Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim by Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella

Philly’s favorite author is at it again with sidekick daughter Francesca in this latest collection of hilarious tales.  Of course everyone knows Lisa Scottoline for her riveting mystery and suspense fiction. But did you know there is another side to this best-selling writer; the one who is a proud, animal-loving, mother-cub, who loves to share her innermost thoughts with the world…and her daughter?

Fans of Scottoline’s newspaper column Chick Wit will not be disappointed by her latest cache of essays. With titles such as “Shakespeare Was No Dummy,” “Wag the Technology,” and “I Stink, Officially,” she tackles subjects as funny and as complex as the world we live in today. Interjecting her own essays into the mix is Francesca, who has her own spectrum of personal gripes and rants, which delightfully lend a 20-something voice to this eclectic collection

One of the great things about this book is that you can read it straight through or just randomly pick essays to enjoy.  It’s also the kind of book you’ll be reading aloud to your best girlfriend. And while it’s hard to pick a favorite in the bunch, you are guaranteed non-stop laughs as you read about Lisa’s escapades with her mother [Mother Mary], the random quirkiness of her adorable pets, and the many reasons why you should always wear a bra, especially when you are at home.

This book deserves a front-and-center spot on all library shelves and would make a terrific Christmas present for anyone on your list. I truly hope Lisa Scottoline continues to produce both genres of her literary masterworks for all to enjoy.
