Rising media star and lifestyle blogger Grace Stanton's own life gets torpedoed after she drives her cheating husband's pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool in a fit of anger. Soon she's locked out of her own palatial home, checking account, and blog, forced to move in with her widowed mother who lives above, and owns, The Sandbar, a rundown beach bar. Attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with a group of three other women, marital misfits whose only common denominator is betrayal, Grace and the women soon ditch their therapist and move their Wednesday "Ladies Night" sessions to The Sandbox. They begin to help each other, walking a fine line between revenge and justice, as each one finds closure in ways previously unimagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and how strong she needs to be to get there? Told with Mary Kay Andrews' unique blend of humor, heart, and unpredictable plot twists, Ladies' Night will have you raising a glass and cheering these characters on.
