Everyone’s favorite mother-daughter writing duo is back with a new collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman.

With twenty-something Francesca navigating New York City, Lisa holding down the fort in the suburbs, and Mother Mary making frequent and always entertaining appearances, there are plenty of opportunities for family-induced guilt, fighting, laughter, and love. As Lisa says, “Bottom line, if you’re a mom, you’ll feel guilty all the time, and this is true because you’re a daughter as well, and God only knows how many times you failed your poor mother.”

So come along for the ride as Lisa and Francesca continue on the road of life acquiring men and puppies … Ok, to be honest, Lisa is acquiring the puppies, while Francesca is lucky enough to have dates with actual men. They’ll leave it to listeners to decide which is more desirable and/or easier to train.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lisa and Francesca, mother and daughter, bring you the laughter of their lives once again and better than ever. You will identify with these tales of guilt and fall in love with them and fierce (grand)Mother Mary.”

    Delia Ephron, New York Times bestselling author of Sister Mother Husband Dog

  • “The laughter, tears, taunts, and—fine, we’ll admit it—occasional pearls of motherly wisdom all are part of the package.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine

  • “Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca don’t just have some of the best titles, they also have some of the best books. For five years, the Edgar Award-winning novelist mom and her Harvard grad daughter have shared ‘Chick Wit’ columns and bylines in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Their pieces, sometimes poignant and often playful, remind us that growing up and growing older are ultimately part of the same fascinating puzzle.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “Popular mystery writer Scottoline and her Philadelphia Inquirer columnist daughter Serritella team up for the fourth time to offer a lively collection of eighty short essays on everything from raising puppies to the proper way to make eggplant parm. Though Scottoline penned the majority of the essays in this volume, twenty-seven-year-old Serritella’s contributions display her own brand of humor and sweetness. Scottoline—prone to comedic one-liners—makes the pages fly by in a flurry of laughs. Serritella’s ode to her ninety-year-old grandmother (affectionately referred to as Mother Mary) and her writings about her dog Pip are especially endearing. Scottoline is on-target and hilarious, whether she’s writing about politics (her piece on Anthony Weiner is a standout), ex-husbands (‘Thing One and Thing Two’), or what it’s like to sleep with five dogs. While Serritella deals with dating, rollerblading, and Facebook, Scottoline, whose ‘butt is already on social security,’ considers joining AARP. Their close-knit, outspoken Italian family is also the subject of a number of laugh-inducing selections.”
