This book offers a look into the lives of three best friends. The main character is Maddie and she is in the process of a messy divorce, trying to raise 3 children and also open a new business with her 3 best friends. In the end it all works out. I am in the process of reading the other 2 follow up stories about these 3 women, A Slice of Heaven and Feels Like Family. I'm sure those will be enjoyable too.

Wow, what a surprise...this book touched my heart. It is unusual for a book to start with a divorce and show the struggles of rebuilding a life. This is a real story...with real characters...with real situations. I LOVED the younger man/older woman scenerio. Stealing Home was a really good read! V.Garber

This is the first book of a trilogy. Each of the books is about one of three friends who live in a small South Carolina town and I loved their very different stories! This first book is mainly about Maddie and her children whose comfortable world has been rocked by her husband's betrayal. Her friends rally around and come up with a plan to get Maddie "out of the house"--they open an exercise/spa facility where Maddie, with her long unused business degree, turns an old Victorian house into a welcoming oasis for the townspeople. Because of difficulties with Maddie's oldest son, the young high school baseball coach becomes a very important part of Maddie's story.

This is another great series by Sherryl
Woods. She is a great writer. Her books are usually on the south and I love that. I have allot of friends that read her books so I read an then pass them on. Sometimes after all has read them I donate them to the local Senior Center or to our local library that is mostly run on donations.
