Two 30-year-old women begin a friendship together.

That's all I can really think to say about this book, because it was really the main thread. Everything else that happens is just a subplot and nothing that I would consider a major plot point. I really felt like this whole story could have taken place in an episode of "Gilmore Girls"--small town, coffee shop, huge excitement over moving a tree, rich socialites vs. others, etc.

Overall, I thought the book was decent.

Quotes Kimberly Liked

Sarah Addison Allen
“Coffee, she'd discovered, was tied to all sorts of memories, different for each person. Sunday mornings, friendly get-togethers, a favorite grandfather long since gone, the AA meeting that saved their life. Coffee meant something to people. Most found their lives were miserable without it. Coffee was a lot like love that way. And because Rachel believed in love, she believed in coffee, too.”

“Happiness is a risk. If you’re not a little scared, then you’re not doing it right.”

“When you're a teenager, your friends are your life. When you grow up, friendships seem to get pushed further and further back, until it seems like a luxury, a frivolity, like a bubble bath.”
