This is Maggie's story.
Three best friends find the loves of their lives when they hit the big Four-Oh! Great reads, all, but read them in order if you can!
Bk 2 is: A Fabulous Husband (BJ's story)
Bk 3 is: A Fabulous Wedding (Dixie's story)

I really wanted to love this book because it's in my age group and I adore old flame romance stories. However I thought it was a bit boring due to the endless fighting between the hero and heroine about her ranch and how she was going to solve a mystery without his help. Since he is a cop he wanted to take over. Also, I thought the friends were too overbearing and flaky. I haven't seen a single review less than the highest rating at several reader review sites so take mine with a grain of salt. It feels like I must have read a different book.

As a Chicago cop, staring down a gun barrel had never fazed Jake Dawson. But his being in constant danger was his wife's undoing. About a decade was all Maggie could handle before she left him for the safety of a Montana rancher's life. Now Jack's going to visit her, and he's accepted the fact that after his son's graduation ceremony he'll turn around and go home--alone.

At least, that's the plan until Jack sees his ex. Never one to be predictable, Maggie is not just thirteen years older since their divorce, she's better--more of a knockout than ever. And Jack wouldn't say no to having fabulous Maggie as his wife all over again.

But what about those differences? Will they matter the second time around?
