This was a well-written, thought provoking, interesting book. Trudy, 46, finds out after 20 plus years of marriage that her husband has been cheating on her, and they separate. Her neighbor, Roberta, has just become a widow when her husband of 62 years passes away, and she is grieving deeply. Her granddaughter, Jade, comes to stay with her. Jade has divorced her "player" husband, and is trying to make some changes in her life. Another neighbor, Shanelle, is an aspiring writer and trying to find a way to pursue that interest despite her husband's objections. Angel is a new neighbor who moves in next door to Trudy. The story follows these characters as they find support from each other and work through life's challenges. I really enjoyed this book. I received a copy of it in exchange for an honest review.

If you like Women's Fiction, this book is for you. It's about love and healing. It's about family and friendships. Trudy's husband is having an affair and she has kicked him out. Roberta's husband of many years has passed away and she is lost without him. Her granddaughter, Jade's, ex-husband is incarcerated and still stringing her along. She comes to her grandmother to help her and to get away from her own life. Shannelle loves her husband and her boys and her life, but she wants to be a writer and her husband is convinced she wants that instead of him. These women come together to help each other heal and find their way. Set aside time when you pick this book up because you will not be able to put it down! You will believe in love again.

Kitchen Avenue is the home of strong women with different life situations: Trudy Marino is facing a crossroads in her life prompted when she discovers her husband is having an extramarital affair; Roberta becomes a widow; Robert's granddaughter, Jade, is coming to terms with her broken marriage; and Shanelle is chasing her dream to become a writer. I like to think of this book as Chick-lit for the over their 20's crowd and really enjoyed how the author was able to share a range of emotions in a very realistic manner. From the book, I like this exchange between 2 of the characters, "Knowing everything you know now...would you do it again?"..."How could I be where I am if not for that?" Thanks to the Inner Circle for the copy of this book.

It took awhile to get the characters straight, but once I figured it out I really enjoyed the book.

Read about 40 pages, flipped through several more, then archived. I was surprised by how I really did not like this book. Wish there had been some kind of warning about the God-less ness of this one. And seemed very difficult to follow. Hate not finishing after only going through so few chapters, but when I realized I was getting irritated with it, I knew it was time to shut it down.

A warm walk through the trials of life. I enjoyed the trip.
