Food writer Maggie Marrion is just getting back on her feet after a horrible year, or two, or three. With their twentieth reunion approaching, she invites four of her closest friends from college for a weekend at her beach cabin on Whidbey Island. What she doesn't expect is her best friends, artist Quinn Dayton and part-time erotica novelist, Selah Elmore, to play matchmaker. The two plot a surprise that will make the weekend, and her life, a lot more interesting.
Gil Morrow, former grunge musician
turned history professor, joins them as Selah's date for the weekend.
After coming face to face with the one who got away, he decides he's
waited long enough to get the girl. With the support of old friends, a
few wishing rocks, the world's largest burrowing clam, and a hot
lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie that forty-something
isn't too old for second chances.
Can we learn to love the life
we have and let go of who we expected to be? What happens when the
generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big
Chill? Come spend a weekend with these Generation X-ers as they share
laughter, tears, life's ups and downs, old stories, and new beginnings. From Goodreads.
I really enjoyed this. I read a lot of young adult books and it was nice to read a book of adult love and second chances. It is about friends that are still friends despite their very different lifestyles. I liked their scrabble board and that is all I will say about that. I will definitely read more in this series at some point.
