Christmas came early for me this year by reading an anthology of one of my favorite series ever. So if you are like me, and hold all this characters dear to your heart don't pass up reading this book, and expect to be totally smitten as we are given another taste into the lives of this crazy and beautiful bunch of best friends.

As usual with these stories, I laughed, swooned, cried and learned a whole new vocabulary of great words. Quinn and Janie are on their honeymoon armed with a binder full of vaginas, a blender with margarita mix and The Kamasutra guide. Nico and Elizabeth are trying to adjust to their new lives together with the help of Sinatra and a few other tricks. Alex and Sandra celebrate a year together and continue to check off items of Sandra's never ending, crazy lists. My absolute favorites Drew and Ashley, only because I'm a sucker for poetry and romance. These two will melt your heart and perhaps cause you a few happy tears as you read the most romantic love letters ever, and last but not least we get a glimpse into the younger years and the beginning of the love story of Greg and Fiona. A first kiss so powerful that leaves us with the promise of a heartwarming love story that I am now desperate to read...

There was so much beauty and love in the pages of this book and I hope nothing more than for everyone to experience it. The heart of all this stories has always been a strong friendship and unconditional acceptance and love. What I love the most about this group of women, is that they are all so different yet they complement each other so well, and the way this author humanizes them makes you feel like they could be your friends, your sisters, they truly become part of your heart.

There is more to Penny Reid than being a talented author, she truly becomes a friend to her readers; a friend who shares amazing stories, beautiful music playlists and awesome Pinterest boards and all this, always with a smile. Reading her books means experiencing the friendships, the camaraderie and you can even become part of an amazing community of book lovers, who enjoy wine and can always provide you with a good laugh. So join in the fun and make sure to share the good times with others. This book is available for pre-order and the author is donating 100% of the proceeds to Toys for Tots.
