I like the idea of this series: 4 women becoming friends through a book club and each book is told from the point of view of one of the women.

This was a pretty good book. There were some touching moments. I was a little disappointed at the end. Olivia just seems too perfect. I remember at one point Olivia wonders if she has become to selfless toward everyone, except her husband... 'has she just left him to fend for himself?' That thought/idea was never resolved. We find out later why Nick (the husband) has been so distant, etc.. but I think the story would have felt more complete and realistic if the marital problems could be attributed to both of them instead of just one; and then resolved by both of them making adjustments/comprises - because that's usually how it is in real life.

Overall, I guess I liked it. I don't know that it was good enough to make me want to read the other books in the series but I probably will anyways, especially since each book is by a different author.
