ABOUT THE BOOK
Decades later, they're all back home in Clifden and reinventing their lives, but the holidays bring a whole new set of challenges. Abby’s new B and B is getting bad reviews and husband Paul is acting strange. Still grieving for her mom, Caroline is remodeling the family home, but boyfriend Mitch keeps pressuring her to go away with him. Artist Marley, distracted by a friend's family drama (and a touch of jealousy), can't find her creative groove. And Janie’s drug-addicted daughter has just appeared up on her doorstep! When a long-planned New Year's cruise turns into a bumpy ride, they learn once again that, in your fifties, friends aren’t just for fun—they're a necessity!

MY THOUGHTSThis book was a slow start for me, and I found Abby to be a bit irritating, but I did warm up to her! I think she was missing 'bit' of confidence. If you've ever had a close friend you'll find this book touching and it will bring back memories. This book is a great lesson on friendship and how it can survive through thick or thin, as well as how good friends will be there when you truly need them.
