Reviews


“True tales on how we live from a mother and daughter who are best pals - and a very funny writing team.”
– People Magazine "Best Beach Book"
“They are adept at turning challenges into funny stories.”
– Booklist
"The two writers are very different in style and approach – Lisa tends to go straight for the funny bone in an Everywoman manner reminiscent of the late great Erma Bombeck, Francesca often aims at more serious matters but with a wry comic twist that is all her own. Both women are so skilled at building humor within their pieces that they defy excerpting. The laughs don’t come from gags, but from scenes in their lives that they build into mini-dramas.We all need down-to-earth wisdom and comedy now more than ever, and you will find both in abundance in “I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool.”
