"Cute story.

Women are funny like this in their friendships. It reminded me of some of my own girlfriends. We don't always agree but we're always there for each other. "
No Sweat Pants Allowed - Wine Club by Jan Romes
"Hilarious! What a funny, gripping first chapter. This is how chick lit should be written. Love the main character and her perspective of a life well-lived or not-so-well lived. I want more Jan Romes!"
