacationing southwest Florida!

Hilariously funny!

I laughed out loud listeing to this book. it was quirky, funny, good narration and I just love the way the main character bounces back in a kick ass way. I love old houses, house renovations, home decor, cooking and more and also with a good romance thrown into the mix! Oh and did I mention the little dog.. I love romance, animals, food, home decor.. This book had it all.

Hopeless main character

I enjoyed this book as I have all of Mary Kay Andrews but the choices the main character made were quite ridiculous. Why would you move out of your home and just let the husband ruin her whole life surely the law would have stepped in. Do not know how he could get away with what he did nor understand how any judge would be allowed to act the way he did.

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN MARRIAGE ENDS

I actually found myself talking out loud as the story progressed. Rule number 1, don't move out of your house. Rule number two, secure your savings account immediately. Who can admire a female who admittedly left ALL financaial decisions in the hands of her husband? I found no redeeming values to the main character; and that's important to me. I want to empathize with a main character. If anything, her cheating, guileless husband showed that he was smarter than his wife. Nevertheless, I did not give up on this book. But, I would not recommend it.

Didn't enjoy this one

This book was too predictable. The weak lead character drove me crazy and I almost didn't finish it. I miss the writing of her earlier books. The narrator was good keeping the characters separate, however every women had a whiney voice and that got old quickly.

Great narration cheap plot

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think those enjoying reality shows might enjoy this. A story about a chic lady, living locked with the rich and famous. One cheating husband crushed it all. This could be chic-lit but I was exploring the plot BEFORE it happend. A very good chic-lit contains a great laughter, one too many bills and a couple you love.

I dissliked the main character and thought hard not to give in. I held my breathe and I got through it.

The narrator did a great job much better than the plot deserved.

What do you think your next listen will be?

" out of easy".

What about Kathleen McInerney’s performance did you like?

She nailed every character. Wow!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes: The news reporter rocked!

Raises Victimhood to an art form

I couldn't finish this book. the protagonist is such a victim, I just wanted to shake her and yell 'snap out of it.' I usually enjoy this author, but this story line was just too much to swallow.

Stressful gave me a headache

I made it to chapter 8 before I called it quits. I ordered this book under the “Funny” category. It’s not funny in the least. I feel violated just listening to it for this long. I imagine there’s redemption at some point but seriously nothing funny about a woman being taken advantage of.

Fun, light read

I liked the book because the story's main character Grace was someone who was funny and smart in a real way; the rest of the characters had distinct personalities and baggage. Interesting twists and turns in each person's life, just a smidgen of drama and a happy ending made it an easy, fun read.

Divorce Camp 101

Well, not exactly what I expected, I thought I was in for pure humor and levity and found that I got quite emotional in a number of the scenes.

If you have ever been through a divorce this may drug up some old memories of your own experience.

At one point, I almost stopped listening to the book, I had already determined the outcome, but there were portions of the story that were disturbing to me.
