This is a very short novella which introduces the reader to The Late Bloomers series. It is about 5 friends in their 40's all unmarried or in one case about to be divorced. It is New Year's Eve and they are all out at a restaurant in NYC just having a good time and discussing their lives. Is it too late for these women, who originally chose careers over love to get a second chance? From what I read--I don't think so--but then I will have to read the rest of the series to find out!!
