I HATED THIS BOOK. I hated everything about this book. I hated the idea of it (rejoining the characters 10yrs later) I hated the choppy story line and how she jumped from one character to the next. Though mostly (and I wouldn’t have even thought this possible) I HATED THE CHARACTERS! What the hell did you do?! James is a lying, con man bigamist….. wait what?

I have rarely been so disappointed by a novel before. McMillan has taken 4 strong, intelligent, independent women from Waiting to Exhale, and made 1 a drug addict, 1 a pushover mom/desperate single woman, 1 a widow, and 1 a divorcee. All of which wouldn’t be the worst thing in literature, but McMillan has made their strong bonds of friendship minimal when compared to finding a man. When one character is widowed, her friends are more concerned with her weight gain than her mental well-being.
