Great dialogue and a positive story about three generations of strong women. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Complimentary copy provided by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Suzanne is thirty-six years old, the mother to an eighteen-year-old daughter, Molly that is getting ready to head to Vassar for her freshman year. Suzanne has also just left her husband of eighteen years and has moved back in with her recovering alcoholic mom, Ava while she figures out how to put her life back together. One weekend, right before school starts, Molly comes home and she has a big announcement to s
Three generations of women funding their tectonic plates shifting as all three embark on new journey's together and separately. A story addressing the importance of complete honesty, acceptance and love of yourself and of your family.

All three main characters are strong, independent women, all three charming in their own right. The banter is extremely witty and each woman faces her own situation which weaves all three of their phases together. Indirect references of feminism, Wiccan, alcoholism
The dialogue felt forced and juvenile. The characters did not feel real to me. I just didn't connect to them. These were not people I would ever meet and think that I would like to get to know them better. I never really got what the plot was. I kept reading thinking there was going to be more to the story and there just never was. I found it to be a boring read.
Sweet and well written

Nice development of characters and the story moves along. This must be what they mean when they say good beach read. I found myself picking it up as escape reading every evening.

This is not the type of book I normally read, but I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. I was a bit disappointed at the end because wanted to know the next few days' worth of the story, but overall it was an enjoyable read.
I'm at 33% and so far it's just talk talk talk…

At 35%… I tried to keep going but just couldn't. Even when they are marketing, it's not about shopping. It's just talk talk talk. Nothing ever happens.
Such awkwardness. The book read like a made-for-TV-movie script that was converted into a novel. Lots of stilted phrasing, and every once in a while you could see some genuine talent in there, but if it wasn't a free-read I would never have picked it up.

I liked it

just a good old fashioned drama story that I enjoyed. if I'm being honest it was a tiny bit too tame, but also poignant. so it balanced out :)
Entertaining, but felt the author was hiding the ball too much. It took entirely too long for the daughter's "secret" to come out. The characters make it a fun beach.
The storyline was enjoyable. The spelling and grammar typos were annoying. I often had a hard time figuring out which character was talking as it changed frequently even on the same page.

A great read with alot of good dialog. This book is casual read. Nothing to write about.

This is a love story but I just found it so simple that I couldn't care about anyone.
