Not one of her best
Back in the Game was not one of my favorites by Holly Chamberlain; however, may be worth reading for some women who relate.
The novel is about four women who find themselves going through a divorce. They share their miseries with one another along with some tops about divorce. One man turned gay, another had his wife cheat on him, another wants a baby and he doesn't and another has found his own true love.
Of course, they go through the dating scene and not really my type of escape as too many problems and not a lot of substance.

I enjoy reading Holly's works and this is another good one.
Starts out with alternating chapters of four women who are getting or going through a divorce.
They share their triumphs and days of misery with each other and some even find online or group sessions to help them over the problems that arise.
Also at the beginning of every chapter are tips or quotes from other publications about divorce.
One man turned gay, another had his wife cheat on him, another wants a baby and he doesn't and another has found his own true love.
Their life's go through the dating scene again and what they find and how they cope with it all.
I did find with the very short alternating chapters (some are long chapters) it was hard to follow each of them and keep them straight as to who was who.
Love the locale and descriptions of the Boston area...
References to Sex and The City are made and you can see the connection. Love how it all ends up where everything is tied together in harmony.
Excerpts of The Summer Everything Changed is included at the end of the book.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review.
