From the author of Boot Camp for the Broken-Hearted: How to Survive and Be Happy in the Jungle of Love, comes Audrey Valeriani’s first novel celebrating the power of friendship among women.
These heroines communicate as women do-with intense emotion and in code! They put up with unsympathetic bosses, love the wrong men, and yearn for well-timed, unsolicited, supportive hugs from loved ones. Hilarious and heartwarming, readers will feel like part of the group as they gather for their special dinners in their chic sanctuary. Silvia, the unofficial founder of this group of crazy, lovable women, does her best to function normally despite her abject past. Julie’s idealistic nature despite a cavalcade of roguish suitors continues to surprise her friends with cheerful optimism. Sarah is tightly wrapped and comfortable with anonymity until a misadventure exposes a lot more than her truth. Tina is a tough-talking career woman who can spot a “fugazi” from a mile away and hides a startling secret. And Liza, with her unique delivery of the English language and tiny bladder, drags her friends along as she defeats her archenemy and chases her dream.
What gives these imperfect women the strength to battle the everyday forces of evil? Love and true friendship. This unexpected little “family” rallies when one of them is knocked down. After all, it’s getting back up that makes all the difference.
