Really good, fast, can't-put-it-down read!
I enjoyed this book. A book about strong women.
Pamela Morsi was my favorite author several years ago when she was writing Americana Romances like "Simple Jess" and "Wild Oats" so I couldn't resist grabbing this at a library sale but was disappointed to see it's woman's fiction which isn't my genre so I won't be reading it.
Witty, wise & wonderful. 40 something Ellen is currently downsizing her life....a term she prefers over ones like widowed, broke and homeless. She, her daughter and her grandaughter all move home with Ellen's mother Wilma. Wilma is a serial bride for whom stability is a dirty word. And the changes keep on coming. Ellen's new job at The Cowboy of Taxes has a revolving door of down-on-their-luck clients---perfect for Ellen, considering her recent experiences. In the meantime she has something of a revolving door at home, given her mother and daughter remain convinced that men will solve their money problems. But life is what you make it, and in colorful San Antonio, Texas, four generations of women discover that the most important thing about having a past is letting it go.
This book was disappointing, since Pamela Morsi is one of my favorite authors. The three main characters are well developed, but I didn't really like any of them. It felt like I plowed through the book with no real "feel-good" payout at the end. Plus, I didn't really care what happened to these women by the end of the book.
