Take a splash of betrayal, add a few drops of outrage, give a good shake to proper behavior and take a big sip of a cocktail called…Ladies' Night! 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?  Heartache, humor, and a little bit of mystery come together in a story about life’s unpredictable twists and turns.  Mary Kay Andrews' Ladies' Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.

f Grace Stanton had known the world as she knew it was going to end thatuneventful evening in May, she might have been better prepared. She cer-tainly would have packed more underwear and a decent bra, not to mentionmoisturizer and her iPhone charger.But as far as Grace knew, she was just doing her job, writing and photo-graphing Gracenotes, a blog designed to make her own lifestyle look so glamor-ous, enticing, and delicious it made perfectly normal women (and gay men)want to rip up the script for their own lives and rebuild one exactly like hers.She peered through the lens finder of her Nikon D7000 and frowned, but onlyfor a moment, because, as Ben had told her countless times, a frown was for-ever. She made a conscious effort to smooth the burgeoning wrinkles in herforehead, then concentrated anew on her composition.She’d polished the old pine table to a dull sheen, and the available light stream-ing in from the dining room window glinted off the worn boards. With her righthand, she made a minute adjustment to one of the two deliberately mismatchedwhite ironstone platters she’d placed on a rumpled— but not wrinkled— antiqueFrench grain-sack table runner.

Grace Stanton's elegant lifestyle blog, Gracenotes, has grown into a lucrative business, thanks to her popular recipes and decorating and craft ideas, in Andrews's latest (after Spring Fever). But when she discovers that her husband and her assistant are having an affair, her life and career both collapse in a moment. Moving back in with her mother, Grace fights her husband, who's intent on betraying her further by locking her out of their house and seizing their bank accounts, taking control of Gracenotes, and sabotaging her online reputation. His bad behavior is aided and abetted by notorious woman-hating judge Stackpole, who does nothing to defend Grace and sends her to a divorce recovery group run by a hapless counselor. Grace quickly builds friendships with the members of her recovery group-and begins a romance with the sole male attendee. She also investigates the curious behavior of the judge and her counselor, and starts a new blog to document her stylish restoration of a Florida cottage. Bestseller Andrews is at the top of her game, delivering a smart, funny perfect-for-summer read with a hopeful heart. Agent: Stuart Krichevsky, the Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency.
