Publisher's Summary

From the beloved author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties and The Wonder Bread Summer comes the jaw-dropping story of Lexie James, a counselor at an exclusive New England prep school whose search for happiness lands her in unexpectedly wild trouble.

Lexie James escaped: After being abandoned by her alcoholic father and kicked out of the apartment to make room for her mother's boyfriend, Lexie made it on her own. She earned a master's degree, conquered terrifying panic attacks, got engaged to the nicest guy she'd ever met, and landed a counseling job at the prestigious Ruxton Academy, a prep school for the moneyed children of the elite.

But as her wedding date nears, Lexie has doubts. Yes, she's created the stable life she craved as a child, but is stability really what she wants? In her moment of indecision, Lexie strikes up a friendship with a Ruxton alumnus, the father of her favorite student. It's a relationship that blows open Lexie's carefully constructed life and then dunks her into shocking situations with headline-worthy trouble.

The perfect cocktail of naughtiness, heart, adventure, and humor, The Trouble with Lexie is a wild and poignant story of the choices we make to outrun our childhoods - and the choices we have to make to outrun our entangled adult lives.

Just OK

It was a fast easy listen with a pretty shocking situation towards the end that made the otherwise predictable story worth listening to! Her newest release though was an unbelievable listen that I can’t recommend enough! The only reason I bought this title was because of her new book, Mary Jane, but this book didn’t even come close.

The best part is that it ended.

Some of the most annoying and unsympathetic characters. I think I fast forwarded through the second half it was that uninteresting.

Hated the 2nd half of the story

The heroine was way to messed up for the story to be fun or inspiring to me

I read this in search of Blau’s backlist.

After loving Mary Jane and loving some other of her early novels, I realized I had missed this one.

The book is true to the scene and especially Lexie’s age. Men like Daniel absolutely exist and everyone should have a friend like The School Nurse at that troubled time of life.

Worth a read!

This book starts off slow, but stick with it! It gets good. Like a trainwreck you can't stop watching. I enjoyed this book. 👍🏻
