this is another one of those "middle of the road" books. Nothing actually bad and not exactly boring, but....not much happens. A group of women that are friends, help one of them out, have problems that each are struggling with individually, get caught for helping the friend, get in a fight and then make up. The End.
At times, I felt that the author just skimmed over each character and didn't make their struggles interesting enough to engage me.
It passed the time, but is not memorable. Narration was probably the best part of the whole experience.

If you're a fan of writer Wendy Wax then you already know the major components of this story. First we have three women who are very good friends. One of whom lacks financial resources; one of whom has a husband with at least one foot out the door; and finally one who is well-to-do and in a sensitive marital situation. In this case one of the principal characters has a bad case of writer's block and has not only lost her husband but her publishing deal as well. In order to get out her final book for her old publisher her friends decide that they will pitch in and get this one done.
There is unfortunately the small issue that all three of these ladies are under contract to different publishing houses. Then there is the nasty New York rep, determined to ignore whatever book the writer puts out.
So will these ladies overcome the obstacles before them? Well of course they will.
Like a great many of the writers in this genre the inability to come up with a creative plot line is compensated for by the knack for creating three dimensional characters that people can relate to and care about. In addition the narrator is an excellent reader and seems to have found the voice of each character. Though Ms. Wendy doesn't seem too creative when it comes to different story lines, her characters are universally likable and her books leave you feeling happy.
