PRAISE FOR JEN TUCKER!
“Losing a salt shaker became just as serious as losing baby Jesus in the Nativity scene come Christmas at the Tucker house. This witty, barely breathable, unputdownable tale about a massive incident will have you relinquishing your own set of trusty shakers in hopes to bring peace amongst these addicts.”
~Jen Daiker, author of When Love Aligns

~Dina Silver, One Pink Line
“Reading Jen Tucker’s memoir, The Day I Wore My Panties Inside Out, was like having coffee (or a martini) with my best friend, talking about the real stuff in life with no filters, and laughing out loud the whole way. I loved Jen’s honest writing, her hilarious stories, and this very real glimpse into the life of a wonderful mom, friend, and wife.”
