Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog by Lisa Scottoline. Publisher: St. Martin’s Press, November 2009

This one’s for you, extraordinary ordinary women everywhere! It’s time for seriously girl-talk with New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline. She’s shared this collection of scenes from her real life and she bets her life sounds a lot like yours…if you crave carbs, can’t find jeans that fit, and still believe that these two things are unrelated. Pick up this book—you’ll laugh, you’ll cray, and you’ll swear off pantyhose. Here are some exactly of Lisa’s wit and wisdom:

“Everybody has their pornography, and mine is the real estate ads.”

“We’ll get universal health care before we get beauty salons open on Mondays, and that’s backwards. Ask any woman if she’d rather have a haircut or a mammogram, and you’ll see what I mean.”

“Mothers are a natural force, and maybe an alternative source of fuel.”

“Lately there’s been talk about a religion that allows polygamy, so that a man can have as many wives as he pleases. Where is the religion that allows a woman to have as many husbands as she pleases?”

“I have never been in an accident, if you don’t count my two marriages.”

“My mother taught us that if you eat baked beans from a can that has dents, you’ll die of botulism. This was before people injected botulism into their faces. Nowadays, the dented can will kill you, but you’ll look young.”

Also inside you’ll find Lisa’s thoughts on:

  • Being caught braless in the emergency room
  • A man’s most important body part
  • Interrupting as a sign of enthusiasm
  • And so much more about life, love, family, pets, and the pursuit of jeans that actually fit

Inspired by her wildly popular column in the The Philadelphia Inquirer entitled “Chick Wit,” Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog is a book you’ll have to put down—just to stop laughing.

This was a funny and entertaining collection of articles from Lisa’s column all condensed in one book. My rating: 4 stars
