Anna, Kate and Georgiana have been bosom buddies since their salad days at University of California at Santa Cruz: This novel follows the three adventurous women into middle age. Read about the author, Lisa Lutz

Book Description

Moira Ryan is a woman for who love has never seemed to work, she has bad luck with men and has seen too many broken relationships in the lives of those she loves. She is somewhat of a workaholic who has learned to control her work and her life with autonomy. She lives in the shadow of her beautiful and vivacious sister, Sloane, for whom everything seems to come easy and whose upcoming wedding is only making her feel worse about her lonely life.

Jack Wallace can’t remember the last time he felt truly happy. After losing his mother as a teenager, he has treated women as an escape from the pressures of life and hasn’t committed to one for more than a few dates in years. Now his father is dying of pancreatic cancer and his only wish for his son is to find someone to share his life with. Jack’s life is full of stress as he tries for a promotion at work while simultaneously dealing with his fading father.

Their worlds collide one day as they run into each other and neither can deny the growing attraction between them.

The story follows these two as they deal with life, death, weddings and love.
It’s a story about relationships between parents and children, sisters and friends and most of all finding love when all odds are against it

4.0 out of 5 stars Would be better if edited May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished reading this great story. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters. It would have gotten 5 stars except for one thing. My only complaint is the editing.
Apostrophes, quotation marks, bad spacing and spelling make for a very distracting read. Quotation marks were used in place of apostrophes and quite often there were no quotation marks on what a person said. All of this may be because it was delivered digitally but I haven't had this problem with anything else delivered to my Kindle. If you are going to self-publish, please have a number of people read your text before you give the okay to print.

5.0 out of 5 stars love is the one truth October 24, 2013
By Lauren
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this story is about a man and a woman who have both given up on love before they even meet each other. through the encouragement of other people in their lives and their own luck they decide to give their relationship a chance. I thought this story was really beautiful, love made these characters open up their hearts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! December 19, 2011
By Crista
I can't say it any better than family_man did.
I finished the book in two days and missed the characters when I was finished: two signs of a great book! It was very well written, easy to read, and easy to get caught up in the characters. Looking forward to more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read! May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this book up the other day, and within two days devoured it as I picked it up and read in any spare time I could find. The only thing I will do next time, is not read this in a public place, as my eyes actually started to tear a few time, which very few books have ever done. I definitely cannot wait to pick up more by this author!!
