Claire Cook never disapointments me and I totally LOVED this novel!!!!

Noreen has lost her job and has taken a company buy-out which will provide her with 18 months of pay and benefits to allow her time to find another job. Not knowing what in the world to do with herself all day at home, she hops into a brand new pair of sneakers
and heads out for a walk.

Soon after, two of her neighbours, Tess who is married and has trouble with her teenaged daughter Hannah, and Rosie who owns a beautiful "lavendar bush farm" join her. The three woman soon forge a strong bond and decide to make walking their daily routine calling
themselves: "The Wildwater Walking Club." They all snap on pedometers and walk 10,000 steps a day together and plot their successes on a map in the garage.

They decided that after so many miles walked, they'll combine their air flight miles and take themselves on various trips together. One of the most meaningful being a gathering of "Lavendar People" in Seattle. What a blast they had together. Weaved in and out
of their "Wildwater Walking Club", each woman is fighting internally with her own problems. But as they walk, they share their secrets, their desires, their wishes and some truths and realize that walking with "friends" is actually fun! It makes me want to
start up my own walking group!!

This is a book you CANNOT MISS!!!! You HAVE TO get it today!!!

Thank you Claire for another totally engrossing, wonderful, fun book!
