Stormy Weather - Geri Buckley. Can't beat the monster-in-law in this book, she is witty. I am impressed with this humorous look into the life of a married woman, the crazy family she has and the stink of a husband of hers. Books related to Stormy Weather.

In the Florida Panhandle having just turned fifty and being married to the same man for thirty of them, Vonda Kay Thayer looks forward to the future with her husband as she believes they live the American dream. Vonda also fantasizes of the time when their teens move on as empty nest sounds heavenly even though her in-law will still be there. Everything changes when she catches Jerome cheating. Upset, Vonda decides to move on without him though she has two teenage daughters (Charlotte and Caroline) and a crusty mother-in-law at home.

However, before she tests her new vision, twin responsibilities leap into her lap. First her pregnant oldest daughter Amelie returns to the already insane fold followed by her ailing father-in-law. When a hurricane hammers the Panhandle, Vonda takes charge of her suddenly expanded family insuring everyone remains safe.

With a chick lit feel even without asides and the dreaded lists, STORMY WEATHER is an amusing yet poignant family drama. Vonda is a superb lead character caught in the eye of the storm even before the hurricane hits. She and the rest of the household and the "douche bag" spouse are fully developed so fans will believe in her ability to take charge during a crisis. Geri Buckley combines humor with seriousness inside an aptly named contemporary tale.

I loooove Chick Lit, so then why did it take me so long to read this one? I got this when it was first released and it sat here. I am sorry I didn't pick it up sooner. This is just the perfect book for us "older" Chick Lit lovers as it discusses events that seem to happen to us as we age. The perfect book for the summer.

This was a wonderful story that pulled me in from the first lines. Beautiful imagery, a compelling heroine coming into her own at age 50 and a fun, quirky town of characters that completely captures our off beat style of life in the South! I wanted to slap her cheating husband and spoiled children silly and really understood her position in life. Caring for children, cantankerous in laws and trying to raise strong young daughters caused her to lose herself for far too many years. A Hurricane aided her in making the decisions that she had avoided for far too long and put her firmly on the path of her own happy ending! I finished reading it by lantern light as Hurricane Michael bore down on our present day South, leaving pain and heartache in it's path. I was thankful to have this great book to escape into and I've already loaned it out! Too good not to share!
