Description from the publisher:
After ditching her cheating, no-good lying, jerk of a fiance at the doors to the alter, Scarlett Lynn Summers aka Red is lost...but not for too long. Thanks to her spunky best friend, she won't stay under her covers hiding for long. Barging in with guns a blazin and curses a flyin, Mary Lou drags Red out for a weekend worth of adventures that just might be more than she bargains for.

This is the first book in the new Like a Lady series.  They will need to be read in order.

I don’t know if it was the author’s inspiration for this book, but I keep humming the Miranda Lambert song – a personal favorite, actually.  I could just imagine Mary Lou saying every word of this to Red after her wedding day imploded.  Not only does Mary Lou manage the impossible – getting Red out of bed, showered, and in clean clothes for the first time in weeks, she manages to get Red to go out of the house to a lake party…. where all of her old dreams just may come to real life.  Now don’t ya’all wish you had a friend like Mary Lou – oh wait, you have ME!!

Of course, I have to admit the fact that there was a Mary Lou in this story was a big plus for me.  Lisas, Julies, and Cheryls all can find their names easily in books – not so much for the Mary Lous and Suzannes in the world  (me and my sister).

Wonderful names or not, I have to tell you that I freaking loved this story.  It was down-to-earth and still sexy.  Red (Scarlett) is sweet and naïve with a jerk of an ex.  This story is a reminder that when one door closes, another more beautiful one will open.  Sometimes you have to be thankful that your plans don’t work.

I need the next book in this series (I heard there will be four in total).  S.J. please don’t lose my name!
