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...more
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...more
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...more

light and easy read.
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.
Very cute book! I usually don't get in to the romance novels but this was a fun read. I loved the bond between the characters.
