A few months after breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Zoe Saldivar realizes just how isolated she's become in her life. Her best friend Jen is too busy being a new mom. Working full-time from home, Zoe has no colleagues to discuss anything with and finds herself conversing with her cat frequently. When she confides in Jen's mother, Pam, her life goes from calm to crazy. Pam sets Zoe up with her son Steven, then Zoe finds out her widower father is interested in possibly dating Pam, a widow herself. In the midst of this, Jen seems to be going through postpartum anxiety and is rejecting help from everyone. Zoe, Pam, and Jen must rely on friends, family, and one another to find their inner strength to resolve their issues.
VERDICT Mallery is the master of blending emotionally believable characters in realistic situations. Her engaging and comically touching third novel in the "Mischief Bay" series (The Friends We Keep; The Girls of Mischief Bay) continues to satisfy lovers of women's fiction.
