Reviewer: Jessica Higgins
A mother/daughter duo telling humorous stories we can all relate to in one way or another.
As the seventh in the series, I’ve Got Sand In All The Wrong Places gives fun lighthearted banter back and forth between Mother Lisa and Daughter Francesca. With stories about love, life, and family, these two go back and forth with tales of their escapades. Lisa tells a few more tales than Francesca, but both keep their animals at the forefront of what is happening in their lives, which only adds to the humor.
This was my first book by either of the authors and it was a fun, entertaining tale. The chapters were short and sassy. Lisa had almost twice as many chapters as Francesca which I thought could have been laid out a little better. I would have preferred a more even split with a better back and forth between the two authors. While there isn’t anything incredibly memorable about this book, it was a light-hearted, fun, summer read. Granted, the title of the book does say the women are ordinary! The chapter titles help bring the reader into what is happening with the fun, creativeness to them. At times I found myself smiling and almost laughing out loud at the antics of mother and daughter. I’m sure these two have much more in store for readers and with any luck it will be just as fun and entertaining.
