Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly “divorce recovery” therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday “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. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?
Cheating spouses, a dirty judge, divorcees being forced into group therapy with a flaky divorce coach, a stolen blog, the process of rebuilding and a few psychopaths and we’ve got ourselves Ladies’ Night. This was a pretty long read and there was a lot that I felt dragged but for the most part it was an enjoyable book. I love books about groups of women getting together and spilling tea and we got a lot of that here. And of course I love when the victim comes out on top and karma bites the assholes right in the ass. We got a lot of that too. And then… we get our happy ending. This is a great beach read.
