Very enjoyable read. The author blends humor with the events and messages. Really liked the story about how three women at different stages of their life learn to accept changes. Highly recommend this book that I picked up by accident at the library, thinking I had a Jeffry Archer book! This is written by Jennifer Archer. A pleasant surprise!
I had a hard time finishing this book. I got bored with the story.
I loved this book. The author is new to me but I will read more of her books in the future. I enjoyed the relationships and her style of writing. I found myself getting emotionally caught up in the story and relating with all three women.
Delightfully refreshing like ice cream on a hot day! A great book about a middle-aged woman caught between an aging parent and a restless teen. You'll find lots of laughs and romance and maybe even a tear or two.

I liked this. Three generations of women living in one household - a divorced mother, raising a teen, whose mother moves in for a while. Light and humorous at times.

Cute, fun read about being the "sandwich" generation - sandwiched between your kids and your parents.

At the age of ten, Jennifer Archer made up her mind to become a writer. Then she grew up, became “sensible,” and earned a business degree with a minor in accounting instead. After years of trying to find her way through a confusing maze of debits and credits she realized that, for her, accounting was no more sensible than becoming a World Federation wrestler. So in 1993, she enrolled in a creative ...more
