Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the prose is witty. A campy look at modern Americana that involves lots of Margarita's, trips to Costco and Facebook stalking, the upbeat feel of the novel is one of its strong points." - Publisher's Weekly

"I love the character of Lucy. Her voice is very strong. Readers would definitely enjoy a chick-lit romance read like this..." - Amazon.com Vine reviewer

"Writing with a face-paced, witty and often slapstick prose, there is a fun-loving, self-deprecating, almost stream of consciousness tone to the writing that sucks the reader in and makes Lucy the most lovable of characters, despite her obvious flaws. Clearly, there are some deeper issues that Naples is tackling underneath all the fun and conveys a story about transformation that can resonate with anyone. Rachel Naples will have you laughing your way through this heartwarming antidote to Jerry Maguire and the need for a mate to complete you." - Chick Lit Central

"I thought this book was hilarious. I loved that each chapter was a different process of doing laundry...a perfect touch. Very excited for the author's next story." - Chick Lit Plus

"Score one for correcting a burden men have had to bear ever since,"you complete me", was spoken in the great Jerry Maguire. No one completes anyone and finally having a literate woman say that makes a dent in the consciousness of everyone to wake the #€*% up!
Ms Naples moves into clever and funny details of the travails we all encounter when we have relationships.
So true do we all carry these ideas of what we think we need only to find out that the idea, no make that idea’s, we have are mostly wrong. Dirty Laundry made me empathize and cheer Lucy as she goes through the spin cycle of life and comes out the other side... Neatly pressed. Well, not exactly but that's what appealed to me as a guy. It was messy and didn't promise happily ever after. Which makes it easier for me to know there will be women out there who will be moved to think like the new Lucy. An idea that is life is about adapting, with humor or whatever else we have at our fingertips and that our inner selves are our soul mates first and what makes us us is the detergent..and we are, "stronger than dirt".

Remember that dream? You know the one.. 'naked without your homework', can't find your keys and the parking lot is flooding... what we fear as a worst nightmare scenario usually turns out to be 'the best thing that ever happened' ~ because we change! It is said that we teach best what we most need to learn... and the heroine of Dirty Laundry dances that 'tightrope-at-gunpoint' with skill, clumsiness, and the perfectly-timed 'whoops' that make this light, hilarious and heart-reaching. Rachel's writing style is insightful and witty, her descriptions are palpable, her sense of humor spot on, making this truly a 'curl up and have a great read' experience. What is life without a little laundry? If you're not doing laundry, you're not living! A really fun read that will leave you with a smile on your face!

Dirty Laundry is a fast-paced read that invites the reader to drop the idea that a woman needs a man to complete her. The characters are wonderfully engaging and animated. The story will have you laughing, and sometimes cringing, as Lucy Stars is challenged by a whirlwind of events beyond her control; compelled to learn and grow from past mistakes while making a few new ones along the way. This is the most entertaining book I've read in ages!

Lucy has a great life that she loves. Her husband, Kraft, is a life coach who is very attractive and wealthy. Lucy has a podcast which she runs from her home called Lucy's Love Letters where she talks to callers about their relationship problems. Everything is going great until her husband walks in and says he wants a divorce. As if that isn't bad enough, the microphone is on and all Lucy's listeners hear her getting dumped.

The opening of this story is pretty sad with Lucy's life getting "ruined" but it is humorous throughout the book. I did like the way the author took Lucy from being a fairly insignificant woman to a strong, successful person with a conscience.

After getting dumped on-air Lucy comes up with some tips on how to decide if a guy is really a good one to stay with and shares them with her listeners. These tips work for Lucy and many of her listeners but may not be for everyone.

I liked the twist in the story making getting dumped a good thing for Lucy. How she handles the public humiliation and talking about her tips make her very popular and get her a book deal. Her friend and agent, Kam, is also a big factor in Lucy getting speaking engagements and the book deal. Life is good for her again.

This was a very interesting story which I enjoyed but I'm not sure I loved it as much as others out there. There were times I had a hard time following the story because it would go back in time then be in present tense. That could have been because I was reading it on an ereader and the formatting could have been off, but it was confusing for me.

Are you a Rules girl? You know what I’m talking about. Dating rules. Strategic tricks for snagging Mr. McPerfect. Let’s see… Don’t call the guy. If he wants to talk, he’ll call you. Don’t be too available. Never accept a date unless you’re asked at least three days in advance. Let the man be the aggressor. Actually, no, let him think he’s the aggressor. Pretend you are hard-to-get, and go ahead, play some good old fashioned mind games. In 1995, Sherrie Schneider and Ellen Fein published the The Rules: Time-tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right. The book generated strong reactions in the American public. Many readers were scandalized, finding the book’s guidelines sexist, antiquated, too rigid, flat-out ridiculous. Others were inspired, finally having their own how-to guide, a step by step manual on how to land their dreamboat. Seminars popped up across the nation, success stories were shared, and just like that, “Rules girls” were born.

Well my friends, Rachel Naples has given us a new kind of Rules girl with a brand new set of wacky, idiosyncratic, bass-ackward rules. In her new novel, Dirty Laundry, Naples presents Lucy Stars, a relationship expert with her own radio show, a platform where she provides advice to those searching for or struggling to keep their significant others. Lucy is in a great position to provide this advice since she herself is in such a wonderful, blissful relationship. Her husband, Kraft Conroy, is a life coach and also the man of her dreams. Married for ten years, living in a beautiful home, she and Kraft couldn’t be happier. Or so Lucy thinks.

The book opens as Lucy prepares to go on-air for her radio show, which she conveniently conducts from her very own kitchen.
