About the book
Dana Sue Sullivan, devastated by husband Ronnie's one-night stand with a local bimbo, made neighborhood history by throwing him out of their Serenity, S.C., home, tossing his belongings onto the front lawn and banning him from all contact with her and their 14-year-old daughter, Annie. Two years later, Dana Sue is a successful restaurateur, having opened high-end eatery Sullivan's, but can't forgive herself after Annie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening anorexia complications. Dana Sue's lifelong best friends, Maddie and Helen, insist that she contact Ronnie, giving her forlorn ex an excuse to re-enter Serenity and, he hopes, a chance to rejoin his family. As everyone faces down their personal demons, Woods buoys the predictable plot with flesh-and-blood characters, terrific dialogue and substantial stakes.
I love this series about 3 best friends. The books are listed as romance but while there is romance in them, I don't consider them romance books. They are more about love and friendship. Since the first book was about Maddie and this one Dana Sue, I am sure the next one is about Helen. I can't wait to read it. However, it will have to wait a few days since I picked up 3 new holds at the library today and they need to be back in 1 week. So they have to be read first.
