This is my first book by this author. It's a light, easy read that never satisfied me. The main character, Noreen, has just taken a company buy-out from Balancing Act Shoes, was dumped by her sleazy co-worker boyfriend, and her life stretches emptily before her. Now that she has time on her hands, she becomes friendly with 2 women from her neighborhood and starts a walking club with them, joins a support group for the newly unemployed, and becomes fixated on lavender and clothes lines. I think part of the problem for me is that this was supposed to be women's friendship book and I just can't figure out why she would want these two as friends, they just keep whining. Tess is particularly irritating, vacillating between being unreasonably prickly and intent on saving the world in awkward ways. I liked Noreen's mother's romance but not Noreen's attitude towards her mother's romance. I had higher expectations for this book based on what I'd heard about the author so I guess I'm upset that it didn't get there. I don't know that I'll bother trying another of hers.
