Product description


"Scottoline savors every last bit of her life, and so will you." --People magazine

"Plunging into home improvement frenzy, constructing a chicken coop, figuring out mystifying insurance policies and how not to die at the gym are some of the conundrums this ordinary woman faces with verve and wicked humor, especially how her beloved dogs have contentedly replaced the romance in her life." --Publishers Weekly

"Scottoline takes the fodder of everyday life and offers witty reflections from a female perspective." --Booklist

"...shrewd, tart, sensitive and hard to resist." --Kirkus Reviews

"She has compiled about 70 of the funniest, smartest and most poignant dispatches into one deliciously exuberant collection. What really makes this collection so addictive is Scottoline's way of capturing everyday moments, dissecting them and coming up with unexpected and slightly off-kilter observations about life." --Book Page
