    • this book made me sad. it made me sad because lisa scottoline is apparently a best-selling author (of mysteries--i'm not sure how her humor collections stack up in terms of sales) who makes enough of a living from her writing that she is able to afford an embarrassingly gargantuan house, if the numerous photos in this book are to be believed. i love my little bungalow, but i'm pretty sure scottoline's kitchen is bigger than my entire houseottoline has a weekly column in the "philadelphia inquire [...]

    • For anyone who is a fan of Lisa Scottoline of just good humorous writing you will love this book. Lisa is just a straight shooting, honest to goodness funny lady. She loved her family, her fur babies, diet coke and books. She is the kind of person that you want to know because you feel like she would be the kind of friend that made good solid relationships easy and no fuss. I love her fiction books and that is what drew me to her short stories about her real life. I also think that her daughter [...]

    • This book is just plain fun. Although I have no children I can relate to all the dog and cat stories, and I understand the relationship between mother and daughter, as I am an only child, so I get it. Pick this book up and just slip away and enjoy.

    • This book was really enjoyable. It's written by Lisa Scottoline and her daughter, Francesca. It's really just her funny thoughts on multiple topics. There were a few parts where I chuckled and I was entertained the whole time. I think this is one of 6 books by her that are just little anecdotes and I thought it was really fun to read the other side of the famous mystery/drama writer. You get to see what she's really like and she seems very down to earth. If you've read any of her books or if you [...]

    • When I was a kid, somebody in my family handed me Erma Bombeck. Without delving too much into the psychology behind my reasoning, my career goal as a kid was to be a mom. I wanted six kids and I had the names all picked out. I actuallly don't remember the names at this point, but I do remember there was a heavy floral motif. Reading Erma's books, it was like getting a behind the scenes glimpse of a world I wanted so badly to enter. However, her books were published in the 70s and now that I'm ac [...]

    • In her second book of essays inspired by her weekly "Chick Wit" column, Lisa Scottoline does it again. A complete home run, as she dishes about extraordinary moments in the life of an ordinary woman.She shares tidbits, and then her daughter Francesca writes an occasional chapter in which she talks about about life from her perspective—a New York single woman who has a unique relationship with her mother.Also joining the romp is Mother Mary, Scottoline's 86-year-old mother who is down-to-earth [...]

    • Despite the fact that I am a voracious mystery reader, this is my first Lisa Scottoline book--and it is a memoir of her first few years after her daughter moves out into her own apartment in New York City.It is obvious that after the period of transition, both Lisa and her daughter established new boundaries and new life styles and stayed friends. . in fact, the stories are really fun to read. I recommend this to anyone who wants to just sit down and enjoy a book--it is light, fun and close to h [...]

    • My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space by Lisa Scottiline is a breezy trip through the author's relationships with her daughter and her mother.It is funny and witty and just the thing to pop into your purse when going to the doctor or the dentist. It will relieve your stress. The short chapters tell little bits of the author's life. I read most of it when I was totally exhausted yet I kept turning the pages. She is one of my favorite mystery writers after all.What surprises me is tha [...]

    • You know how some authors are ones that you know you could sit and have a cup of coffee or a beer with and laugh and talk about you life? You know you would have a great time together. Lisa Scottoline is one of those authors for me. Whenever I read one of her non-fiction books like this one I always think, "I want to be this woman's friend." I'm sure most of her readers have that exact same thought. She's just so dang funny, and I can relate to so many of the everyday things she writes about-her [...]

    • Who would have guessed that Lisa Scottoline could write humor - and read it aloud - so well? I have long been a fan of her mystery novels but was unaware that she also writes humor. This was an entertaining audiobook to walk the levee by.

    • Lisa strikes gold again. I love reading her books. They're such nice little slices of life. The stories range from her. animals to normal every day nucances such as car troubles to home repairs. I'd recommend to anyone who just wants a laugh.

    • Funny and entertaining. Now I may check out some of her mystery series. Also I read this as a book, not a Cd, I don't know how that happened.

