Ladies’ Night (St. Martin’s, hardcover, $26.99, on sale 6/4/13) is the perfectly mixed cocktail of great storytelling, romance, mystery and comedy from New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews. When a group of women (and one man) find themselves getting together for “Ladies’ Night” drinks after their weekly (court-ordered) divorce therapy sessions, heartache, humor and a little bit of intrigue come together in a story about life’s unpredictable twists and turns.
*Please note that the ticket price for this event includes one hardcover copy of Ladies’ Night (the book can be picked up at Fiction Addiction when it releases on June 4th, or we can bring it to the event for you).
Grace Stanton is enjoying life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger, living in a wealthy gated community and married to Ben Stanton, a former advertising executive who now successfully manages her lucrative blog, Gracenotes. Grace’s life takes a surprise turn when she catches him in a compromising position with her assistant in his pricey Audi Spyder RX convertible in the middle of the night. Shocked beyond words, she torpedoes Ben’s beloved sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Suddenly, Grace finds herself locked out of her palatial home, her checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her own signature style.
After moving in with her widowed mother, Rochelle, who owns a beach bar called The Sandbox, Grace reluctantly attends weekly divorce therapy sessions with a group of people whose reactions to their own spouse’s betrayals landed them in court as well. But when their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own “Ladies’ Night” sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Readers will find themselves raising a glass and cheering these characters on.
