Overview

Divorced, fifty-plus and a reporter on a small-town newspaper, Carol has just one grumble – the way friends and family will try to fix her up with a Mr Wonderful. No thanks! She’s perfectly content on her own. Then life shifts into the kick-ass mode. Steve, a tyrannical new editor, arrives: her elderly father morphs into a babe magnet: her daughter and granddaughter land on her doorstep, and black hairs sprout from Carol’s chin.

Jenny, Carol’s meek plump housewife friend, is eager to find herself a job, but her husband disapproves. Tina, a glamorous recently-widowed gold-digger, has one major problem – she hates getting older.

When the three women workout together with Max, an erotic personal trainer, all their lives are changed.

    Enjoyable Read

    I also think that the pacing was slow at first. I found that the book picked up speed and became more interesting when the incident at the retirement home occured. There was also a page (page 203) where the lack of transition between two events was somewhat confusing. The characters became more likeable as the story went on. It was nice to read a book featuring older women working,living and loving.

    Okay

    The book starts slowly, but the pacing improves by the end. It was an okay story with the twist being that the main characters are over 50.

    A good clean engaging book to read. Good characters with personalities you want to keep reading to see what happens.
