In How to Kill Your Husband, a novel, Aussie Caroline Lee performs in a slow, simple manner as she tells the story of Jazz Jardine, who is in prison for killing her husband, and Jazz’s middle-aged friends’ attempts to secure her exoneration. The set-up, of course, is just the English muffin; the butter is the musing on family, love, and age. This would make a good gift to a friend who is - or should be - divorced.
Sexy, funny, and wise, Kathy Lette's irresistible new novel is about women not Having It All but Doing It All. It's about how today's mother is often a married lone parent. It's about the fact that no woman has ever shot her husband while he was vacuuming. This is Kathy Lette at her brilliant best, casting her trademark caustic eye on what goes on in the bedrooms and kitchens of ordinary married couples. A novel that will strike a cord with married women everywhere and ensure that, from now on, they all read the small print on their marriage licences.

Funny and very rude, loved it
I haven’t read any Kathy Lette books for a very long while. The title caught my eye and I thought, well, why not. This isn’t a book for men, but oh my goodness nearly every woman I know will resonate to the situations In which our heroine finds herself. The reader, Australian Caroline Lee, is perfect, and the couples therapy scene had me laughing hysterically. Great fun.

Absolutely hideous on so many levels
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I vaguely remember reading a Kathy Lette book in my teens and I had a recollection of it being quite funny. So either teenage me was very easily pleased or Lette's writing has slipped but this is painful to listen to; I'm now allergic to similes after I assume the author was trying to win a bet as to how many awful ones she could fit into a sentence and still get it past her editor. Lame storyline, unlikeable characters and I only stuck with as I assumed (wrongly) that it might get better.

How to kill a story line
I read reviews of this book and expected to laugh from start to finish. Sadly, no. This is less of a book and more of a series of one liners (many of which you could see coming a mile away). The result is a thin plot, under developed characters and a book I couldn't wait to be done with. Don't waste the credit.

This book was recommended by audible , I assume because I read all the books of Liane Moriarty which I loved. Hoping that this book will be somehow similar I bought it. How disappointing and tedious this book was. I did not finish it either. The only good thing about this book was the excellent narration by Caroline Lee but even this could not induce me to finish the book.
Kathy Lettes humor is not my kind of humor and I find she is trying to hard to be funny. The story line did not grab me and I lost interest after one third of the book.
