Publisher's Summary

A funny, emotional novel full of southern charm about a mother and daughter ready to start over.

“Liz Talley delivers. Her dialogue is crisp and smart, her characters are vivid and real, her stories are unputdownable.” -Robyn Carr, New York Times bestselling author

For a good part of Daphne Witt’s life, she was a supportive wife and dutiful mother. Now that she’s divorced and her daughter, Ellery, is all grown up, Daphne’s celebrating the best part of her life, a successful career, and a flirtation with an attentive hunk fifteen years her junior...who happens to be her daughter’s ex-boyfriend.

Ellery is starting over, too. She’s fresh out of college. Her job prospects are dim. And to support her fiancé in med school, she’s returned home as her mother’s new assistant. Ellery never expected her own life plan to take such a detour. With no outlet for her frustration, she lets an online flirtation go a little too far, especially considering her pen pal thinks he’s corresponding with her mother.

As love lives tangle, secrets spill, and indiscretions are betrayed, mother and daughter will have a lot to learn - not only about the mistakes they’ve made but also about the men in their lives and the women they are each hoping to become.

Pass

I usually like Liz Talley's stories but this one doesn't quite do it for me. The daughter is selfish, narcissistic and acts like she's about 5. The mother was a bit better but not by much. Grow up people! Writers, please write the main characters as decent, smart, grown ups!

Really?

When I began listening to this I thought maybe it was some kind of ironic feminist take on 'Chicklit' but, as it went on, I realised it was just really really bad writing. The cardboard cut-out 'characters', the stereotypical male-female sexual dynamics and breathy formulaic dialogue did take my breath away - but with disbelief that anyone could write such mush in the 21st century.
