Summary

The morning of her niece's wedding, Margo Just drinks a double martini and contemplates the many mistakes she's made in her fifty-odd years of life. Spending three decades in love with a wonderful but unattainable man is pretty high up on her list of missteps, as is a long line of unsuccessful love affairs accompanied by a seemingly endless supply of delicious cocktails.
When the young bride flees - taking with her a family heirloom and leaving behind six hundred bewildered guests - her mother offers Margo fifty grand to retrieve her spoiled brat of a daughter and the invaluable property she stole. So, together with the bride's jilted and justifiably crabby fiancé, Margo sets out in a borrowed 1955 red MG on a cross-country chase. Along the way, none of what she discovers will be quite what she expected. But it might be exactly what she's been seeking all along.
From acclaimed humor writer Jane Lotter comes this madcap, laugh-out-loud adventure, The Bette Davis Club.

enjoyable

I enjoyed listening to this story & I would recommend it. It goes between modern day back through the main character's history so that her personality develops throughout the story. There's a good amount of excitement & intrigue to keep interested.

Great holiday read

Excellent fun with thoughtful insights. You need to suspend belief a little with the storyline; a bit cliché and completely improbable. Well read and easy listening with a happy ending.

Worth the credit?

This book is not a five star, your life won't be complete if you don't read it kind of thing..... It is an adventure with many quirky personalities . I enjoyed the ride and I do believe it was worth the credit. Modern-day romance and adventure. I enjoyed it🚘🍸🍦

Sharp, Clever and Elegant... and funny as hell!

This is the story of a life changing adventure. It is unavoidably feminine and could rightly be branded as "chic lit." But it is also an intriguing, historical, cultural and delightful tale that is bound to keep you up late. (I would say heart warming, but whenever I read a review with those two words, I cringe.)

Mostly I read mystery novels. But there are common denominators that make up a 5 star experience for me. Charasmatic characters, characters I am instantly drawn to. Clever banter and intrigue. Great narration. The Bette Davis Club has all of these.

There are three cultural aspects that heavily influence the novel. Hollywood wealth and power. New York relationships. And a curious and hillarious view of the Dinah Shore Classic weekend in Palm Springs.

I am also grateful to the author for introducing me to Colleen Moore 's Fairy Castle. I am a former model railroader, so I looked up this masterpiece and was mesmorized.

Regardless of your favorite genre, give yourself a treat and listen to this book!
