Life sure surprises us. Maybe we get comfortable for a while, but sooner or later the road we’re on takes a sharp turn. How we handle the turn makes all the difference.
So it is with friends Gabby, Hayley, and Nicole. Whether it’s upheaval in marriage, with children, or at work, the ladies lean on each other for support and laughs.
The ladies really worked on being good people to themselves and each other. It was nice to read good conversation that reflected positively on women and their families.
The beginning seemed very planned, bordering on contrived. I felt like I could practically see the framework of the plot — and it should be invisible to the reader! However, as the characters grew into themselves, the story flowed better and seemed more natural. The development of secondary characters helped, too.
By the end, Mallery had me crying. I appreciated each character, flaws and all, and I saw exactly why these friends were keepers.
