Ladies NightLadies’ Night by Mary Kay Andrews

Goodreads.com Synopsis:
Take a splash of betrayal, add a few drops of outrage, give a good shake to proper behavior and take a big sip of a cocktail called…Ladies’ Night!

Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly “divorce recovery” therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday “Ladies’ Night” sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?

Heartache, humor, and a little bit of mystery come together in a story about life’s unpredictable twists and turns. Mary Kay Andrews’ Ladies’ Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.

My Review: 5 out of 5 stars. Bloggers…this book is a fun read for you! When I realized that Grace Stanton was a lifestyle blogger, I was super excited to learn how Andrews was going to twist this plot around a blogger. She definitely did her homework. ;) I absolutely feel in love with Grace. I had a kindred spirit with her trying to re-create her brand on a new blog once her husband locked her out of hers. And the “divorce recovery” sessions. Ohhhhh man. Such a great part of the story!! Definitely grab a copy of this one!!

Save the DateSave the Date by Mary Kay Andrews

Goodreads.com Synopsis:
A wedding florist finds love and trouble in this delightful new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Ladies’ Night.

A Savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime—one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn’t believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate them. But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all.

My Review: 5 out of 5 stars. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Mary Kay Andrews hits this one out of the park. The story is charming, witty and full of fun. I love Cara’s spunk! And I love that she’s in the floral business. The entire story kept me entertained and guessing what was going to happen next. A read I highly recommend!! And I want her Goldendoodle, Poppy. Oh and the location of her flower shop!

In June, I had the opportunity to attend a Mary Kay Andrews book signing for Save the Date. OMG…I was nervous and excited all at once. I’ve been a huge fan of Mary Kay Andrews since picking up her The Fixer Upper years ago. I’ve read all of her books under her Mary Kay Andrews name and even started on her previous books under the Kathy Hogan Trocheck name (which are now being re-released under Mary Kay Andrews).

Mary Kay started the evening off talking about the book, Save the Date. She has such a great personality. Like now that I’ve heard her speak, I can totally “hear” her in her books. We had a chance to ask her questions, which I totally did. My question was “As a blogger, I have a blog tribe. People that are like-minded and have similar goals, etc. I want to know if you have a ‘tribe’.” She said she did have a group of writer friends whom she goes on retreat with every year. Maybe my blog tribe should go on retreat every year. ;) Ladies???

I stayed till the very end and was the last customer to leave. I had the opportunity to witness the bookstore’s Author “ceremonies” which entailed Mary Kay leaving her handprint as artwork for their author wall. I really really really wanted to take her out for drinks…but thought she might think I was being stalker-ish. But really I’m just a nosey/curious blogger. ;) LOL

Here is my night in pictures…
