Definately not about angels. A fun story of a woman who loses all of her comfortable tennis mom world and moves to Los Angles to be with a friend who shows her a "brand new" way of life. Light and warm.
This was the first I've read by Marian Keyes. I really enjoyed it and have read many more of her books since this one. This one crossed the pond and did not take place only in Ireland with most of the action taking place in Los Angeles -- hence "Angels". So with that crossover, you get the 2 different cultures or lifestyles meeting and mingling. That was the main interest in the book along with the great characters that Keyes is known to write. This 1 is a keeper!
