Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
Yes, I enjoyed it from start to finish. There’s a flow to the book that makes it an easy, breezy read. I liked all the characters, and I think being a mother helped me understand them even more. Throughout the book I was constantly putting myself in their positions; I even put my children in their children’s positions. What I love most about this book is that you can see how strong the friendships are between the women even though their lives are so different. What I didn’t love was how the ending kind of leaves you hanging. It didn’t feel like a complete thought, and I didn’t think all the characters really came full circle. That was the only thing that kept me from giving this book five stars.

Would I recommend it: Definitely. I think it’s a good bit of chick lit and would be great to read in the sunshine (if we ever get any).

About the book – from Goodreads: It’s October in Buffalo as four long-time friends, The In Accord Book Club, gather around a fireplace while a fierce windstorm amasses strength outside. They are deeply disappointed with the unfaithful characters and lackluster resolution of the novel they’ve met to discuss. When they agree to each write a richer, more satisfying conclusion in lieu of their next month’s selection, none has any idea of the tempests about to erupt in her own world. Their intertwined lives and personal journeys, by turns humorous, sad, touching, and inspiring, furnish the raw ingredients for the new epilogue each writes.
