January 2010 Indie Next List
“Scottoline shares her life over the course of a year in this insightful and humorous book, reflecting on family, aging in today's American culture, regrettable paint choices, electronic devices that think for us, education, haircuts, Thanksgiving, and the press. You'll be laughing out loud over her observations about life and the bizarre nature of things.”
— Natalie Glenn, Red-Tail Books, Eleven Mile Corner, AZ
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

"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
