The gals are back again!!! (However, this can be read as a stand alone novel.) They’ve got new challenges to enthrall us!
Bella Flora has been rented out to a former nemesis of Kyra, Troy, who now is claiming that he has always loved her. But Kyra is definitely not buying it and we will have to see where this goes – but don’t be so sure you can predict everything.
Kyra meanwhile has agreed to let her son, Dustin, be in his father Daniel’s new movie. Daniel is now trying to be a director and not just an actor. Kyra has huge reservations about Dustin being with Daniel and his new wife, troubling fears that turn out to be a mother’s gut feelings that are spot on and trustworthy.
Then we have Nicki who has had twins and is trying to get back to her svelte, former form. She’s also finding the care of twins to be overwhelming and her husband Joe advises her to hire some help while he’s away on business. The woman they hire is endearing to the twins and readers as well, perhaps too much so for Nicki’s liking. Niki will change because of this experience as well, in a frustrating but heart-warming series of events.
Bitsy has been cheated out of a fortune but is about to serve her own brand of justice on her lying, cheating husband!
Maddie as always is the imparter of hard-earned wisdom, learned after her own trials and divorce. Still she learns that she’s entitled to her own life with its pleasures with her new romance. But she also learns that she doesn’t have to anyone’s “first” but instead be her own person first. Let the chips fall where they may!
This is the conclusion of this series and readers will want to read the previous five novels. Wendy Wax is a seasoned author who knows how to craft a realistic story with ups and downs that leave the reader challenged and entertained!!! Highly recommended contemporary fiction!
