      Hi I m twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles Can t trust those cameras or mirrors either Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who ve made me laugh and given me story ideas than I could ever write My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my best friend He s even willing to eat fast food and help with the laundry while I finish one chapter Life is good and I am blessed Reading has been a passion since I was five years old and figured out those were words on book pages As soon as my chubby little fingers found they could put words on a Big Chief tablet with a fat pencil, I was on my way Writing joined reading in my list of passions I will read anything from the back of the Cheerio s box to Faulkner and love every bit of it In addition to reading I enjoy cooking, my family and the ocean I love the Florida beaches Listening to the ocean waves puts my writing brain into high gear.I love writing romance because it s about emotions and relationships Human nature hasn t changed a bit since Eve coveted the fruit in the Garden of Eden Settings change Plots change Names change Times change But love is love and men and women have been falling in and out of it forever Romance is about emotions love, hate, anger, laughter all of it If I can make you laugh until your sides ache or grab a tissue then I ve touched your emotions and accomplished what every writer sets out to do.I got serious about writing when my third child was born and had her days and nights mixed up I had to stay up all night anyway and it was very quiet so I invested in a spiral back notebook and sharpened a few pencils The story that emerged has never sold but it s brought in enough rejection slips to put the Redwood Forest on the endangered list In 1997 Kensington bought two books for their Precious Gems line Two years and six books later the line died with only four of those books seeing publication But by then Avalon had bought a book and another, and another Ten years later the list has grown to thirty nine Last year Sourcebooks bought the Lucky Series which is in the bookstores now They ve also bought The Honky Tonk Series which will debut with I LOVE THIS BAR in June and will be followed by HELL, YEAH, MY GIVE A DAMN S BUSTED, and HONKY TONK CHRISTMAS.Folks ask me where I get my ideas Three kids, fifteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren Note I was a very young grandmother Life is a zoo around here when they all come home In one Sunday afternoon there s enough ideas to keep me writing for years and years Seriously, ideas pop up at the craziest times When one sinks its roots into my mind, I have no choice but to write the story And while I m writing the characters peek over my shoulder and make sure I m telling it right and not exaggerating too much Pesky little devils, they are I have a wonderful agent, Erin Niumata, who continues to work magic and sell my work I m very lucky to have her and my editors who continue to believe in me.Happy reading

    1. The main character, Trudy, finds out that her husband has been cheating on her for their entire 20-year marriage. She then finds out that she has inherited her late aunt's house, so she moves into it to start over. Turns out that she has also inherited an assload of money, and she's got a handy and handsome next-door neighbor who remodels her house from top to bottom, makes all new furniture for her, plans the perfect birthday weekend for her, and doesn't care how fat she is. Which turns out not [...]


    2. Reading this was like watching a bad Lifetime movie on TV. None of the dialogue or characters were very interesting and the only one who showed any sort of intelligence was Billy Lee. Good idea for a plot but it just fell flat, it went nowhere page after page and then in the last chapter, everything comes together quickly. I wanted to give up after the first 50 pages but I really thought it would get better. It didn't.


    3. I loved this book from start to finish. Watching Trudy take charge of her life was both hilarious and touching, and every woman deserves a Billy Lee of her very own. The transformation of Aunt Gert's old house into a brand new home for Trudy neatly paralleled the changes that Trudy was making in her own life and her growing awareness of Billy Lee as something more than just a friend. I laughed out loud when I realized that Aunt Gert had made good on her promise to hide her money under faithless [...]


    4. Ok. It's not Shakespeare. It won't win a Pulitzer. And, I've certainly read better. But, Ladies Room has its endearing moments and I found it to be highly entertaining and a fast read. Trudy, a middle-aged woman who has been emotionally absent for far too long, finally gets a clue when she is punched in the face with the reality that she's been living her life with a cheating husband. She's been the obedient little housewife doing the Stepford wife-thing while the world revolves without her part [...]


    5. SUPER quick and easy read. And after finishing Sweet Gum Tree and The Ladies' Room in just a week, I think I have a favorite genre. Sassy Southern ladies who make it happen themselves!


