    I really didn't know what this book would be about. It was a surprise story line and I did find that I didn't want to put it down until I found out what they were searching for..which of course came at the end of the book.

    The characters who make up the book reflect friends who re-connect. I found it to be very different from what I expected..which depending on why your reading the book may also depend on your reaction to the plot.
    It was a fast read and one that once you got into the book you really didn't want to put it down. The main character in the beginning did not
    remain the main character in the end. Join three lovely ladies who re-connect for a high school re-union and share in the laughter, smiles and
    tears that go along with their story.

    A slow starter

    At first I really didn't think I would like this book at all, but it ended really well and she did a wonderful job really bringing the story to life.

    A Pleasant Surprise

    I bought this book with a gift certificate that I received at Christmas. It was bargain-priced and had some pretty good reviews. I also bought 4 others. Out of them all, this was my favorite. It lagged in some areas but I finished it with tears in my eyes. I think the story line was the perfect mix of sadness, anger, love and forgiveness. The author touched on 9/11 through the New York City trip the characters took and, while not delving too deeply, was able to express the mix of awful emotions that came with that tragedy.It was a very easy read. Although one could easily put it down and pick it back up, I found it hard to put down about halfway through. I would highly recommend this book.

    Amaturish and shallow

    I found the characters in this book poorly developed. The storyline was cliched and the language amateurish. In short, don't waste precious time reading this one.

    It'll Grab You by the Collar

    I read The Girlfriends Club. It was great. But this one, A Good Man, was even better. The author explores the boundaries of deep affection, friendship, first love, and commitment...I highly recommend it.

    Good read!

    While I was certainly hooked early on needing to find out the 'why', I was a little disappointed at how long it took and what little soul searching went on after all was disclosed. I still recommend the book, just wish it was done a little differently.

    Unputtownable

    In Lamberton, Texas Rhonda, Holly and Gina Kay were best buddies attending high school together. Rhonda had one foible: her obsessive love for her boyfriend Terry Robertson, an heir with a suicidal attitude. Her parents forced Rhonda to leave Terry to attend college; eventually she became a lawyer. In high school Holly fantasized of becoming a famous fashion designer, but instead runs a successful wedding-gown business. Gina Kay was impoverished with an ambulatory mother until she won the Miss American Teenager beauty contest that included a college scholarship. The friendship between the three buds ended when Terry eloped with Gina Kay........................... The threesome is together for the first time in two decades at Terry¿s ranch now owned by his widow Gina Kay following his funeral. After numerous attempts to kill himself and passengers by vehicular suicide, Terry lived up to the mantra of if at first you don¿t succeed try again. With the object of their schism interred Rhonda, Holly and Gina Kay head to Manhattan to exorcise his ghost find reconciliation, and start new adventures with Russian immigrants in Brighton Beach............................. This profound character study looks deep inside the three amigas and through them at the late Terry. The story line hooks the audience who want to know more about Terry and his relationships with the trio. Though the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn enable further glimpses at the lead protagonists, that sidebar takes away from the critical essence of how a male can break up the strongest sisterhood bond (explained via well designed flashbacks). Judith Henry Wall paints a powerful family drama although the childhood friends are not related by blood, they act like siblings........................
