I enjoyed this story a lot. It was kind of long winded but still I enjoyed. I'll be picking Bettye Griffin books up again.

A pretty good read, just kind of crazy how she was so indecisive about who she wanted to be with for a woman over 40. If the doctor was not giving her what she needed she should either have told him or left him alone a long while ago. However the book did paint a good picture of trying to involve ones self in a ready made family with older children and inlaws. Over all a good read.
I read this title in fall but it's what I would consider a good "summer" read. Delves into nothing too seriously but I liked the characters, the characterizations and the little surprises.

Romance with a just enough comedy to keep it light.

Pretty good and relatable story. I think Emily made the right decision in the end regarding her relationship with Aaron, the doctor. Some things you cannot overlook, especially if it's for a lifetime. The narrator did a good job too.

This book was good but I can say it wasn't my favorite book. I wish that Emily and Aaron would have worked out but she did what she felt was best for her. So that is a good thing. Maybe her and the guy she met on the plane (Michael) will work out. :)

Not a good book. Stereotypical and underdeveloped characters, plot was boring.

This book was a very good read. It had a surprising end that left me wanting a sequel.

A book every woman can identify with from the family issues to the relationship issues. A must read

This was very frustrating to listen to because the main character goes around and around on one issue that she could have cleared up with one little conversation.
It was a nice read. I loved how Emily made a tough decision regarding her relationship even though her family and friends felt she should make a different choice but they were ultimately supportive.
