From the bestselling mother/daughter writing duo comes another hilarious collection of essays about motherhood, daughterhood, womanhood, and "does this hood look good on me?" Love and tomato sauce are thick in the Scottoline/Serritella household, and Lisa and Francesca's mother-daughter turned best-friends bond will strike a familiar note to many. But now that Lisa is a suburban empty-nester and Francesca is an independent twenty-something in the big city, they have to learn how to stay close while living apart. How does a mother's love translate across state lines and over any semblance of personal boundaries? You'll laugh out loud as they face-off over the proper technique for packing dishes, the importance of bringing a coat in the summertime, and the dos and don'ts of dating at any age. Add feisty octogenarian Mother Mary to the mix, and you have a Molotov cocktail of estrogen, opinions, and fun. Booklist raved that Best Friends, Occasional Enemies was "one big gabfest with your best girlfriends, whatever their age," and now, in Meet Me at the Emotional Baggage Claim, the mother-daughter duo of Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella continue the conversation with more hilarious and honest tales of life inside an ordinary, extraordinary family. These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.

"What makes this third collection of the authors' "Chick Wit" columns so much fun is hearing them read it themselves. Lisa Scottoline's smart-alecky delivery supports her wisecracking style of introspection and self-deprecating humor. Scottoline delights in her quirky family and their unconventional styles, all the while trying to find a way to deal with empty-nest parenting. Daughter Francesca Serritella's voice is younger and less seasoned, but her energy is high, and her observations are spot-on. She tells about bonding with her mom while watching sports and action-adventure movies and offers a "Field Guide to the American Male" from the perspective of a 20-something woman. For the "Flying Scottolines," a "good fight" is not an oxymoron but the seasoning that makes mother-daughter love even more delicious. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
