A hilarious collection of stories from the life of The New York Times bestselling author of Look Again

At last, together in one collection, are Lisa Scottoline's wildly popular Philadelphia Inquirer columns. In her column, Lisa lets her hair down, roots and all, to show the humorous side of life from a woman's perspective. The Sunday column debuted in 2007 and on the day it started, Lisa wrote, "I write novels, so I usually have 100,000 words to tell a story. In a column there's only 700 words. I can barely say hello in 700 words. I'm Italian." The column gained momentum and popularity. Word of mouth spread, and readers demanded a collection. Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog is that collection. Seventy vignettes. Vintage Scottoline.

In this collection, you'll laugh about:
• Being caught braless in the emergency room
• Betty and Veronica's Life Lessons for Girls
• A man's most important body part
• Interrupting as an art form
• A religion men and women can worship
• Real estate ads as porn
• Spanx are public enemy number one
• And so much more about life, love, family, pets, and the pursuit of jeans that actually fit!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mystery writer Lisa Scottoline's clever observations are snappy and funny, and her narration of this collection of her "Chick Wit" columns for the Philadelphia Inquirer is fast paced, animated...and funny...Scottoline's wit and wisdom are a treat. AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner

  • This audiobook was made better by having been read by Ms. Scottoline herself, along with a guest appearance from her daughter, Francesca Serritella, because only she could have known the exact tone the story needed to be read in. Women and men alike will find something to laugh and smile about in this riotous romp. Simply Ali

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 3/22/2011

    " Delightful, laugh out loud funny collection of Scottoline's columns -- discusses everything from dog training to home repairs in style. Great book to just leave hanging around and read a few selections at a time (as opposed to a novel to devour in bigger bites).