    • This is the second book from Lisa Scottoline that is made up of a collection of essays from her "Chick Wit" column in the Philadelphia Inquirer. I can only hope that there will be lots more. While this book is absolutely perfect for me, fits right in with my age group, going through the same thing, I don't think that it's appeal is just for middle aged women whose children have moved out. While listening to this book, my 21 year old daughter was also in the car, and she found it just as funny as [...]

    • Hot on the heels of her immensely popular, "Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog", Lisa and her daughter Francesca team up to tell readers more about their family secrets.The stories are only 2 to 3 pages long and can easily be put down and picked up without losing any continuity, although putting the book down may be a problem.The book somewhat mirrors her first book in that both ladies tell stories about their lives. Mother Mary, a cantankerous octogenarian, will not reveal her recipe for tomato [...]

    • This novel was a definite fun, quick summer read. I picked it up on a whim while at WalMart with a few friends and am quite glad I did. Ms. Scottoline and her daughter are both interesting, quirky and relatable women who easily made me smile with their charming and amusing dialect. My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space requires much less commitment in comparison to the book I regularly read and I thoroughly appreciated that. I could leave off at any time or point within the book and [...]

    • This is the first book that I had read by Scottoline. I knew that she was a mystery writer and would have never anticipated such a sense of humor. I listened to this as an audiobook. It is read by the authors, mother and daughter. Some of my appreciation is that Ms. Scottoline and I are about the same age, with daughters about the same age. So much of what she was writing about struck home with me. However, I get the feeling that she has a lot more control over how she spends her days than I do, [...]

    • "My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space" is a book of humorous essays, written mostly by Scottoline and occasionally by her daughter, the nest emptier. Her humor rotates between her love for her dogs (five of them,) her failed marriages (two of those), her relationship with her daughter, her dear "Mother Mary" and her own insecurities. Less laugh-aloud than Erma Bombeck, and more dead-pan like Ellen Degeneres, Scottoline writes humor that everyone (even this 1-man woman who hasn't ev [...]

    • Sweet story. I listened to the audio version which was narrated by the author. It was like hanging out with a girlfriend, maybe going for a long walk and catching up. She told quirky stories, funny anecdotes, and self revelations that make you feel like she's either been in your head, or your mother's!

    • This was a very funny book about Lisa and her daughter Francesca's next phase of life together. It was so well read by the author and I loved the stories, so many that are relatable. I guess my only question is, do all American women authors have dogs?? Only reason it's a 4 star. Ugh!!

    • I really enjoyed all three HUMOROUS books. They are great on audio book for the commute to work out a long drive. These are not at all like her usual crime novels. Her daughter is bright and funny, too.

    • What a fun book! Lisa and her daughter, Francesca write stories of their everyday lives in a very transparent and open manner. I found myself laughing out loud as Lisa describes the antics of her beloved pets, the Big TV she bought for the house as a Christmas Present and so many witty tales of her empty nest when Francesca moves out, along with stories of her zany mother, a.k.a. "Mother Mary." Life is never boring as she discusses friendships, cars and missing her daughter, and of course her wr [...]

    • This was a great book to listen to as I took my daily walks. My neighbors may have thought I had lost my mind, as I was giggling out loud on more than one occasion. Lots of fun, family stories. I would recommend this to anyone between the ages of 20-86. There are stories from Francesca ( Lisa's daughter) and from Mother Mary( Lisa's 86 yo mother. The book was published in 2010, so admittedly all are older now. Still, some really fun and funny stories.

    • This audio book was written by Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca. I laughed out loud several times as Lisa talked about middle age and her daughter about coming of age. It was a witty look at life from two women who were together for 24 moving into different stages of their life. Very funny

    • Love, love, love this collection of real issues women, mothers, sisters and daughters experience. I laughed so hard, so often that I began reading more slowly to savor the delectable wording, imagery and the absolute realism of womanhood this mother and daughter penned. I'm so grateful to my friend, Amy who recommended it to me!

    • I can't believe that she thought brushing her teeth in the kitchen sink was causing spots on her dishes in the dishwashere really thinks that the water in the dishwasher comes from the drain? I found this book boring. Don't bother.

    • Totally Relatable! Totally Relatable! Is that a word? Must be because spell check let it flyLisa Scottoline writes from the heart about real life. I love these books!
