Goodreads:  The bestselling and “perennially hilarious” mother-daughter team is back with a new collection of stories from their real lives, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Join Lisa and Francesca as they regret drunk-shopping online, try smell-dating, and explore the freedom of a hiatus from men - a Guyatus. They offer a fresh and funny take on the triumphs and facepalm moments of modern life, showing that when it comes to navigating the crazy world we live in, you’re always your own best lifeguard 

Kritters Thoughts:  I will have to admit this early, I have yet to read one of these kinds of books by Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella, even though I own almost all of them, I just hadn't read them and when I was pitched this book to review I decided I had to do it!  

In a few of the essays I will say that Lisa specifically hinted at stories from the past and as this was my first read of theirs I felt a little left out, not enough to not laugh and get the moral of the story, but just felt as though I was missing a little piece.

There were some essays or stories that literally made me laugh out loud and even to the point of laugh crying, as a dog person, I tended to absolutely adore the stories where dogs were involved.  I was also a bit partial to Francesca's stories because we are close to the same age, so I related to her stories and was saying ME TOO during a lot of her stories.

Although, I didn't read this on a beach but instead in fits and spurts and here and there, I think this would be a perfect addition to your beach bag.  The quick essays allow you to read and pay attention if you have a little one frolicking in the sand or floating in the pool.  Of course the cover is even perfect to lounge by the side of the pool with! 

After reading this one, I will definitely be picking up the other ones and quick, I want to see the stories that I was missing and get to know these two better.

Rating: perfect beach read