    6. This book wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be based on the first line of the summary. "Secrets told in the church ladies' room It's so much better!Trudy is attending the funeral of her great-aunt, Gert, when she realizes that she can't wait for the service to conclude to visit the ladies room. Hilarity ensues as she tries to squeeze her "fat rear end" (her words, not mine) past all the somber people in the pew. Once there, she desperately fumbles with her control top panty hose and p [...]


    7. Okay, I did not like this book at all. I thought I would - but yeah, I didn't.I kind of wish I never saw this book on my kindle but then again I'm also kind of glad that I got it out of my system and off my TBR.The Ladies Room is about Trudy and her god awful family and two-timing cheating bastard of a husband. Trudy somehow gets extremely lucky and get's her dead aunt's house and a large sum of money. Then everything magically gets better for her?!?! I'm sorry BUT WHAT?!First, she meets her han [...]


    8. Call this a "life's too short" DNF. I was mighty tempted to stick it out just for the sake of sticking it out, but I wasn't enjoying it at all, and why am I going to read something that I'm dragging through? I selected this book on a whim as my December '12 Kindle Library selection because I was almost the end of the month, and it had a synopsis that sounded like a relaxing, fluffy romance. If I had bothered to read a sample, I would have never selected it. Trudy is supposed to be 40, but she's [...]


    9. This is what a Feminist looks like This line constantly comes to mind while readingThe Ladies' Room . Although it may not be true and applicable to all female characters but it is fitting forTrudy(the female lead). To know what to expect, read the synopsis. But please do not expect a whirlwind romance out of this. The romance slant is just icing on the cake.I like how this book depicts and reflects a lot of things in life:1.Going to church doesn't automatically reserve you a seat in heaven besid [...]


    10. This book is so funny, and a nice cozy read. A good strong woman, a philandering husband, busybodies, and a story that will will make you smile. Loved it!From : Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life.Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion, a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married lif [...]


    11. Amazing!This book was an incredible read from the very first page. It's a love story, but really, so much more. It's about love lost and true love found. It's about family and friends. It's about accepting ourselves for who we are. The characters are well developed and I loved them all. The story flows smoothly throughout the entire book. I highly recommend you read this book. I absolutely loved it!! I can't wait to read more books from this author. AMAZING!!!


    12. Title: The Ladies' RoomAuthor: Carolyn BrownPublisher: Montlake RomanceReviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: FiveReview:"The Ladies' Room" by Carolyn BrownMy ThoughtsThis was quite a interesting read of a women taking charge of her life after finding out her husband of 20 years has been nothing more than a cheat! What a way to find out about this out after being overheard at a funeral [in the ladies room] and Trudy decides to make some changes in her life starting all over. This story will have some v [...]


    13. I loved this book from beginning to end. Trudy is a hoot and I loved cheering her on (she's so sassy!)Nothing groundbreaking here, it's a story you know: Newly divorced woman going through the stages of grief, figuring out who she is, falling in love again unexpectedly, and building a life bigger than she ever imagined (but absolutely deserves). One word summarizes this novel: Sweet. This story is SO SWEET and in all the right ways. It's like sweet tea or peach cobbler. You just eat it up! If yo [...]


    14. If you want reality, this book is not for you. If you like reading romantic fantasy, then it is for you. Trudy turns into a sassy, rebellious lady when she overhears her cousins talking about her cheating husband at her Aunt Gert's funeral, inof all places, The Ladies Room! Trudy was married two decades but did not know her husband had been unfaithful to her from the beginning of their marriage. I did finish the book, it was funny in parts & it had a happy ending. I think many women would lo [...]


    15. Predictable & QuickThe Ladies Room is a quick, predictable, happily ever after book. Fun little read for the times when you know you just want a sure thing happy ending. Not something I would have purchased, but as a free read it was worth it.


    16. Great readRecommended for all the romanticized divorcee s. How life would be Grande if you inherited money from the passing of your great aunt right when you find out your husband is cheating in you. Love how she gets back at him.


