1. 'The Bette Davis Club'
If you're looking for a laugh-out-loud funny book, this madcap adventure will fit the bill. On the morning of her niece's wedding, Margo wakes up and drinks a martini, thinking about all of her past mistakes. Being in love with an unattainable man for 30 years is right up there, but before she could feel bad for herself for too long, her niece decides to become a runaway bride - and steals a priceless family heirloom as she makes her exit. 

Her mother offers Margo $50,000 to bring her daughter back, and she enlists the help of the newly jilted fiancé. What ensues is a cross-country, hilarious journey with self-discovery and misadventures.
