This book is just ok. A little schmaltzy. The narrator can be annoying. She can’t do mens voices without making them sound like idiots. Men can be idiots, but not all deserve that portrayal off the bat. The book was free, so it was worth it, but don’t pay for it, or use a credit.

The plot is thin. I kept waiting for more to happen but it didn't.

The story was so good. Felt like I knew each character. The narrator made each character come to life. Really, really enjoyed the whole experience.

This was from the VIP list and it was an okay read. It was a little bit like a lifetime television show. Things generally worked out in the end for all of the characters. Narration was adequate for the female voices.

I loved this book. The narrator had different voices for each character, all of whom were developed well as the story unfolded. Believable characters and plot. Recommend!

very good listen. this story had many emotions it had action nd adventure it had shocks. it focused on taking views as society sees things and that made it interesting. I recommend this story.

Love Robyn Carr’s stories. I had read this one years ago but it was nice to revisit these ladies. I especially enjoyed this narrator’s vocal acting chops, particularly with Ellie’s deep voice, from years of smoking, Beth’s shy, innocent ways, and Gabby’s southern mama, reminiscent of genteel Atlanta and shades of Miss Scarlet O’Hara in her later years. You could just picture these women by how she spoke! She did a great job with all the characters.

I did like the story line of this book…just not a fan of some of the language that was used. Clean some of that up and it would bump up another star .

I really enjoyed the plot. I just wished that the author didn't feel it was necessary to include expletives.

Loved this book! The story is something any woman could relate to and the ending was satisfying. This was my first Robyn Carr's book and surely won't be the last. I'm looking forward to listening to more of her books. What a delightful and heartwarming story!

Tearfully I just listened to the end. Happy tears. Wonderfully written, beautifully read, the story of four women and a fifth added, who come together after their good friend dies. Amazing how a death can trigger so much change. Be such a catalyst in opening up. A wonderful story of true friendship, of opening up and becoming. I enjoyed every listening minute.

Wonderful story! At first I was concerned I may not really like it because of the story description, but I loved it! Narration was excellent! Every voice was different. you knew who was talking because she changed with each person. I love Robyn Carr books!

It provided insight into women and their feelings and interactions with men. I loved it. Highly entertaining. I appreciated that addiction and/or severe personality issues were not depicted lightly. The reader was admirable in her skill.
