Disclaimer – I received a free digital download of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I found the first few lines very comical, especially being a mother myself, unfortunately I’m well aware of the shopping trolley – toddler struggle. However, I did find it difficult to get pulled into the book at first.
The story follows 3 friends – Stella, Ana and Dixie. Getting to know them through their families, children and lovers. Some might think them unlikely friends who’ve grown and gone down very different routes, but somehow their history still bonds them.
I found this book quite difficult to get into, I’m not entirely sure if it was the writing style or the theme of the story as I have found it quite difficult to read ‘midlife’ crisis, older woman books. I did like that no matter what happened between the women, they managed to sort out their differences and came out stronger on the other side. I think everybody needs friends they can count on to have their backs no matter what.
Trigger warning : infidelity, gambling.
