This novel is packed full of lively interesting characters, particularly the female ones. There are daily life events, unexpected incidents and twists, a whole spectrum of emotions and plenty of humour. There are friends, family, extended family, work colleagues and clients. We see the support women can offer to one another and the misunderstandings which can arise between them. It is definitely an exciting read with a good pace, and an uplifting, optimistic one.

I read the whole book. However, I was slagging and not interested during the first half or so. Maybe it had to do with me not being exactly at that stage of life yet, although that hasn't prevented me from enjoying other stories. Or it may have been the introduction of different characters in each chapter, without me being able to find a defined line story, but rather the telling of seemingly random experiences with each one. That, and the fact that I didn't like that God was mentioned, sometimes in an expression, without being capitalized, and there was a significantly sad event in the main character's life, which in the end she seems to overcome without many troubles, and even being basically glad it happened, which I think may not be sensitive towards people having undergone the same, and for whom it had a major emotional impact, therefore making the process slower and more painful. Although I understand that's the character's personal reaction, maybe something could have been mentioned to not make it hard on readers who have had the same experience, and for whom it was not so, apparently, easy and 'light' to overcome.
After the first half, I did get somewhat into the story (going back to where some characters had been introduced, 'cause I hadn't paid attention, lol), and enjoyed the events and story unfolding more. But, overall, I just couldn't connect with the story as I usually do.

A beautiful mix of tears, love and laughter with a excellent dash of sarcasm. Would recommend.
Looking forward to Betsey's next novel.
