You Can't Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit by Sharon Phennah

Okay, I admit it!  When I first saw the photo, I loved it. It was the photo and the title that got me sold. I selected it to read right away.

Oh, the cover, I'm trying to find words for the that wonderful enchanting painting of three active elderly women who don't give a hoot dancing in the rain.  If that was a snapshat of my friends and me, I'd frame it!  There's something whimisical and endearing about this cover.
This book was hilarous.  It made me think of The Golden Girls.  I love all the characters!  I sure hope to have a life like those friends who are loyal and true to each other depsite of their flaws.
I have never laughed so hard in a long time with a book.  This book was for a light and feel good reading.  The only problem I had was towards the last 1/4 part of the book.  It seemed to drag on, less humour and I was NOT happy with the ending.
As for the rest of the book, it was easy to follow along and be part of the friends.  LOVE the bantering between the friends.

I love how the author was able to convey that the older we get, we're still spunky, likely to get into trouble, have a life at that age. Life gets much interesting when we get older.

Oh! Oh!  How could I forget?  As a pet lover myself, there are pets involved, so be sure to tuned into your secret animal language when you read the book!

Because of the way the book was dragging towards the end and how it ended, I'm going to give it a high 3 3/4 stars.

I received this hilarous ARC from Boutique of Quality Books Publishing through Net Galley in exchange for my honest review. Thanks for the laughs!
