Goodreads Synopsis:

In I See Life Through Rosé Colored-Glasses, the bestselling mother/daughter pair is back with another hilarious and heartfelt collection of essays about the possibilities and pitfalls of everyday life. 

Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella’s delightful essays are sure to strike a chord with every woman. Their nine book series is among the best-reviewed humor books published today and has been compared to the late greats Erma Bombeck and Nora Ephron.

My Review:

Can I just say how much I love Lisa Scottoline?? She is not only a wonderful author but one of the funniest, sweetest women around…her personality just shines through in the essays she writes with her equally funny and fantastic daughter Francesca Serritella! 

I really do adore this mother-daughter duo, and their series of books about their real-life is just the best! They have such a wonderful relationship, and it makes reading their essays just that much better. The essays are just brilliant; they are personal, warm, witty, relatable, hysterical, and just so highly entertaining! Every time I read one, I start to imagine what it will be like when my own daughter, who just turned eight, is an adult, and I only hope she and I will have the same kind of relationship as Lisa and Francesca!!

These two talk about everything! And by that, I do mean everything: their dogs and cats, who are a tremendous part of their family (and I LOVE what a huge pet lover they both are, which only makes me adore the duo more!!), loss of a pet and how that is so shattering, the toilet??, hearing about dating through the eyes of Francesca, the horrors of Spanx, receiving a do-it-yourself colonoscopy in the mail(!), technology issues, they touch on feminism, the strength of being a woman, and they made me feel so blessed and thankful to be a woman and part of a great group of women who just enrich my life and make it more meaningful every day…and I’m including them in this by just being a part of my life by sharing their stories and thoughts. And there is so much more in the book-no topic is off limits for them, but it is clean, fun humor with touches of sadness at times (I even cried) depending on what the duo is reminiscing about.

This was a perfect, quick book to read while sitting on the beach while on vacation or to read even if you aren’t on vacation! It’s just a perfect read!! If you want to read a wonderful collection of essays that will make you laugh or sometimes cry, then you need to pick up I See Life Through Rosé-Colored Glasses asap! I can’t wait to read their next book together! 

**Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for my review copy in exchange for my fair and honest review.**

  1. Wow, Stephanie, I wish I had picked this one up! I think I have one of their past ones (ack, may have more than one!), and I need to read it! I remember watching them on a Facebook video, and I loved their witty banter back and forth. You wrote a lovely review, and I will try to read one of these soon! ♥️
