    “All pop novels ought to be as hard to put down as Marrying Mom”—from theNew York Times bestselling author of The First Wives Club (People). When Phyllis Geronomous decides to relocate from Florida to New York to be very (very) close to her grown children, panic erupts. She’s witty, she’s decisive, and she’s very (very) difficult. The kids decide to take matters into their own hands and start a search for a generous gentleman of means—regardless of criminal record—to take their mom off of their hands and out of state. Starting with a makeover and a suite at a swanky hotel for mom, siblings Sigourney, Bruce, and Sharon put their plan into action. “The premise is pure TV farce, fueled by Goldsmith’s clever dialogue and acerbic one-liners . . . Goldsmith steers the principals to an ultra-happy ending and an inescapable conclusion: all families are dysfunctional, but every dysfunctional family is wacky in its own way” (Publishers Weekly). “A raucous comedy . . . Goldsmith keeps readers laughing . . . [She] has scored another hot book and showed us yet another side of her versatile personality.”—Naples Daily News
