    "We take real life and make it funny."--Lisa ScottolinePhiladelphia lawyer turned courtroom/thriller novelist Lisa Scottoline has also been writing "true stories and confessions." I thought it was about time I read one of her humor books, which she co-authors with her daughter Francesca Serritella. I picked up I See Life Through Rose'-Colored Glasses through NetGalley.My husband and I began reading Scottoline's novels for their Philadelphia local...

    I was drawn to the cover of this book and thought for sure I would love it. I love anything by Lisa Scottoline and this book is made of short stories by her and her daughter. This book fell short of keeping me entertained. It just didn’t hold my interest. DNF at 20%. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this complimentary book. All opinions expressed are my own.
  • Paula Adams
    I love reading these stories. They are such fun to read and they are about things that really happened to them. Some of them are laugh out loud funny. One was very sad about one of Lisa's dogs, I cried. I always enjoy these books, it's a nice change. Sometime I will have to try their audiobooks. Lisa and her daughter Francesca do the recordings themselves. I received this ARC through NetGalley.
  • Diane Merritt
    Funny, witty, relatable. What a great read... take your time and devour each story. Such love in this family you can feel it through the pages.Thanks to the publisher and netgalley for an early release of this book.
  • Patricia Romero
    If you only know Lisa Scottoline from her Thrillers, then you are in for a treat when she joins her daughter in this humorous series of true life stories of a mother and daughter and the way they view life as two adult women in different stages of life.From Lisa we get the stuff a lot of us are dealing with. They make the every day hilarious and you can't help but laugh along as you are saying, " Oh my lord, I thought that was just me!" Well, it ...
  • Diane Perry
    I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I love a book that makes me laugh out loud. This series is the best! These two women are real, funny, raw and 100 percent relatable! Kick back, relax and just enjoy pure fun. Fantastic!
  • Patsye
    I had a hard time stopping laughing long enough to write this review! I LOVED this book. It is a great read for anyone at any age, but if you have a daughter or a mother (wink), you can relate to all of this on a number of levels. This is a series of humorous essays/columns from Lisa and Francesca, a mother and daughter team of authors who have a wonderful gift for words. They write a weekly newspaper column titled “Chick Wit”, and many of th...
  • Kim
    As always, Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella address some of the oddities and uncertainties of life with humor, sarcasm, wit, and intelligence. They speak of being pet owners and how obsessive we can be (yes, myself included!), of aging, gracefully or not so much so. They address dating - or not, and so many other topics. Sometimes the sharp edged humor hides real truths that really hit close to home. Each year I look forward ...
  • Deborah Fontaine
    This collection of story stories was a little hard to get into as I’m not usually a short story reader, but I am a big fan of the author Lisa Scottoline and was excited to read I See Life Through Rose-Colored Glasses. The book, at times, was relatable, humorous—laugh-out-loud funny, and a few times brought tears to my eyes. I could relate to many of the true life stories as my daughter and I are very close—best friends—as with Lisa and Fr...
  • Jill
    Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's press for an early copy of this book for review!Another fun and exciting collection of stories from Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella. It was a quirky set of stories and I learned in this book that "quirky means adorable."I waited a few days to start this one because I knew once I started I would want to continue to read just one more and I would get nothing else done. And that was true. I read the e...
  • Lori
    Another LOL read for this mother/daughter duo. They are a winning combination in The Inquirer (Philadelphia) and these are short stories are based on their experiences. This is a great escape is you are reading a thriller that has you stressed or biting your nails or on a beach vacation. Easy to read a story or 4, then pick up a glass of Rosé! My kids and hubby stopped asking what was so funny for fear I’d read them another story.Thanks to Net...
  • Brenda
    Lisa Scottoline and her adult daughter Francesca Serritella reveal their year of mother-daughter, real life moments in this latest in their series and it is all good clean fun with a touch of sadness as the situation warrants.This is a book to savor, though you want to rush through to see what they have come up with next. From make-up to dogs, colonoscopy kits to carb consumption, each 'tale' brings a smile or a tear. I love the reminiscing of Ph...
  • Kathy
    Thank you to Goodreads, St. Martin's Press, Lisa Scottoline, and Francesca Serritella for the Advance Reader Copy I won through a Goodreads Giveaway!!!! First let me say right before winning the giveaway someone at work asked does anyone ever win Goodreads Giveaways and said YES because I had won one before so thank you for the opportunity to read this.I love Lisa's and Francesca's books.

  • Stephanie
    Can I just say how much I love Lisa Scottoline?? She is not only a wonderful author but one of the funniest, sweetest women around...her personality just shines through in the essays she writes with her equally funny and fantastic daughter Francesca Serritella! I really do adore this mother-daughter duo, and their series of books about their real-life is just the best! They have such a wonderful relationship, and it makes reading their essays ju...
  • Nancy
    Every summer, I look forward to the newest episode of the Lisa and Francesca family saga. Each year, as this mother-daughter writing team releases their Chick Wit column in book form, I cannot wait to sit down with them to share in their laughter and to realize, no matter whom you are, the good and the bad in life finds us all. In the past, I would listen to their most recent book while driving my daughter back to college or when I wandered on a ...

