At first, I have second thought of reading it because. 1.) It's like for adults because of the ages and status of characters 2.) I didn't thought I can understand this story because it's all about adulthood. But in the middle part of the book, I got hooked. Well, it was about like some sort of an adventure of seeing their ex boyfriends during their high school and receiving their second chances on their love lives.

I was like fascinated with their love life and how they would ever find their hap

Finito di leggere Tre amiche e una Jaguar, pensavo di leggerlo così per sdrammatizzare il fatto che sono ferma da più di un mese con Joyce, senza sapere neanche perché.
Poi mi sono accorta che il tema che avevo scelto era sotto i miei occhi ed io non me ne ero neanche accorta.

La trama è abbastanza semplice, tre amiche che decidono di tornare a casa, peccato che non abbiano 20 o non sono appena uscite dal college. Hanno 40 anni e due di loro anche qualche matrimonio alle spalle.

I know I got this book from off of one of the romance blogs I read but I can't remember which one. It's a really charming story about three women who are from Louisiana but now live in California. They are all facing a crossroads in their lives.
Cat is an interior designer. She has married two men, both drunken cheats, and is more than a little cynical about the entire species. But when she goes back to Louisiana, she learns that the family that she always thought was hopeless, might not be that

Quite a funny story. Great women's fiction!

From back cover:

"Road Trip for three? They were three girlfriends whose lives had seen better days, and they were driving to a reunion in New Orleans, the town they'd left behind.

MJ, a gorgeous younger woman whose older husband died in the bed of...well, let's just say he died in a compromising position; Bitsey, an overweight housewife who can't believe that's all there is; and Cat, a twice-divorced designer whose pristine present is small compensation

I really like Rexanne Becnel's voice and I loved the Harlequin NEXT line for the short time it lasted. This was a good read and the author did a great job of telling all three women's stories in first person which would be dicey with a less skilled author. A good read if you like women's fiction.

A girlfriend book for the "over-40s" to take to the beach. Girls get even, take a road trip, plus find love with old boyfriends and new ones. Good read.
