I thought this was a great story. A "perfect mom" has gone wild after her husband's death. Her granddaughter shows up at her house and calls her mom because grandma has gone crazy! Turns out all three of the ladies have their own problems that are very interesting. The characters are easy to love. I will look for more by this author.

Great book! Jennifer Greene has a fun, loving, light-hearted writing style that is pleasant to read making it hard to put down!
This book looks at how we all change in life and how we can overcome those changes. A MUST READ!
Wonderfully written romance - The primary character is having a crisis of her own with her job but finds that she has to go home to help with multiple family issues. Her mother has finally discovered she is a woman with needs (and she needs to see as many men as possible). Her daughter has just discovered that her boyfriend is a louse - and she is pregnant. Several truly humorous slapstick events, skillfully balanced by tragedy. The threads of each woman's life are so interesting, that the book leaves you wanting other volumes, with more!
Susan Sinclair can do anything right raise her daughter, take care of her mother, have a terrific career...it's no wonder she's worn out! So she retreats back to the family homestead, where her sassy mother still lives. Back in Copper Creek, Michigan things sure haven't changed much; the locals still drive rusty pick up trucks, the air is still fresh...and the man she thought she'd left behind is there...he's still rich, he's still handsome, he still drives her crazy. He's Jon Laker and he's Mr Wrong.
From the back cover: Susan Sinclair has it all: great job, great apartment--and on some days she even manages great hair. She doesn't have a great man, but she's far too successful to have time for one. Then she gets a frantic summons to return to where it all began--Copper Creek, her home in Michigan--only to discover that her grown daughter has followed in her not-so-proud footsteps by getting pregnant without getting married and her widowed mom seems to be scandalously juggling more men than she can count....And worst of all, he's there--Jon Laker--still the man most likely to drive her crazy. So she marches into his business and declares she's there to discuss their daughter--and nothing else. After all, she made her choices a long time ago...but hours later--after not doing very much talking at all--Susan realizes that seeing Jon has turned her well-ordered world upside down. And Jon--plus mom and daughter--means it's going to be a long, hot summer in this small, small town.
