This story is told from the viewpoints of Claire (the single mom), Mia (Claire's swinging single big sister) and Claire's daughter, Zoe (think Junie B. Jones with better grammar). We follow Claire and Zoe as they struggle through the trials of becoming a single parent family. Even through the struggles, the story is lighthearted and comical.

I enjoyed the story but as the mother of 1st and 3rd graders, I needed to suspend reality and just accept Zoe as she's presented. She's a 6 year old 2nd grader who seems to act and think like a Kindergartener yet writes journal entries with the skill of a pre-teen. In the same manner I remind myself to laugh at Claire's glaringly obvious shortcomings and the need to introduce her to daycare as an obvious option for a working mother.

I've recently read the first two Keyes Sisters books and became quickly attached to these ladies. The time line for this book follows directly from the first and I found that the plot of this book was very similar to Sweet Talk. In many ways Sweet Spot seemed like a repeat performance. I do look forward to the third book when we will catch up with Jesse after 4 years have passed.

An excellent end to the Keyes Sisters series. All 3 of these books were quick, fun reads. I liked that this book picked up several years after the first two. This was my favorite of the 3 books.
