Goodreads: Brimming with heart, humor, and a bit of mystery, this third book in Melody Carlson’s lively new Boomer series packs a poignant punch! Life is heating up for the four Lindas—and it’s not just hot flashes! Abby’s losing sleep over her husband’s health and neglecting her bed-and-breakfast dreams. Caroline may have waited too long to put her Alzheimer’s-afflicted mom in a care facility. Marley’s hard-won independence is threatened by her grown son’s neediness. And Janie’s having a hard time being everyone’s rock as the relationship she counted on falters. Add to that a house fire, a missing set of dishes, a bully brother, plus a half-crazy blonde named Donna, and things get really complicated. But with each new twist their lives take, the Lindas are learning that good friends are the best family a girl can have.
Ope’s Opinion: Melody Carlson continues to keep me reading in this third of four book series. She keeps developing each character while bringing in new people with twists and turns.
With each book there is a different one of the Linda’s I seem to relate more closely to. It is great to see women who gather around each other in all situations. They stay honest with each other through the ups and downs.
I am ready for the last one. I hope she finishes as strong as has been through the first three.
