Zoe Saldivar is more than just single-she's ALONE. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it's up to her to stop living in isolation.
Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated-her first new friend is Jen's widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen's brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe's own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam's flustered, Jen's annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think "alone" doesn't sound so bad, after all.
Going to start by saying i have not read the first two books in this series. You don't need to read the first two to read this one. The books in this series are always about 3 different women that connect with each other on some level and what goes on in their lives. If you read the blurb you can get the gist of what each of the women have going on. While the book was interesting in places it's a little to real life for me. A little depressing and cringe worthy in places and i am looking to escape real life. Jen who was the most annoying of the three ladies in the beginning became my favorite at the end. Pam seems to be the one who has it the most together becomes the most annoying and Zoe who was the most likable at the beginning was just kind of meh by the end. For me the men were the most entertaining and was what made me continue reading the book. I am thinking Chick lit might not be my cup of tea. I like what i read in the blurb but once is started reading the interest i had in the story started to wane and finally i just wanted to get to the end.
