  • “This amiable, good-natured comedy will put the reader in mind of her favorite flannel pajamas—not sexy, exactly, but comfortable and fun.”

Listener Opinions

    " Good book to read by the pool sipping a drink. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 2/15/2014

    " My library tends to specialize in political books and lesser-known chick lit selections. This is one of the latter. It was advertised as something akin to Sex and the City, so I was all up for it (as my library co-op has never carried the original SATC book). So, what do we have? Two New Jersey women, one married and spectacularly famous, one divorced and made slightly famous by her well-meaning daughter. Hilarity ensues. Okay, it doesn't. It has its moments, but it's not the greatest book ever. I will say, though, that at the very least, the ending was not just *poof* there, which is the worst trait a book can have. "

    " Really fun read. Great and fresh writing. "

    " Good for a beach read. I read this on the beach and loved it because it was simple and was a guilty pleasure. I also always enjoy reading about the bizarre lives of wealthy Manhattans - I just can't understand their lifestyle "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ember | 1/3/2014

    " This book was a quick read...not too much depth to it, but I just randomly picked it off the shelf so didn't know too much about it. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 10/23/2013

    " A fun read, but really rather forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 6/26/2013

    " I highly recommend this book for a light summer read. It's a quick read that's predictable yet enjoyable. It also appeals to an older crowd than those that I'm usually reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 5/30/2013

    " Basically, it's okay but nothing special. A nice fluffy read, which is sometimes just what you need. This would be great for a plane ride or for sitting on the beach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 3/25/2013

    " Not bad. One character was so selfish and the other was so normal it kind of bothered me sometimes that they were friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois Duncan | 2/6/2013

    " This book is a romp -- relaxing and fun to read. But you won't find it interesting unless you are over 35. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 B | 7/28/2012

    " Loved this book! I read it probably 4 hours. Perfect summer/beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 6/22/2012

    " It was an average book. I finished it and it kept my interested near the end when I was trying to find out who would be with who. Just glad to be done with it. I love the character Jess. She balanced out her friendship with Lucy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mom | 5/17/2012

    " Mid-life affairs, botox, dating, reality TV, but the characters are still pretty likeable. Definitely just a fluffy, fun book. Everything works out in the end, I just haven't figured out how the women in this book have any time to do the fun stuff and have time to parent! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/30/2012

    " This was a very funny book! Forties to fifties women would definitely enjoy. A good light read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendie | 12/22/2011

    " Entertaining. I read it in about 4 hours! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 12/18/2011

    " Entertaining fluff. These are what I like to call my "pink" books. Similar to a chick flick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 8/14/2011

    " Quick light read! Read in one week "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristine | 8/13/2011

    " I was seriously bored with this book, although there were a few chuckles. The title is misleading, as I thought there would be funny stories generated by a group of women struggling with their body image after 40. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ghira | 12/16/2010

    " It read like a sictom, but was highly entertaining, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 8/31/2010

    " Love it! I am a huge chick-lit fan: love happy endings and far-fetched stories. This one was great and so far, the most believable story. Maybe because the characters are my age, so it was from my point of view so to speak. A great read for these hot summer days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merceda | 8/26/2010

    " Cute book. It was actually pretty funny. Had humorous tag lines in it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anikak | 8/10/2010

    " It's like reading cotton candy. Easy read, it took me 3 days... and pretty entertaining. Definitely better than the Shopaholic books... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah | 3/3/2008

    " I have this one on audio book, so I listen to it in the car....the radio sucks!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mama | 1/25/2008

    " Very funny!
    Lectura ligera y sin pretensiones, pero muy entretenido. "
