From the bestselling mother/daughter writing duo comes another hilarious collection of essays about motherhood, daughterhood, womanhood, and "does this hood look good on me?"

Love and tomato sauce are thick in the Scottoline/Serritella household, and Lisa and Francesca's mother-daughter turned best-friends bond will strike a familiar note to many. But now that Lisa is a suburban empty-nester and Francesca is an independent twenty-something in the big city, they have to learn how to stay close while living apart. How does a mother's love translate across state lines and over any semblance of personal boundaries? You'll laugh out loud as they face-off over the proper technique for packing dishes, the importance of bringing a coat in the summertime, and the dos and don'ts of dating at any age. Add feisty octogenarian Mother Mary to the mix, and you have a Molotov cocktail of estrogen, opinions, and fun.

Booklist raved that Best Friends, Occasional Enemies was "one big gabfest with your best girlfriends, whatever their age," and now, in Meet Me at the Emotional Baggage Claim, the mother-daughter duo of Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella continue the conversation with more hilarious and honest tales of life inside an ordinary, extraordinary family. These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A warm, lively collection of narrative vignettes chronicling the day-to-day relationship of two women who also happen to be part of a successful mother-daughter writing team…Despite all the ‘emotional baggage’ they carry (and fearlessly claim), however, their faith in and commitment to each other remains unshaken because, writes Scottoline, ‘that’s love.’ Erma Bombeck for mothers and daughters, with a zesty Italian twist.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Another delicious mix of family and friendship…No subject is off limits here, as Scottoline and Serritella include relevant quips for women from eighteen to eighty-two. With the title serving as a surefire indicator, readers can count on an ab-toning laugh session, a silly giggle, a sympathetic sigh, and a lump in the throat as life’s moments are rehashed through the keen eyes and wits of this lovable mother-daughter duo.”


  • “What makes this third collection of the authors’ ‘Chick Wit’ columns so much fun is hearing them read it themselves. Lisa Scottoline’s smart-alecky delivery supports her wisecracking style of introspection and self-deprecating humor…Daughter Francesca Serritella’s voice is younger and less seasoned, but her energy is high and her observations are spot-on.”


  • “The witty and warm mother-daughter team are back…There’s a lot of love in this book; readers who have affectionate families will feel at home, and those who don’t will enjoy these relatives who are also friends…[A] delightful collection of essays that are fun to read, share, and ponder.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Scottoline is doing so well with her juicily acerbic essay collections, particularly those written with daughter Serritella, that one wonders whether they will start taking precedence over her best-selling fiction. Here, mother and daughter deal with separation anxiety of an adult sort, as Serritella moves to the big city and Scottoline looks about her suburban empty nest.”

    Library Journal

  • “Like most parents and offspring, Lisa and Francesca Scottoline have a complicated, ever evolving relationship. The difference, however, between them and us is that they write about it in such infectious ways that we can’t help but chuckle and identify with their unfolding predicaments…Filled with rollicking stories and ample quantities of accidental wisdom, this new book by the mother-daughter [team]…renews our faith in second generations. Editor’s recommendation.”

    Barnes&, editorial review

  • What makes this third collection of the authors' ‘Chick Wit' columns so much fun is hearing them read it themselves. Lisa Scottoline's smart-alecky delivery supports her wisecracking style of introspection and self-deprecating humor… [Francesca's] energy is high and her observations are spot-on. AudioFile Magazine
