This title is more crappy then the book ended up being. Two women who live outside of London (but that is what they have in common ends) end up becoming friends. They have kids about the same age and both dislike the rest of the neighbourhood mothers. One of the women is "glamorous" from London who moves to the country so her husband (who ends up dying, whoops, spoiler!) can start his own business. But because he dies, she is now stuck somewhere she doesn't want to be. And her husband kind of fucked up their finances, so she is broke. The other women is sort of frumpy but likes living in the country and is having a hard time in her marriage and they become friends. I liked women #2, with the exception of some of the things she let her husband get away with, just like being an all around douche. Blah. But I liked that the women with nothing in common end up being friends. They start some fragrance business or something and it becomes massive. They end up selling it to a huge company and they end up shutting them down, which is kind of sad, but they sold the business so they could spend more time with their families and live more comfortably, which they end up doing. As chick-lit goes, this one wasn't too bad.