    See this review on 1776books.net...http://1776books.blogspot.com/2018/04...Over the years, I've had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Scottoline a few times, and believe me when I tell you that she is one of the nicest people you will ever come across in your life. She greets her fans not with handshakes but with hugs, and the word that comes most to mind when I think of her is "genuine."Her daughter, Francesca Serritella, is exactly the same way. Lis...
  • Kirsten Grier
    ***I received a Kindle edition of the books from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review***This was the first book I've read from this mother/daughter duo and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I don't normally read short stories or essay books, but wanted a fun and light read for the weekend. This definitely fit the bill! Every essay was filled with love and humor and I really felt like I got to know them through their storie...
  • Kourtney
    This review is dedicated to Ruby. Corgis are my favorite, and she was my favorite out of all of Lisa Scottoline's dogs. Yes - I have a favorite. I have read a handful of Lisa and Francesca's compilation books and feel as though I am unofficially a member of their family. I laughed along with Lisa's stories of aging and coming to terms with it. I nodded along with stories of Francesca's break-ups. I enjoyed the stories about all of the animals. I ...
  • Michelle
    The real life and unique adventures of Lisa and her daughter Francesca.Some tales are more amusing than others.I definitely related more to Francesca’s stories, she’s around my age and has a more down to earth personality than Lisa.Lisa is a wild woman lol I like how everything can be an adventure to them. Anything could be a story. They see a light side to life, a humor even in hard times. I always respect that.But I didn’t get super inter...
  • Angela Mcvay
    Thank you Netgalley for allowing me an advanced reader copy of this book! This is currently one of my most favorite series of true stories between this mother and daughter writing team. They are so funny and so real that I think most people can relate. And, if you can’t relate to them then at least you can laugh about their real life occurrences. They share wonderful family stories, lots of dog stories, women stories in such an honest humorous ...
  • Lynn
    I just love reading the collaboration of stories between mother and daughter, Lisa and Francesca. The way the stories are laid out; it's always a great comparison to how events and experiences can be seen through different eyes as a mother a daughter. And always, always laugh out loud funny! I constantly find myself saying, "yes, that's me!" or "I'm so glad I'm not the only one". I just love their relationship with each other and their sense of a...

    I received a free copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads programReview of Advance Reader CopyThis selection of vignettes, filled with pleasantly-relatable repartee from the mother-daughter duo, is the ninth in the series. Readers new to the series will find themselves drawn in from the very first page. By turns humorous, facetious and wry, these are stories about the every-day, about the relatable, about the quasi-confidential “hap...
  • Ayekah
    Yet another fantastic read from Lisa and Francesca. I love reading this mother daughter tag team as they weave their tales of real life and real laughs together. Honestly it's refreshing, wet your pants funny at times and makes us laugh at ourselves knowing we're not the only ones out there that these things happen to! They take us along with them as they look, live and relate to us real life via their eyes. It's a not to be missed book. I look f...
  • Leslie M.
    This is a collection of short stories by popular author Lisa Scottoline (though VERY different from the fiction books she writes) and her daughter Francesca. It’s the eighth book in the series, but it’s the only one I’ve ever read. The stories are funny and relatable, particular if you are in a mother/daughter relationship. Due to the nature of the book, it’s a quick read, perfect for summer travel. There’s a little bit of everything in...
  • Andria D'Errico
    I have been a fan of Lisa Scottoline, and have read all of her mysteries, and drama series. I knew she had written another series with her daughter, but had just not been interested. I received this copy from Goodreads, and it was thoroughly enjoyable and now I'll have to go back and read the rest of the series. Lisa and Francesca wrote about everyday things that women go through, but are able to turn an every day experience like opening your jun...
  • JF
    Although I have been a fan of Lisa Scottoline’s mysteries, I did not know she co-wrote a column for the Philadelphia Inquirer with her daughter, Francesca Serritella. "I See Life Through Rosé-Colored Glasses" is the ninth collection of their work. The book is a series of vignettes - a mixture of cute, sweet, poignant, and funny. Many pieces were from the heart but some felt contrived and choppy, with single-sentence paragraphs. I listened to t...
  • Linda
    I’ve been a fan of Lisa Scottoline for years but this was the first time I have tried one of her nonfiction books. I quickly learned that I have been missing out, Reading this book was like having a long conversation with an old friend. For the most part, the stories were witty and insightful and I found myself laughing out loud.. At other times, they brought tears to my eyes. In both cases Lisa and her daughter helped me look at some of the up...
  • Ellen Moore
    I thoroughly enjoyed this humorous book of articles/ columns/ essays by the mother/daughter duo and found I could relate to many of them. I love Lisa's books and have read them all, but these writings were new to me. My daughter tells me several preceded this one, and I look forward to reading them also. It is good to find reading material that makes me laugh after reading so many serious books. I won this book through Goodreads and appreciate th...
  • Pammy
    This book was good, entertaining and certainly funny at times. However, it also didn’t keep my interest all the way through the book. This book is made up of a bunch of small stories (true to Lisa and her daughters life) that are very entertaining and funny at times, but this book also lost my interest in some of the small stories. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great book, that is sure to make you LOL at times. It’s a very fun read. I’m ty...
  • Tina
    I See Life Through Rose-Colored is a humorous and heartwarming collection of essays by bestselling author Lisa Scottoline and her daughter, Francesca Serritella. This book is the ninth book in a series based on their column “Chick Wit” appearing weekly in The Philadelphia Inquirer for the last ten years. The essays are good because they are relatable to every woman. Lisa and Francesca have a relationship to be envied. My favorite quote from t...
