I LOVED this book! Being less than two years away from 50,I could really relate to this story! Funny and insightful, I would recommend it to anyone.
Had me ROFL on the very first page! Maggie is struggling with the M-word, which not only gives her hot flashes, but doubts about her loving husband of 30 years. Maggie is also dealing with empty nest, a widowed friend who is Internet dating, a chihuahua with a bladder problem, a troubled teen at her favorite coffee spot, and way too much time on her hands. Plus, when she looks in her mirror, her grandmother looks back at her. I totally feel her pain, as my mother's hands are typing this!!
An eccentric best friend, a leaky chihuahua, a teenager in trouble and a workaholic husband....a body heading south,gathering heat all the way. A really funny look at growing older with grace.
Gosh i loved this book. Diann Hunt is a super author and Hot Flashes and Cold Cream is a perfect feel good read. I have never read one Ms Hunt book that i did not care for. Her writting just flows and she is so down to earth,it feels like talking with your best friend.
An eccentric best friend, a leaky Chihuahua, a teenager in trouble, and a workaholic husband with a gorgeous new colleague. Those are the ingredients for Diann Hunt's wise and funny story about growing...well, older...with grace.
Midlife isn't a crisis for Maggie Hayden until the day a former classmate fails to recognize her--and her world starts to spin out of control. With an empty nest, a body that's heading south (generating heat waves all the way), and a marital spark that seems to be sputtering, she knows she has to do something. But what? Exercise? Romantic dinners? Herbal supplements? A job? She tries them all, with mixed success-but nothing seems to squelch that underlying worry that her best days are behind her.
Can Maggie come to terms with her new life and learn to trust what she cannot see? Can she reclaim her marriage and find a new sense of purpose? Can she discover a miracle cure for the aging process?
Well, two out of three ain't bad!
And the fun of this particular journey is just the whipped cream on the double-shot mocha.
