One good thing by Wendy Wax

4 Star

Embroiled in a battle to regain control of their renovation-turned-reality TV show, Do Over, Maddie, Avery, Nikki, and Kyra find themselves holding tight to the frayed ends of their friendship and relationships. 

Maddie must face the realities of dating a rock star once again topping the charts and dealing with her hapless ex-husband, while Avery is caught up in family drama even as she attempts to transform a tiny cottage into a home for the newly impoverished heiress who helped bankroll their last renovation. Put on bedrest, a hugely pregnant Nikki can’t quite believe love can last, nor can she trust in her own maternal instinct. And Kyra, who has secretly put Bella Flora at risk in an attempt to salvage Do Over, must decide whether to accept a desperately needed bail out from her son’s famous father that comes with far too many strings attached. 

But friendship is made for times like these, to keep each other—and their dreams—from crumbling.

Sabrina-Kate - 4 Star

A feel good novel where you suspect that the characters will triumph, despite it all, I enjoyed this book by Wendy Wax. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but that did not matter as this book also works on its own.

A story of friends, this is a book that shows the power of friendship, love and believing in yourself. The book definitely teaches some important lessons to those whose story it is, but it also made me reflect on my own life. Sometimes the trials of the characters were a bit insane, but in the end, I guess these things really could happen to anyone. Of course if those anyones were dating or involved with famous people or had been somewhat famous themselves.

I would equate this with the Steel Magnolias genre and feel that it could appeal to many different age groups as the characters themselves do. This is definitely a good summer read!
