"I guess what it all boils down to--even for us old couples--is that being loved after fifty is still important."

Every week, seven retired women--Melva, the analyzing newcomer; big-hearted Judy; alcohol-loving Doris; sweet homemaker Mary Jane; pious Alice; good-time girl Lola; and Vicky, the man hater--meet for the Old Broads Breakfast Club at their retirement community in Arizona. But on this particular day, Melva has had enough. She doesn�t want to talk about what life used to be like. Instead, she yearns to find the excitement that has been missing since her retirement. And she�s not the only one.

Six of the women agree that they don�t have enough romance in their lives; to remedy this, they decide to each buy a romance novel to "spice things up." To further their venture, they start watching "chick flicks" and even attend a Chippendales all-male strip show.

Through it all, the seven women learn the true meaning of friendship and discover that retirement doesn�t have to be life�s final chapter. Geezettes is folksy, funny, and thought provoking--a tale full of laughter and tears that is guaranteed to capture your heart.
