I really enjoyed Ladies' Night. It was a quick read with lots of laughs. This is the first book of MK Andrews that I have read. She is an excellent writer and very insightful. This book is a real page-turner.

Predictable and Illogical. I have read all Andrews' books, and I enjoy an easy/breezy beach read as much as anyone else. But I do like my beach reads with logic and some type of character development. This book is almost 500 pages yet there is not a fully developed character in it; there are large gaps in motivation, plot--halfway through I found myself saying 'what the???' out loud. The protagonist, Grace, is cruelly duped and cheated by her husband--an awful, wretched man who seems to have only one side: being hideous. What did Grace ever see in him to marry him? As he is characterized as totally one dimensional, it makes no real sense that he was able to fool her all these years. As Grace is supposed to be smart and super-industrious, it makes absolutely no sense to stick her with this guy and give us no insight, at all, into how she ever trusted him, how she ever believed him...indeed, other than a couple of 'blink and you'll miss it references' we are given no 'backstory' on this relationship at all. To further complicate. Grace then turns around and throws herself into--and at--the first good guy who seems interested. What??? She has been mistreated in horrible ways; she says she 'hates' men and can no longer trust them but gets totally bent out of shape when her intended seduction seems hesitant to rebound with a woman who is not even divorced yet and claims she has no use for men?? It makes no sense. While other Andrews' novels like 'Spring Fever' and 'Savannah Blues' display some really fun humor and some great supporting characters--especially the female best friends--this does not. All these characters show one side and no depth; the only exception is Camryn, a member of the divorce group, and she is not nearly as developed as she could be. That being said, if the lack of logic and some real plot gaps (this ends with some questions for those of us paying attention) are not factors, then this is otherwise a totally easy read that will go down nicely at the pool. One truly unique addition to the plot is using a past its prime animal park/botanical gardens as one of its settings. Oh--and this has nothing to do with the book--can someone PLEASE post on here how to give a review a heading that is NOT cut off in mid sentence or word??? I thought I had it figured out, but I obviously don't. I thank you very much ahead of time:))

    Entertaining but over the top

    It was entertaining but a bit over the top. It was hard to relate to the characters with so much drama going on.

    A very slow read

    This book dragged for me. It is good for a vacation trip or a beach read. I usually love this author but this book let me down.
