Francesca Serritella and her mother, Lisa Scottoline, are back with another collection of warm and witty stories that will strike a chord with every woman. Their series is among the best reviewed humor books published today and has been compared to the late greats, Erma Bombeck and Nora Ephron. In praise of the mother-daughter duo’s books, Booklist says, “No subject is off-limits here, as Scottoline and Serritella include relevant quips for women from 18 to 82. With the title serving as a sure-fire 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.” In HAVE A NICE GUILT TRIP, Francesca and Lisa continue to share their lives in their hilarious, and often, poignant stories.
