Top customer reviews
The main character's son is an addict who escapes rehab and the behavior of addicts is well and accurately portrayed.
I think the author has talent and great promise and will look forward to trying her next book (after it's old and sells for a penny on Amazon of course ;)
storyline with hysterical scenarios sprinkled throughout. Light hearted but also dealt with some serious issues so
was evenly balanced. Not just 'chick flick literary candy'...my book club loved it and I am eager to read her other novels.
