Publisher's Weekly Review

Novelist Scottoline (After Anna, etc.) and daughter Serritella team up for the eighth in a series of entertaining mother-daughter humor books, combining entries in their "Chick Wit" column for the Philadelphia Inquirer and new material. The authors volley between Scottoline's amusing outlook on aging and Serritella's dating ups and downs. Scottoline's style is characteristically clipped and peppered with hilarious one-liners (e.g., on Brawny paper towels, "I've never relied on a paper towel to give me strength. I have chocolate for that"; "Yes, I have multiples. Not orgasms. Pets." Meanwhile, Serritella digs into topics including breaking up with boyfriends, the benefits of enjoying family Christmas without a date, and getting her first Brazilian bikini wax. This close mother-daughter team leaves no stone unturned, and their slew of animals (six dogs and a couple of cats altogether) and their beloved and outspoken deceased mother/grandmother (aka Mother Mary) are frequently referenced. This summer beach read-which is indeed "like a glass of rosé, between two covers"-is sure to cheer readers spanning the generations but will be of particular appeal to mothers and daughters.
