I received a review copy

then comes loveSummary:

Three generations of women,
Three second loves,
All with a dose of chaos mixed in.

Sometimes in life, changes can be good…
After losing her husband, her five cats, and her home, Charlotte Noel hates feeling dependent. As Charlotte tries to find her identity in this new stage of life, she comes to realize that drama never ends, dance aerobics can be a war zone, and love is always a possibility.

You never know when a midlife crisis is going to strike…

Charlotte’s daughter, Annie, is going through struggles of her own. Recently divorced, she is feeling frumpy and worn-out. Run ragged, Annie mourns her youth and wonders where her life is headed, all while hoping she can help her daughter Amelia get it together.

Settling down can be overrated, especially when you’re falling for a rock star look-alike…

Amelia is the wild child of the family. Working three jobs, because she just hasn’t figured out what she wants in life, she realizes happiness isn’t always settling down with a steady, dependable man; sometimes it’s about following your true passion and living on the edge.

No matter what age you are, life and love can be crazy…


I just LOVE books with different story lines, especially this one one with the three generations of women. The author did a fabulous job of making each story interesting and thought provoking, while still keeping each relevant to the other two. My favorite storyline was probably Charlotte’s. Her life in the nursing home was so funny. All three stories were relatable and featured story lines that would actually happen in real life. I found the characters very engaging – there wasn’t one storyline I was unimpressed with. This was a great summer read, and I really recommend this sweet story of family love.
