There is a book I want and I don't know much about it. No author or title. It is about a women who is treated like crap by her family until she is diagnosed with a terminal illness(possibly cancer). Then they treat her like a queen. She does not want to tell them that her doctor called and it was a mis-diagnosis for fear of them going back to their old ways. This book came out in hardback about two years ago. I was wondering if anyone had read a book like this. I think it is supposed to be kind of comedic. Possible a picture of a hearse on front....that is as much as I remember. I had wanted to read it and lost the wish list I had it written down on. Any help appreciated. Thanks !!

I think it is Live a Little by Kim Green. I did a Google search for chick lit books with a mis-diagnosis of cancer and found it. It has a pink hearse on the cover.

Thanks that was fast !! It is the book I was looking for....not great reviews but, I will get it anyway. If I don't like it I can re-list it. Just one more great perk of this awesome website. Thanks for your help.
