Katherine, Tara, and Fintan have been best friends ever since legwarmers were cool in the 80s. They’ve made it through small-town drama, heartbreaks in the big city, and quite a few girls night out on the town.
But now that the women have moved on to a more serious decade, their 30s, only Fintan has anything that comes close to being called a love life. Tara struggles each day, eternally on a diet and frustrated with her penny-pinching boyfriend. Katherine holds fast to her solitary life, wondering if she’ll ever get the opportunity to leave the “last chance saloon.”
It’s always the times when you’re least ready for change that life throws you a twist. In this book, small crises lead to catastrophes, and the three best friends are forced to face big life changes, for better or worse.
Any fans of Keyes will appreciate her addicting characters sprinkled with dry, British humor. This novel is a truly accurate portrayal of what it means to approach your 30s as a single woman, with quite a few humiliating life lessons under your belt.
While most readers raved about the next installment of Keyes’ signature chick lit, a few critics felt that the book was “boring”; other readers found it difficult to put down. Decide for yourself and report back after you read the book!
