    This is one of those stories that walks a fine line between amusement and nonsense.I quite liked Marie s narrative She is a delightful character while neurotic, she has those truly amazing lapses of sweetness She s like a mix of Bridget Jones with Liz Lemon, if those two were italians and lesbians Speaking of italians, Marie s family, which constitutes most of the list of secondary characters, is also great They are balanced enough not to deviate too much from the main plot, but at the same time [...]

    Lambda Literary Award Finalist.Climb aboard this hilarious roller coaster ride where Marie is left wishing out was the new in , and where every lounge chair is a hot seat when the Santora family ventures this close to the equator The island of Jamaica just may not be big enough

    This book actually made me laugh out loud Some may say the story is a bit farfetched, but it s so entertaining, fun, sweet, exciting, crazy, that it really doesn t matter I loved reading this book and I just could t put it down.

    It was a fun read Finished it in one day I thought the storyline was a little unbelieveble, but it kept me entertained It was rather funny, with lots of light drama and a great love story thrown in the mix.

    Like I m going to give my own book anything less than a great review I THINK NOT Would love to hear from you if you enjoyed the book not so much if you didn t and please, if you dare, come back for part two of the crazy saga in the sequel CAMPTOWN LADIES

    I m giving this a five purely based on writing quality I love SanGiovanni s prose and all her very different but very alive characters, especially ever member of the Santora family I love seeing a lesfic novel that isn t COMPLETELY about the romance reading a queer book that acknowledges that you can still love a family that doesn t completely support you being queer millionaire lesbian MC and not in a typical millionaire romance, either family drama, family drama, family drama Lorn s dilemma of [...]

    This is such a great book I didnt realise i really like this book so much until the end i was like what It finished already I have to admit though, at the start the narrations was so long i thought i might going to quit until it really get into the story that i started to enjoy and I m glad i was still keep going tho Because i really enjoy this book I love both main characters they are so good together Oh and i really love uncle Tony speech.

    4.5 starsF F romanceWitty and family centered screwball comedyWhy hasn t the script for this one been turned into a film Because, damn Guaranteed good time It definitely plays out like a movie in your head.Moreover, this one is mainstream appealing because fun and lovable characters, a witty narrative voice, and a sweet romance will cross all boundaries every time Like the queer edition of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Italian style Same kooky madcap family chaos with a sweet romance tied in Granted [...]

    Mari s book is such a hoot I recently read this hilarious book by Mari SanGiovanni I knew from the title Greetings from Jamaica Wish You were Queer this book was going to be funny and that it would probably challenge the mindset of some traditional folks.While the story seems to be an autobiography of the author s life, I still can t say for sure if all these crazy things actually happened to Mari She might have been awarded millions of dollars in the settlement of her grandmother s estate, but [...]

    Now this is a madcap romp that runs into the realm of farce without falling into absurdity SanGiovanni keeps the humour and plot flowing at a great pace and it did make me laugh aloud The narrator, Marie Santora, inherits her grandmother s fortune and it changes her life whether for the better is to be determined She and her siblings decide to placate their dysfunctional family to Jamaica for a family vacation to soften them up before they tell them how the money will be divided In the meantime, [...]

    It took me a while to get into the book, but I liked it just enough to keep me going until I was hooked Not really my thing, but I definitely got a few chuckles out of it I think the trick for me was to let the voice become that of a NJ Italian woman, then it was a lot easier to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the story and all its exaggerated characters The one criticism I can give that has little to do with personal taste, is that the protagonist s love interest I m being as vague as possible [...]

    Nicole
    THis book had some really funny parts, which were easy and entertaining to read The romance part however was very strained, and almost seemed like it was written by a different author The two themes romance and comedy seemed in conflict with each other, as if the styles didn t sync very well together I think I would enjoy writing by this author, but without pushing too hard in an area that she clearly didn t feel as comfortable writing meaning the actual kiss face, lets get it on parts They wer [...]

    A fanfic released commercially The plot is tedious, characters lack complex personalities, are rather stereotypical hateful yet lustful ex gf, doofus protagonist, yay go for it, sista sibling, etc and are humorously clumsy too often.If you like this, you ll probably like Alix Valerie too These two books have many things in common.

    Lisa
    Cute, funny, romantic and a fast read This is apparently Mari s debut novel However, there also appear to be two other titles that were never published Story is charming, but stereotypical characters subtract with their overreaching antics I found several areas that ran long and others too short Worthy of a light, summer beach read Hoping Camptown Ladies, Mari s second third, fourth shows deeper character development If nothing else, it promises to be mindless fun.

    Perry
    I would definitely recommend this book as a great, fun read I did laugh out loud, especially in the first few chapters I m kind of a hard grader, so unless it is Sarah Waters quality or I stay up way too late reading a book, most of my ratings won t go beyond four stars Comedy is hard especially to write , and this author did a great job I ll be looking forward to reading her next one.

    Christy Stewart
    SanGiovanni get s a 5 star rating just for the fact she doesn t have to force sarcasm and wit That s one in a million For writing loveable characters that don t even annoy ME Give her a, I don t know, what s an award for books Emmy Give her that.Also, the book was sweet and romantic.

    Jeanne
    funny, smart, entertaining a rare book in lesbian fiction that SUCCESSFULLY mixes humor, romance, and story telling ya know often the humor falls short or not much back story drags a bit sometimes in middle but few books don t will definitely read this again I strongly related to main character and still trying to decide if that s a good thing or a bad thing.

    Sandy
    I wasn t sure about this one at the beginning It was a bit of over the top Italian family farce It got better as it went on, especially after they got to Jamaica The humor felt forced sometimes I d say it s a good beach read.

    Linh Nguyen
    I love this kind of romance sweet, light hearted and fucking hilarious I just adore Marie for all her weirdness god bless her imaginations , her bravery and devotion toward the people she loves It was no surprise that I finished this book in less than a day.

    Maria Ciletti
    I really enjoyed this book It was a joy to read and funny in all the right places Being from a Italian family, I could definetly relate to the main character I highly recomend this book and look forward to reading the author s next book.

    When a book tells you your going to laugh out loud while reading it, I never believe thembut, I have to say that there were moments when laughter escaped my mouth Overall it was just another cheesy lesbian book but, totally worth my time.g a cheesy lesbian and all myself.

    Linda
    Being from an Italian family myself, I could relate easily to some of these family dynamics A fun and easy read, with some truly laugh out loud antics Thanks Mari

    Melody
    This book will make you laugh out loud Excellent book

    Wendy
    This was a pretty funny book I just loved the family

    Kathleen
    it was an okay read But I found myself skipping paragraphs irrelevant to the plot to just get to the end and see what happens.

    Debbie
    I think it was great It definately gave an understanding picture of how hard it can be for one not to be out I also enjoyed that the family was involved in the story.

    Ulla
    This novel is a rarity a really funny book from beginning to end, well written, well thought out I recommend it cheered me up tremendously.

    Chris Godwaldt
    Great easy read Enjoyable banter and a nice skip across the pages.

    Kim Taylor-Blakemore
    Very very funny Great dialogue and characterization of all the members of a lovable and crazy Italian family
