Enjoyed reading this book. It was a bit predictable, but very descriptive and even almost a bit too much fluff. I would still recommend it because it was a great story about "life events". Made me feel grateful for what I have.

I loved this book until the last 50 pages. pretty much the only happy endings i enjoyed were Vicki, Melanie is still with the ass who cheated on her, Brenda financial problems are not resolved, although i did like her being with Walsh in the end. and we don't get the full idea for Josh who is like the best character in the novel. It may of began beautifully and ideal, it ended horribly in my opinion
