The author has created a fun cast of characters who are realistic, engaging and easy to relate to. I absolutely loved the strong sisterly-best friends bond that Emma and Laura shared, it was endearing and inspirational. The sisters' foray into the dating world was hysterical, I really enjoyed reading about the different dates and relationships that they had with Dan, Ari, Tim, Preston, Luke and the Matt(s). Who couldn't relate to the roller coaster ride through dating hell that these lovely ladies had to deal with in their search for love, while embracing it in their forties?! I also loved the close relationship that they had with their mom Helene, especially when she was going through her own personal issues. The strong womanly bond between the three ladies was simply wonderful.
