Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown returns with a heartbreakingly hilarious novel about three women who had nothing in common, except their husband.
Leaving one widow behind is unfortunate. Leaving three widows behind is just plain despicable. Oil heiress Kate Steele knew her not-so-dearly departed husband was a con man, but she's shocked that Conrad racked up two more wives without divorcing her first. The only remnant of their miserable marriage she plans to keep is their lakeside cabin in Bootleg, Texas. Unfortunately, she's not the only woman with that idea.
Fiery, strong-willed Jamie wishes Conrad were still alive - so she could kill the scoundrel herself. But for their daughter's sake, she needs that property. As does Amanda - twenty-eight, pregnant, and still weeping over the loss of her true love. On a broiling July day, all three arrive in Bootleg...with a dogged detective right behind who's convinced that at least one of them conspired to commit murder. One momentous summer filled with revelations, quirky neighbors, and barefoot evenings on the porch offers three women the chance to make the journey from enemies to friends, and claim a bright, new beginning.

So many complaints, HATE THE NARRATOR

First off this narrator sucks eggs, her latin accent sounded like a drunk Canadian, if she couldn't execute the accent properly she shouldn't have used it. Never again should this narrator be used for a story requiring a latin or hispanic accent. Also in other books she has narrated she mispronounces words over and over and over to the point her voice makes me cringe. Second, c'mon Carolyn you can do better than this pathetic story with the exact same story line as every other story I've read of hers. There is not a single character like not even the little girl. They all are really annoying and whiney. This book and narrator for the book have ruined Carolyn Brown's novels for me for a good while. So disappointed.

Easy listening.

Don't have to be fully engaged to follow the story line. Somewhat repetitive at times but perfect to do housework listening to.
