Sometimes when you need a change in your life the tide just happens to pull you in the right directionEllis Julia and Dorie Best friends since Catholic grade school they now find themselves in their mid thirties at the crossroads of life and love Ellis recently fired from a job she gave everything to is rudderless and now beginning to uestion the choices she's made over the past decade of her life Julia whose caustic wit covers up her wounds has a man who loves her and is offering her the world but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks her I should start by saying I felt dirty for even finishing this book it was so awful I'm pretty sure I lost I points somewhere in the middle of it Don't get me wrong I'm all for trashy brainless novels but this one was god awful Every person in it is a caricature and the author who apparently can and has written much better novels though I've never read any and am not likely to start after this one relies on tired literary devices rather than actually giving her characters and her plot any thought or dimension In my time as an editor I have noticed that average to poor writers like to describe what characters are wearing and always always ALWAYS portray the women eating in no fewer than two scenes usually dragging a french fry through a puddle of ketchup or crunching on a tortilla chip or taking a sip of her frosty margarita Ack And really has anyone on this planet ever actually said the word slathered when not reading aloud an article about sunscreen or moisturizer I didn't think so The women sound like what a middle age writer imagines today's 30 something women to be which is exactly what they are and a long way from reality I half expected them to mention doing a Google on the Internets and checking electronic mails And please for the love of God let me never again see someone actually say in dialogue Denial ain't just a river in Egypt I also must have missed what exactly drew the main character to the main male character as far as I could tell it was because they were both relatively attractive Good luck with that Honestly the main male character seemed lazy think Steve Zahn in well just about anything and clearly wasn't over his divorce but hey jump right into a relationship with him why don't you He's hot so why not It seemed to me that the moral of this story was that all these women needed was to realize they had good men right under their noses and their lives would be in order The main character Ellis actually sighs happily when she sees her boyfriend's slovenly bachelor pad and begins to pick up his dirty clothes and crusty cereal bowls What year is this again Yeah I'm a sucker for a romance novel but this one was too far gone even for me These women are supposedly independent but yet they aren't complete until they find a man How very progressive This is the kind of writing I expect from a first time author at a smaller imprint than St Martin's The best thing I can say about this book is that it was from the library and I didn't waste any money on it I need to return it so I don't even spend a dime on late fees
