Cherokee England ("Ricki")
is a member of a support group called "Women Aware and Responsive
(WAR)," for women who have problematic relationships. WAR attempts
to right acts against women and minorities.
Ricki and her two closest
friends, Melanie and Charlie, form a vigilante group which actively addresses
wrongs that WAR does not. In the pursuit of their endeavors they become
involved in various situations, some of which are very hilarious. There
are many humorous escapades involving the three women which provoke many
laughs from the reader.
Ricki is recently divorced
and is still in love with her ex-husband. However she becomes involved
with homicide detective named Sam Arnold. Ricki is striving to find a
life for herself and she wants to live life to its fullest.
The story is well-told.
The relationship between Ricki and her best friend, Charlie, is well-developed.
The style of the book is fast-paced. The dialogue between the characters
is breezy and witty and is written in a way that sounds conversational
and real. The issues that WAR addresses are real and they are treated
in-depth and with understanding. There's quite a bit of sex in the book,
both conversational and physical.
It is an engaging story
and is a delight to read.
