Publisher's Summary

What's a 40ish woman to do if her free-spirited elderly mom's moving in, her previously do-gooder teenage daughter's sneaking out, her prize-winning stud bulldog can't get it on, and her soon-to-be ex-husband can't get his mind off girls half his age? A. Have nervous breakdown
B. Run away
C. Eat massive quantities of ice cream
D. See a counselor
CiCi Dupree chooses C. She doesn't have time for a breakdown, can't afford to run away, and she is a counselor.
Until she fears her daughter, and even her widowed mother, are repeating her mistakes. CiCi realizes she has to do something, because after all, her family ties might be a bit frayed, but they still could bind nonetheless.

A great tale of 3 generations

This well-read story is the tale of 3 generations of women. Written with today's issues at the core, each woman tells her story from the media that relects her age.

A story of new love, lost love and found love, this book is a good time.

Sweet suprise

What a great story about mother-daughter relationships. I really enjoyed all of the characters (grandmother, mother, daughter, all their boyfriends.) The author captured the messy family, good and bad, sadness and new love. This is what some would call a "sleeper" but I enjoyed it!
