Book Club Friday #25

How is September almost close to being over? This year is FLYING by.
 
It's gonna be Christmas before we know it!
 
Linking up with Heather and Katie, as usual. :)
 
 
This week, I'm sharing Worth Lying For by Lisa Cheney.
 
This book was recommended to me by my sweet friend, Becca. It was a free kindle book when I got it, but I believe it is now $2.99.
 

Book description from GoodReads:

GOOD LIFE
Mary Minke knows she should be grateful: a mostly happy marriage, mostly grown kids and a mostly steady paycheck. But at forty, she finds herself fantasizing about sprawling Tuscan villas and fitting into 'juniors department' fashions. Instead, another twenty years in a two-bedroom ranch, sale-rack slacks and a receptionist job at Idid-a-Rod Auto Garage seem to be her destiny. Until...

GOOD GRIEF
Mary stumbles on a bag of cash in the car of two-bit drug dealer Jimmy Adler... and steals it. Confiding in best friend, Caryn, she vows to make good by playing Robin Hood in the sleepy town of Stillwater Village. Only she must keep the plan under wraps from devoted husband, Nick, who just happens to be the local sheriff.

GOOD INTENTIONS
As one unexpected event after another turns Mary's once tapioca-bland life hotter than three-alarm chili, she is more than a little tempted to indulge in a few retail therapy sessions. Charity begins at home, after all, but where should it end? When the fate of her imperfect yet loving family is put on the line, Mary must decide what the good life really means, and if it is Worth Lying For.

My thoughts:

This book was such a fun read! The characters are hilarious, and very easy to relate to. I appreciate that in a book. Although I got the book for free, I would definitely recommend paying for it. It's well worth it, promise.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
