Very cute book, but I wouldn't get this book if you are currently dealing with cancer or death. Saying that doesn't give the book away or anything, but if you were living either of those and wanted an escape this is not the book.

Cute book dealing with loss, parenting and sisterhood.

Cute read. I thought this book was okay, but as I have read some of the author's newer books, this is not my favorite. This book has more levels than a typical chick-lit book, as it deals with health issues, sickness, and loss.

Okay, it must be me. After reading the reviews and putting this book on my Wish List, I couldn't wait to read it once it arrived. What a disappointment. I could not get into the book at all. I found it tedious and boring and finally gave up after 25 or so pages. I could not get a sense of the characters and found the chapter titles and hair color descriptions for each sister silly. I likely will not read any of this author's books in the future.

My first book by this was very touching in places & I liked it.

The author starts each chapter with the mixture of hair colors for the sisters' monthly dye job night with a little note...thought that was cute.

I'd read this author again if I came across any more of her books.

Quick read about a woman and her sisters who deal with life as they best know how to. Emily, the main character is trying to get herself back together after the death of her husband. Her older sisters are dealing with relationships that have gone sour while trying to help their younger sister move on. I found this to be a quick and enjoyable novel and plan to read more from the author Eileen Rendahl.

ChikLit: Very funny and touching account of three sisters during their monthly home hair color sessions and chat fests - what's happenening in the young widow's dating life, the married sister's hectic family and, the engaged sister's turn about. I'm reading this again quickly before I pass it on - fun book.

This was a very moving, funny and sad book all at the same time. A very fast and enjoyable read.

It's about healing.
After a couple of rough years, Emily is finally getting things back together. She doesn't need to re-do everything at work three times, her young daughter's soccer uniform is almost always clean the day of a game, and meals are pretty darn reliable, too. But hey, becoming a widow at thirty-three kind of knocks the starch out of you.

It's about family,
The Emily's dad has an Event (only her mom would call a minor heart attack that-what is it, a bar mitzvah?). Next, her sister Claudia's ex-husband starts stealing their kids' Ritalin for the high-and wouldn't you replace it with The Pill to teach him a lesson? (His unexpected, uh, frontal development was just a howling funny bonus-honest.) And then Emily's relentlessly sensible oldest sister, Leah, dumps her businessman fiancé for a rock musician.

It's about never letting them see you gray.
Now Jake, Emily's best friend, seems to be spending a lot of time at her house. Which she likes way too much. Which is kind of confusing. So what's a girl to do, but call an emergency meeting of the sisters' monthly hair-color-and-gossip session, to make the world seem sane again?
