Twenty years ago, Allie Denty was the pretty one and her best friend Olivia Pelham was the smart one. Throughout high school, they were inseparable...until a vicious rumor about Olivia - a rumor too close to the truth - ended their friendship.

Now, on the eve of their 20th high-school reunion, Allie, a temp worker, finds herself suddenly single, a little chubby, and feeling old. Olivia, a cool and successful magazine beauty editor in New York, realizes she's lonely, and is finally ready to face her demons. Sometimes hope lives in the future; sometimes it comes from the past; and sometimes, when every stupid thing goes wrong, it comes from a prettily packaged jar filled with scented cream and promises.

Beth Harbison has done it again. A hilarious and touching novel about friendship, Love's Baby Soft perfume, Watermelon Lip Smackers, bad run-ins with Sun-In, and the healing power of Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific. Hope in a Jar: we all need it. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is much better than I expected. The characters are well drawn, and the relationships are realistically interwoven. I found myself caring what happened to the characters and seeing how they solved their problems. There might have even been a few worthwhile life lessons presented. "

    " Completely enjoyable read, though it never quite scratches the surface. Still, a bonbon of a book. "

    " The premise had such potential, but unfortunately it just falls flat. I gave it 3 starts but would really give 2.5 if I could. If you grew up in the 70s and 80s you will enjoy the references to products and pop culture but it is not enought to move the story along. The switch from current time to the past is done fairly well but again it could have been so much more. "
