A nice light read; this novel has plenty of funny moments as it explores a group of women's idiosyncracies and struggles. There's some wisdom thrown in too, as the women learn that no one's perfect and everyone has something to share.

I gave up on this one.

The author seemed to divide her time between showing off and being angry. Even the stuff that was supposed to be funny fell into one of these two categories. The book needed polish and, I think, less of an edge.
