Publisher Description

The unstoppable, irreverent mother-daughter team presents a new collection of funny stories and true confessions that every woman can relate to, Does This Beach Make Me Look Fat?

From identity theft to the hazards of bicycling to college reunions and eating on the beach, Lisa and Francesca tackle the quirks, absurdities, and wonders of everyday life with wit and warmth. As Lisa says, "More and more, especially in the summertime when I'm sitting on the beach, I'm learning not to sweat it. To go back to the child that I used to be. To see myself through the loving eyes of my parents. To eat on the beach. And not to worry about whether every little thing makes me look fat. In fact, not to worry at all."

So put aside your worries and join Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca as they navigate their way through the crazy world we live in, laughing along the way.

Bed deb 2012 ,

Humorously enjoyable little tidbits from their lives!!

I've been reading Lisa Scottoline for years, but this is the first one I've read that she has written with her daughter. This book was frigging hilarious and I could so relate to so many things. Especially Lisa's stories as we are about the same age.

There is no topic in here that is off limits. And after hearing some of Francesca's dating stories I'm glad I'm done with all that.

I agree with with Lisa, I might be dead below the waist and probably need a hammer and chisel, but at least I can watch TV. Ha!

This would be an excellent beach read and for people who aren't into long drawn out books, the longest story is maybe 10 pages. So you can read for a while, come back and never have to think "what was going on?".

Thanks St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. I was thoroughly entertained.

Really fun and insightful read...

A great easy read. Able to pick up and put down without loosing your train of thought and having to retread a few pages to remember what was happening. Great for me, a mom who gets snippets of time in her day....
I also think there is some sage wisdom being imparted through all the humor. Will definitely read these authors again.
