I just loved this book about three lifetime girlfriends. A fun, lively story I would recommend to anyone. The book just proves that husbands and boyfriends come and go, but a girlfriend is forever! An easy, fun read. I just ordered another of Sandra Dallas' books. Hope it is as good as this one! Genny
When I first started reading this book, I didnt think it would be as good as it turned out to be. I thought it was just going to be a run of the mill story. But I was fooled. The friendships that are formed in this story are what the story was about, and I became totally immersed in the lives of the characters and the development of their relationships.
