Debby works wonders in creating multiple characters that we can all recognize. The first person viewpoint for each main character could have created problems, but doesn't. And it was fun getting inside different character's heads. I liked Tim from the start, so Priscilla miffed me some. After all, can't she tell when a guy is hot and has a heart of gold? Laura and Pete intrigued me, too, because I know people just like them. Both can be a pain, but inside they mean well. Everyone's knows a Celeste--a woman that goes from frump to beauty--just as we all know a Trudy--the beauty queen who seems to have it all in high school but whose life now is in shatters. Numerous other characters fill out the story, intertwining like a well-woven carpet.
Yet, it's the insights into life and into our souls that blessed me. Debby has a way of step-by-step showing us these insights and then wrapping them up in a one sentence summary where you go, "Oh, yeah, I know that." Then she puts in a couple of surprises just so we'll come back for more.
Suspense? Some, but not in the classic way. The romance stuff? Some, but not in the classic way. :) We'll all have to read that second book to find out more about that.
To sum this up in three words, I liked it! I rarely give 5's, but I'm giving one today because this was a class reunion that I actually went to! :-D Debby creates well-developed characters, a well-developed plot, and those moments when we grin and go "Aha!" If you're a chick-lit person, you'll love it.
The characters were just quirky enough to be believable. I cannot wait to read the next 2 in this series.
Ah, class reunions. What a wonderful time to reminisce with old friends and to see how everyone has turned out, for better or worse.
The main character is Priscilla Slater, sometimes known as Prissy depending on who's talking. Priscilla has come a long way since high school. She's a very successful businesswoman, although she still lacks confidence.
Laura Moss plays a big part in the story as well. She was the vice president of the senior class and is the head of the committee organizing the reunion. Or maybe I should say she IS the committee since she's practically ran everyone off with her overbearing and bossy ways.
Trudy Baynard is one half of the beautiful couple. Unfortunately, the other half hasn't lasted. Michael decided to trade her in for a newer model and has her on an emotional rollercoaster that's barreling downhill fast.
From her negative attitude to her unibrow, Celeste Boudreaux is the social outcast. Or at least she was until Priscilla gave her a complete makeover. Now she's turning heads, including Pete's, Laura's husband.
The reunion brings all of these ladies back together. Although none were close, growth and maturity, and a string of humorous predicaments, have caused them to form an unusual bond.
Mayne develops a story full of laughs and a little heartache. She touches your heart with this inspiring tale of friendship, losses and the past you thought you left behind.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of women's contemporary fiction. Although not overly spoken about, there is talk about faith so I would also recommend to those who like Christian fiction.
*I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me, in exchange for my honest review.*
