As much as I thought this book would be a sure shot for me (usually Red Dress Ink books are, particularly ones about single women), I couldn't stand it. First, it plays on what is now becoming an ever-present yet tired stereotype of the "totally hip older mom." The mom in this book (turning 60) steals her daughter's clothes and purses, sleeps around, dates tons of men, drinks, loses her car, and is "Just. So. Darn. Flighty." Ugh. Although I identified more with the daughter, I didn't sympathize or feel for her at all. I didn't like *either* character and wasn't rooting for or invested in them. The book dragged. It sometimes switched descriptions of the characters without telling you, so you thought you were reading about the mom, then ooops, it's the daughter. Hard to follow. This is just one reader's opinion of course. But to read about a woman (close to my age) competing with her mom for dating the same man? Ugh ugh ugh.
