Triple Shot Betty is hilarious. I was not expecting it to be so funny. Jody Gehrman has a great sense of humor and it works wonderfully in the novel. The June 17th entry would have to be my favorite aswell as when I was laughing the hardest. I could barely hold the book steady to keep reading I was laughing so much. Go to the bookstore, read that entry and you'll have to have the book.

Aside from the humor, the book was extremely well written and fluid. I was captivated from the start and felt like I really knew each character. Each Betty is different from the others, and I was able to relate to each of them. I felt they were all equally presented, even with the narration coming from just one.

Triple Shot Betty is fun and original and a book that I highly recommend. I am so glad this book has a sequel in the works, Triple Shot Bettys in Love. I can't wait to join the Bettys for more fun and laughter!
