Meeting once a month, the women would share laughs and secrets and toast to their blossoming friendship with a clink of their sacred martini glasses. Before this book I read The Sleeping Beauty Proposal, a light funny read, then I read this book, that really touched my heart. This book was exceptionally meaningful to me, since I have a very close circle of lady friends and we would likely do anything for each other. What I liked about these ladies' friendships is that there is no cattiness between them. Two years later, when Lynne passes away suddenly, she leaves behind one simple request: that her old friends sort through her belongings. Two years later, when Lynne passes away suddenly, she leaves behind one simple request: that her old friends sort through her belongings.

Upon graduation, Sarah began working as a journalist and eventually transitioned to writing novels. Mary Kay must make decisions regarding Drake, the man she loves. The friendship thread is strong throughout the book. Eight years is a long time, I might have liked this book better if the premise hadn't annoyed me.
I could not feel sorry for Carol at all. Other than the annoying premise and the character issue, it was. No one else has this dirt and if she plays her cards right she just might use this to skyrocket herself into a career. A must read for 2011! It is an homage to her dearly departed high-school friend, Josh Simon. There was much laughter as they remembered the good times they had shared, and there are tears for their friend.

Besides wanting the final version as my own keeper, I also have dear friends and loved ones who will appreciate it. As a warning, if you are bothered by alcohol use, you may not find the book to your liking. Reluctantly, the women reunite to rummage through her closets. I had a hard time keeping Beth and Mary Kay straight; maybe a chapter on each of them individually like the author did with Carol would have gone a long way to clearing this up for me. As they take this trip, they also learn more about themselves and what love means.
When one of them passes on from a long battle with cancer she asks her friends for one last favor. While on this journey for Lynne, they all have personal journeys of their own. So all tge quotes about girl power and female friendships on the cover didn't resonate with me. This is her best yet. While in the midst of sadness, they deepen their friendship over the course of just a few days on the road. Do we ever really know another person? Who will she take care of now and who will take care of her? Its a great book about friendship and the rollercoaster ride that life throws at us.

I found this to be a great story about a group of women who are best friends. The friendship thread is strong throughout the book.
If I liked martinis, I would have enjoyed the recipes. and setting up a secret bank account in preparation for a divorce. Meeting once a month, the women would share laughs and secrets, toasting to their blossoming friendship with the clink of their sacred martini glasses. Eight years is a long time, even if you are sick. Modern smartphones and computers can read files of any format.
These women essentially become sisters. When they got together they shared martinis based on the recipes they found in a cookbook that was in Mary Kay's house. But yet, I found that the mission they were on was something that they should have not been doing and could have been done by their dead friend prior to her death. I didn't rate it lower because there was nothing I disliked enough to stop reading it, parts were amusing or at least interesting, so it entertained me for a day or two. Moved along at a decent pace, pretty readable, not terribly memorable. Its a great book about friendship and the rollercoaster ride that life throws at us.
