Lisa Scottline is well-known for her mysteries, but she and daughter Francesca have also written several humorous essay/memoirs as a mother-daughter team, comparable to Erma Bombeck or Nora Ephron. While looking for a light audiobook to offset commuter gridlock, Does This Beach Make Me Look Fat? True Stories and Confessions helped lighten the mood with their characteristic self-deprecating take on everything from dealing with rodent control, diets, relationships/dating and family. It’s hard not to smile while listening to anecdotes about the lively “Flying Scottolines” who are warm, funny and outspoken, and Lisa and Francesca’s stories of “Mother Mary” are laced with love and laughter, even with her passing.
