We meet three married couples that are friends and neighbors. The women are the real story while the husbands seem like filler. One of the wife’s mother is a hoarder leaving the grown daughter a neurotic mess, another was once successful dancer/stripper leaving her swimming in self-confidence, and the third wife is a wanna be cellist drowning in self-doubt. There is a typical suburban barbecue where the entire miss match of personalities collide and through a crisis evolve into nicer women with enlightened husbands.
If you are looking to do some major thinking I wouldn’t recommend this tale. If you are looking for a fun little beach book that doesn’t insult the reader’s intelligence this one is for you.
