Life is heating up for the four Lindas-and it's not just hot flashes! Abby's losing sleep over her husband's health and neglecting her bed-and-breakfast dreams. Caroline mahave waited too long to put her Alzheimer's-afflicted mom in a care facility. Marley's hard-won indenpendence is threatened by her grown son's neediness. And Janie's having a hard time being everyone's rock as the relationship she counted on falters. Add to that a house fire, a missing set of dishes, a bully brother, plus a half-crazy blonde named Donna, and things get really complicated. But with each new twist their lives take, the Lindas are learning that good friends are the best family a girl can have.
This fun book would make a great chick flick! The third book in 'The Four Lindas' series, this fun story follows 4 friends (all named Linda) living out the mid to later half of their lives with vigor. You read from each woman's perspective (each goes by her middle name) individually, which gives this book a personal feel and each of their personalities and situations are drastically different. But they have two things in common- their shared first name and their faith in God. I enjoyed this book, but believe it could be even more enjoyable to ladies a bit closer to the ages of the women in the book. Over all a fun read!
