Madeline Singer is a homemaker whose life has just been turned upside down. She has an unemployed husband and a bad case of empty nest syndrome, but the latest turn of events has her reeling and wondering how she got to this place in life.
Avery Lawford, the former sidekick of a home improvement show of her ex-husband’s, is in another bind after finding out her father’s estate has been stolen
Nikki Grant is a professional matchmaker who has had to resort to selling off her possessions in order to stay afloat. The financial planner she trusted has fleeced her and many others out of their life savings and now all that’s left is a share in a rundown beach front property.
These three women, and a few others thrown in the mix, show up to see what they can possibly do to get their money back from the sale of a home that is in need of many repairs. Friendships are formed, lines are crossed and secrets are what they have to deal with from this motley crew.
Wow! What a story taken straight from today’s headlines. And such an exceptional choice of characters, each has her own issues as well as those brought on by this Ponzi scheme. I so admire each one’s journey and love the way they fight back and become richer in spirit for it. What a great read by Wendy Wax. I look forward to reading more of her work.
