A lovely story of two best friends, once upon a time, who fall out over a man -- specifically Rosie's cheating husband, who only wants her money. But on the day Rosie wises up and kicks him out, she wins the lottery! How to get rid of the husband without handing over the money? And where does her ex best friend fit in the picture?

Rosie is a wonderful character and I rooted for her throughout. The story is not bad. Fun read.

Rosie is fed up with her husband's mistreatment and her weight gain. Through the course of the book she loses both, but gains much more. This was slow to get into, but worth reading to the end.

Rosie Gardener and Vickie Winters were best friends, closer than sisters. Partners in a successful mail-order company, both women lived comfortably in lush Savannah, Georgia. Svelte and single Vickie only wanted the best for her friend -- and she couldn't stay quiet when Rosie, overweight and unable to see her own worth, fell under the spell of Kent Bliss, a two-timing cad whose meal ticket was vulnerable Rosie. The night before Rosie's wedding was the last time Vickie spoke to her -- to warn her about Kent's true nature, and to quit their business before leaving for Europe.

Now, on her third wedding anniversary, Rosie realizes Vickie was right -- and that the Porsche and other indulgences were her attempts to buy the love of a man who only cared about himself. Fed up with his mistreatment, she vows to change her life -- starting by kicking him out that night. The next day, she begins a diet and exercise regime. But more life-changing news awaits: Rosie has the single winning ticket in the Wonderball lottery -- and she's won $302 million.

With Kent lurking in the shadows to claim a share of her money, Rosie needs her friends more than ever -- and when Vickie returns to Savannah, Rosie learns the power of forgiveness. As she loses weight and works out under the eye of sexy personal trainer Jack Silver, a new Rosie emerges. This pretty woman is making a fresh start, and no one's greed or bitterness -- or even her own occasional self-doubts -- will stop her from jumping into life and love with a passion she didn't know she possessed.

Overall story was good. There's a portion that is a bit "out there" - a woman buried under a tree swings and does things to the living.... I don't really buy that part, but the rest of the story is great.
