This week Lisa Scottoline and her daughter, Francesca Serritella, released their new collection of humorous short stories: Have a Nice Guilt Trip. The book is currently a #1 best-seller on Amazon and it’s receiving rave reviews. To support the new release, these two funny and intelligent ladies made an appearance earlier today in Collegeville, PA at the Town Book Center & Cafe as part of their book tour.
My girlfriend, Stephanie, and I were in attendance at the event, and as usual, it was great. Lisa and Francesca had the crowd in stitches with funny stories about a recent road trip, ex-husbands and the late, great “Mother Mary.” And did I mention that they brought two of their dogs with them? Peach and Pip – who everyone loved, of course.
We, along with the other nearly 100 fans in attendance, had a terrific time at the book signing. Lisa is known for remembering her fans by first name and greeting them with a warm embrace. Francesca was equally charming and Peach was kind enough to strike a pose for our photo.
If Lisa or Francesca are ever in your area, go see them. You’re guaranteed to laugh hard, smile often and leave with a great book. You can’t ask for much more than that.
And if you’d like Lisa and Francesca to read their new book to you, pick up a copy of the audiobook. Below is a sample so you can hear what it sounds like:
