A Wall Street Journal bestseller.
Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life.
Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion, a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life, and a mother with Alzheimer's residing in the local nursing home. She doesn't really need a crumbling old house about to fall into nothing but a pile of memories and broken knickknacks.
Billy Lee Tucker, resident oddball in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, lived next door to Gert, and in her will she leaves him the funds to help Trudy remodel the old house. That's fine with Billy Lee, because he's been in love with Trudy since before they started school. And just spending time with her is something he'd never ever allowed himself to dream about.
A beautiful home rises up from the old house on Broadway, and right along with it rises up a relationship. But is Trudy too scarred from what she heard in the ladies' room to see a lovely future with Billy Lee?

At her Aunt Gertrude's funeral, Trudy overhears her cousins' discussion about her husband's multiple affairs and snaps. Dating back almost to the wedding, it seems that it is commonly known throughout their small Oklahoma town that her husband treats his mistresses better than his wife, buying them more expensive gifts and even new cars, while she is driving an older model--and she is the only one who doesn't know of his infidelity. Finding courage and gumption even she never suspected she had, Trudy leaves her husband and moves into the house she inherits from Aunt Gert. The home is a wreck in desperate need of remodeling, but the will makes provision for next-door neighbor and childhood friend Billy Lee Tucker to help Trudy remodel the house. As Trudy and Billy Lee makeover the decrepit old house, can Trudy also repair her broken heart? As Trudy and Billy Lee labor together, side-by-side, will their friendship develop into something more or has Trudy been burned too badly to ever risk her heart again? This story progresses along fairly predictable lines, but the writing is so fresh and funny that I enjoyed it anyway. The Ladies Room is a great book for anyone who has ever suffered a broken heart, but it is specifically well suited for fans of chick lit.
Are you kidding! This is a 5 star book if I ever read one. I have read it twice and will definitely read again. It is so entertaining. Love it, Love it.
$76.00 is ridiculously steep. Especially when Amazon has it for $3.99. Just wrong
Poor Trudy takes a stand and gives herself a good swift kick in the back-side, and I love that she gives up on being “nice” in favor of being honest. It would be crushing to find out your husband has been cheating on you since day one, and your daughter treats you like dirt, but it is amazing to see how Trudy thrives instead of folds. Billy Lee is the truest of true best friends, and never once does he allow Trudy to belittle or doubt herself. Anyone with a friend like Billy Lee should count themselves very lucky, so maybe we should all take a page out of this book and live our passion. Lototy Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More
