Ladies’ Night

Mary Kay Andrews. St. Martin’s, $25.99 (400p) ISBN 978-1-250-01965-3

Grace Stanton’s elegant lifestyle blog, Gracenotes, has grown into a lucrative business, thanks to her popular recipes and decorating and craft ideas, in Andrews’s latest (after Spring Fever). But when she discovers that her husband and her assistant are having an affair, her life and career both collapse in a moment. Moving back in with her mother, Grace fights her husband, who’s intent on betraying her further by locking her out of their house and seizing their bank accounts, taking control of Gracenotes, and sabotaging her online reputation. His bad behavior is aided and abetted by notorious woman-hating judge Stackpole, who does nothing to defend Grace and sends her to a divorce recovery group run by a hapless counselor. Grace quickly builds friendships with the members of her recovery group—and begins a romance with the sole male attendee. She also investigates the curious behavior of the judge and her counselor, and starts a new blog to document her stylish restoration of a Florida cottage. Bestseller Andrews is at the top of her game, delivering a smart, funny perfect-for-summer read with a hopeful heart. Agent: Stuart Krichevsky, the Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency. (June 4)
