    1. Since Lisa Maria has a hard time cleaning up her own messy life, she opts to clean up other people's messes as a maid'Household Assistant' and as an advice columnist. This selection lacked a little oomph, but I'm hoping that it is because it is a segue to Lisa Maria Takes Off.


    2. I read this witty little book in an evening. While I'd imagined it would be your typical light chicklit sort of book, it had the zing of a Janet Evanovich in terms of the mother-daughter-sister-father family dynamic. Quite a fun read, well-written and not altogether unrealistic.


    3. Really cute read. In hindsight, I probably should've read this one before Lisa Maria Takes Off, but oh well. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
