I really love Lorna Landvik's style of writing. This was a good book. Each chapter is narrated by one of five people & it centers on two families who are good friends.

I tried, but absolutely could not get interested in this book. Landvik worked too hard at being funny--it didn't take.

Landvik's characters are always fun and seem so real, like your own neighbor. This book is a nice read. (also includes a discussion group questions)

This is a very well-written saga of two families who have grown up in the same small town where everybody knows everybody and their business too!

I didn't enjoy this book near as much as some of Lorna Landvik's other titles. Written in 5 voices (the 5 main characters), which I think was too much because their points of view weren't real clear to me. With every page turn, I kept waiting for the story to get better...it never happened.

If you liked Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons...you'll enjoy this one! A touching and funny story of a group of middle-aged friends opening a nightclub!

It was a very different format to read, but I did enjoy getting to know all the characters is this manner. Good, quick read.

Author Landvik presents with humor another cast of all-too-believable small town characters who open a BYOB hang-out, and come to grips with the cracks in their relationships.

I like this author, when i first read "Angry Housewives eating Bon Bons", I knew i would have read all of Landvik's books. This book surpised me, there were some unexpected events that kept me turning the pages.

Each chapter of this book is being told by a different character, and it takes us through what is going on in each of their lives, and how they feel. It was better than I expected, after I got started. Not a bad read, not as boring as I thought it was going to be at first.

This was a good book, not the usual quirky characters as in Angry Wives or House of Curl, but I couldn't put it down.

Best friends fast approaching forty in the small Minnesota town of Flame Lake, Devera and BiDi were recently voted "least changed" at their twentieth high school reunion---a label neither one finds very appealing. For each craves a change in her life: Devera desires a break from her humdrum marital routine; BiDi longs to connect with her distant fourteen-year-old daughter, the only girl on the high school hockey team---not to mention to jump-start a sex drive stuck in neutral. So when Devera's husband decides to fulfill his long time dream of opening a nightclub in his basement, Your Oasis on Flame Lake arrives not a moment too soon. Nothing fancy, it's just a BYOB joint to hang out in, sing, dance, tell jokes, and be yourself. But then an unexpected crisis throws both families into chaos, forcing them all to take stock of their lives---and learn the power of forgiveness.