    17. My 10 month old downloaded thisWhen I wasn't looking my son rented this book on my kindle and I was pleasantly surprised. very sweet, light, happy little story.


    18. I really liked this book. I downloaded it as part of my Kindle Unlimited subscription. I didn't expect much as most of the KU books I have already ready read turned out to be duds. I was pleasantly surprised. I was hooked after the first chapter. The author did a fantastic job of keeping me engaged with the entire story. There wasn't a lot of big climaxes and surprises but rather a steady flow of daily events. It reminds me of "Seinfeld". It's a story about nothing and yet everything. During her [...]


    19. 4.5 starsI just discovered Carolyn Brown with this novel. I loved it from the first page and did not welcome any interruptions while so engaged. She has written about 30 novels, and as avid a reader that I am, I'd never heard of her. She writes with such wit, charm and insight, that I'm very excited about discovering this author and loading up my kindle with more of her works. She wonderfully creates believable characters that one comes to know and care about. Serious situations, like divorce an [...]


    20. This book is like chicken soup for the middle aged woman's soul. It's a witty, fun coming of age story of a small town 39 year old who finds out within a single hour that her husband of 20 years is a serial philanderer and that her grand-aunt left her an inheritance of a dilapidated ancient house.The story revolves around Trudy finding her self-respect, courage to take and stick to tough decisions and a lot of hard work to remodel the old house. With a typical set of characters - nosy cousins an [...]


    21. I'll be honest this book was pretty fluffy, but that's alright.I loved how the M.C. finally stood up for herself and that was giving me life.It was freaking refreshing, because this wasn't the kind of cheating that COULD be forgivable. There is a Happy Ending, and it's cute. Look @ me being sentimental. lolWas it a perfect book? No. But it was perfect read for me right now. So YMMV. In certain moods I would probably not like this, but I'm feeling this right now.



    22. Not sure what planet the negative reviews for this book came from. This was a sweet, funny book. Every once in awhile I need a little Chick Lit, sappy, Lifetime Movie, happy ending kind of book.




    23. Trudy thought she had a good life and a good marriage until she overhears her cousins talking in the ladies room at their great aunts funeral. She quickly learns her husband has been unfaithful since right after the wedding day with a string of mistresses leading up to the latest young girl at the bank. She also learns her daughter had eloped and the whole town thinks Trudy is a fool.From there Trudy takes the reigns. This is a fun book with lots of humor and a terrific romance among home improv [...]


    24. Unforgettable story of heartbreak, courage, and second chancesI loved every single word of this book. It's heart wrenching, humorous, shocking, and inspiring. Trudy visits the ladies' room during her aunt's funeral, and what she hears shatters her whole life. Trudy is an endearing character. She's easy to love and admire. The way she handles the rest of her life with honesty, bravery and self respect is admirable. She inherits her aunt's house and befriends her 'adopted' grandson and quiet neigh [...]


    25. The Ladies Room is a hysterical novel by Carolyn Brown. However, despite the humor, it does deal with Alzheimer’s, cheating husbands, faithful (or unfaithful friends), family dynamics, and second chances. I simply could not put this book down so make sure you have plenty of time to read. Trudy had left the sanctuary during her great-Aunt’s funeral to visit the ladies room. Little did she know this visit would cost her life as she knew it. You can be assured that with eavesdropping, you will [...]


    26. It's pretty hard to pigeonhole this book; "Romance" doesn't seem to sit well with me or calling it a "Chick Lit" doesn't either.Although I categorized this in "Romance" fiction, I think there's much more than that.This book is an entertaining quick read; the story opens at Aunt Gert's funeral, in a ladies' room all of places - then the heroine, Trudy, eavesdrops her cousins Marty and Betsy talking about her husband's infidelity that spans nearly as long as the length of their marriage.In indi [...]


    27. I LOVED this book. Maybe I was just in the mood for a sweet, quick read with good characters (and some you love to hate!), but I enjoyed it very much. Yes, the plot was somewhat predictable, but sometimes you just need to read a feel-good book, and this was it. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.
