Favorite Hen Lit

Hen Lit is grown-up chick lit with an older heroine who probably has a kid or two and a mortgage. But she’s still just as much fun as her twenty-something chick lit sisters.

The generous gardener by Trisha Ashley — Living in an idyllic Welsh village with a handsome husband and a loving daughter, 40-something Fran March has reason to be happy with her lot. Then her daughter, the result of an unforgettable one-night stand, starts asking awkward questions about her "real" father.


Hens dancing by Raffaella Barker — Abandoned by her husband, Venetia Summers is not alone. Living in a dilapidated house in Norfolk, she is surrounded by her three children, a houseful of animals, and a garden run amok.


Savannah blues: a novel by Mary Kay Andrews — Antique “picker” “Weezie” Foley is still angry that ex-husband Talmadge got her painstakingly restored Savannah townhouse in the divorce. So finding the dead body of Talmadge’s new girlfriend casts suspicion on her.
