The Ladies Temperance Club’s Farewell Tour

Vonda Mae Ables could never hurt a soul. Now she’s on the lam in a huge RV, with her best friends, gallons of Chardonnay and a stiff in the freezer.

Vonda has suffered her alcoholic boyfriend’s abuse for twenty years. But when she finally stands up for herself, she overdoes it and crushes his skull with a football trophy. Rather than turn herself in, she enlists her friends to help ditch the body. They stash the boyfriend in the freezer of his humongous RV and take off for Arizona, planning a quiet desert burial. Unfortunately, the plan goes more sideways with every mile. Vonda finally finds a likely place to plant the dead SOB, but now he’s frozen solid and stuck in the freezer.

Exhausted from their day of digging and unsuccessfully trying to extricate him, the women stop at a local cafe. While they’re drinking dinner, a gang of Harley-riding repo guys makes off with the RV and a Good Samaritan reports the theft. Vonda panics when the police arrive to investigate, knowing if the cops recover the RV and discover what’s in the freezer, she might have to turn that old trophy on herself.

Imagine THELMA AND LOUISE meets Lucy & Ethel — It’s about good friends, good wine, manslaughter and the lengths we’ll go for those we care about.

Here’s what just two reviewers had to say!

5 stars  “Quick – someone make this into a movie!!!”

From Mandy Ward “The Tiger Princess” (South Wales)

“…The story itself revolves around the active membership of the Newbury Park Ladies’ Temperance Club. Vonda, Kay and Francine are three close friends who support each other through the thick and thin of daily life, accompanied by as many bottles of wine as they can drink together.

 Vonda is married to Jack Thibideau and after one particularly nasty encounter with Jack’s taste in porn and alcohol, coupled with many good reasons for divorcing the guy, Vonda picks up a nearby trophy and does to Jack what any thinking person would like to do…

 The hijinks start after Francine and Kay find Vonda and decide to take her on a road trip in Jack’s luxury RV. They stuff Jack’s body into the RV’s onboard chest freezer and disappear into the night.

 This is one book you are going to find yourself snorting, cheering and laughing aloud at!

 Be prepared to have to read pieces out or explain what you are reacting to, or alternatively, you could suggest that the inquirer read the book themselves. Either way, it is a rollercoaster ride of emotion and entertainment from beginning to end.

 Jeff Lee has really captured the whole road trip movie feel and his characters are perfectly crafted, drawing you into the story and making you care about them in so few words. His descriptions at each pitstop they take and the encounters they have keep the story flowing nicely, especially after Fish and his Sidekicks get involved…

 This is a book that I think will lift the spirits no matter how many times you read it, and one that I can seriously see becoming a box office blockbuster.”

Review #2:

5.0 out of 5 stars “The Most Loveable Winos & Cast of Characters Ever!!!”

From D. D. Scott

I bought this book because I luuuvvved Author Jeff Lee’s blurb:
Thelma and Louis meet Lucy and Ethel

Great concept, right?!

But I fell in love with this book…and now have it on my cyber Keeper Shelf…because The Ladies Temperance Club is the most loveable bunch of quirky-crazy winos I’ve ever read!!!

And the secondary characters – Trailer Park and Diner Queen Ruby and her no-teeth, sweet-as-sugar hubby, Detectives Farley and Sturm, and the superfab Area 51 alien-hunting Icelandic boys – are a hoot and then some!!!

Not to mention the A-mazing one-liners throughout the entire book which had me LMAO from page one ’til The End.

Oh, and what’s not to luuuvvv about the well-endowed ceramic planters gracing the dashboard of the quirky-crazy winos’ RV?!

Rumor has it, Jeff is writing the sequel, and I know I’ll be one of the first to buy it!!!

And my own review!

Be warned..this book will make you laugh till you cry!


Format: Kindle Edition

This book should come with the attached warning…”Do not attempt to read this novel whilst drinking any form of liquid; it is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and spurt the contents of your drink over the nearest available clothing/electronic equipment/intended mother-in-law.

I love a book that makes me smile; I love a book that makes me laugh…This book made me embarrass myself on a crowded commuter train…I snort when I laugh that much, what can I tell you?

Meet the three female rogues…Vonda, Fifty something and making every day count for something… including murdering the low life son-of-a-sleazebag that has made her life intolerable for twenty years. The miserly, scamming, dysfunctional, short, nasty piece of work named Jack Thibideau. He earned his early demise, and then some.

Francine: Ahhh…my personal favorite, innocent, loyal to a fault, funny without attempting to be and just plain lovable. Watching her evolve is a joy to read. She is one of life’s survivors seemingly a quiet soul with no insight in how to stand up for herself.

Meet Kay; Smart mouthed, sassy, and a friend to the end.

These three diverse women take off in an RV that takes up a city block…on a journey to lay the body of Jack Thibideau, stiff {for the first time on his sicko life}, and slowing freezing in the underbelly of the van somewhere where he can defrost and decompose in peace {Not that he deserves it.}

The journey is a delight; author Jeff Lee has drawn each and every character with an artist’s eye for detail, dialogue, and clever characterizations. His observations of people are acerbic and acutely accurate.

Every character no matter how minor the role they play becomes clearly visible to the reader, you see them, hear them and in many cases smell them as they are intertwined in a cleverly plotted fast-paced delight of a book.

What pleases me even more with Author Lee’s work is that the plot is carefully drawn with seeming ease, comedic writing is hard to maintain, the timing has to be perfect and seemingly effortless… yet it it is one of the most difficult genres to write well.

This is a gem. Written beautifully.

The evolution of the characters is paced well, each of our central figures begin to change; they grow along with the story. I care about these women; I want the ending to see each of them happy. That is the mark of an Author that shines…someone that stands out from the crowd; Jeff Lee made me care for these folks. He is a fine writer, and I have no hesitation in giving this a 5 star rating, and happily recommending it to all those who enjoy a damned good laugh and more importantly a good story well told.

      1. You are most welcome Jeff as you know. Am I forgiven for not being a beta reader? I’d love to read it but don’t think I am a reviewer. I am having a break for a while today as been at it since the crack of dawn. How is it going with you? How are things with your injuries? Getting better I hope 🙂

  2. About the Beta reader thing? No worries, Jane. I’ve been officially released from physical therapy. So, now we just have to wait and see what the guys in the graduation gowns & powdered wigs have to say. Enjoy your break, Jane. Lord knows, with your schedule, you could probably use it.

  3. LOL! You ladies are going to have me believing all those compliments. (Dangerous ground to be trampling across, given that I’m a double Leo.) THANKS, Suzanna and Jane — you two are ACES!
