Reviewed by Laura Hinds

 

Isabel, Anna, Beth, and Maggie are successful businesswomen living in New York. On the surface, they have it all. Yet inside each struggles to cope with their careers, their men, and families.

Beth’s company makes lingerie for pregnant women which causes an uproar. While I didn’t understand why it would cause such protests and scorn, it is one of the main plot points in the story and in a way glues it all together.

Rinaldi takes the reader into each of the women’s lives separately and when they are together at work or socializing. It is a complicated story about complicated women, and at times I found myself having to backtrack to review their various relationships.

That said, it’s a good thing I was intrigued enough to do so, and I’m glad I did. This was ultimately a satisfying read, definitely chick-lit, and with a late June release date would make a great beach read.

The author’s first book “Maggie’s Plan” was made into a movie, and the author notes that her director friend, Rebecca Miller wants this book to be her next movie!
