This book I have been meaning to read for eons after hearing nothing but good things about it. Everyone was right, this book is fabulous! This novel follows two unlikely friends, divorced single mom Jess and married Hollywood producer Lucy during some of the roughest times their friendship has knows as Lucy takes on a lover and Jess takes back a lover. The story is trite and done a lot but the storytelling is fresh and real. It could have been me and my friends 10 years from now. I loved every ounce of this book - well until the somewhat abrupt and almost too storybook ending but other than that is was fantastic!
In a world where plastic surgery is as popular as a pair of sexy Monolo Blahniks, a suburban single mom Jessica Taylor is trying to make it past forty with nothing more than moisturizer and a swipe of mascara. Her glamorous best friend, TV producer Lucy Baldor, has a different idea of aging gracefully. To Jess's dismay, Lucy announces that she's taken a lover. A very famous lover. Her husband is bound to find out, but Lucy's too wrapped up in the joys of expensive lingerie to care. Then Jess lands in her own romantic predicament when her sexy French ex ends up back in her life - and in her bed. Whether navigating bake sales or bagels-and-Botox parties, these wise and witty women know that their friendship will remain the one true thing then can count on. Well, that and a good push-up bra, of course. From Thai massage to tantric sex, who would have thought forty could be so much fun?
