Overall, I enjoyed the follow-up stories of the women from Waiting to Exhale.

There were a few things that kept this from being a 5 star rating for me though:

1. I listened to the audio version and did not enjoy listening to the author read the character of Savannah. I've been an avid audiobook listener and have found that I prefer audiobooks where the author does not read their own material (with the exception of autobiographies or memoirs).

2. The timeframes didn't seem to add up...this could be due to the fact that I haven't read the first book in years so the stories could have been in different places, but there were odd gaps between events that just didn't make sense to me.

3. These women don't seem to have changed much. I was hoping that they'd be wiser and more settled into their lives...but they seem just as chaotic and dramatic as ever.

In the end, I still enjoyed it finding out what they were up to.
