my third husband lisa scottoline

Veteran suspense novelist Lisa Scottoline has gathered gems from the “chick wit” that she dishes out in her weekly Philadelphia Inquirer column.   These columns have been augmented with observations on life and family, most notably Mother Mary.

Scottoline has two sides:  the East Coast lawyer and the  Italian-American woman of a certain age, or as she prefers, a woman of an uncertain age.   The author’s impeccable comedic timing can be enjoyed in a wide variety of topics ranging from body parts to Internet passwords.   Lisa – her first name is a must since you really get to know her – is a writer who can turn selecting the paint color for your house into stand-up-worthy humor.

My Third Husband is packed full of genuine laughter, love, and touching wisdom.   Some book dust jackets promise side-splitting humor only to fall short; however, this book hits a grand slam.   This reader laughed so hard and often that her husband began to wonder what had possessed her.
