Goodreads:  In the final book in Melody Carlson’s popular series, the four Lindas learn that life doesn’t stop for the holidays and even a cruise can rock your boat.  
Here’s to Friends carries our favorite fifty-somethings through the holidays to a New Year cruise to a romantic hometown wedding with plenty of bumps in between. As they struggle to reinvent themselves at midlife—coping with marital woes, a creative crisis, a financial tsunami, a prodigal child and (scariest of all!) a home remodel—Abby, Janie, Caroline and Marley must all come to terms with the need to give their worries over to God. And they learn once more that in your fifties, friendships aren’t just fun. They’re an absolute necessity!

Ope’s Opinion:  This was the final book in the Four Linda’s series. It was nice to see all the friends move  on with their friendships and other relationships.  

I really liked how Melody Carlson let you know how each character ended up.  It was good to see some real changes.  I also liked that all was not rosey – it was realistic.  Each character had things to deal with and they weren’t all solved at the end, but you did feel like the book came to a good ending.

These friendships are very encouraging.  It is so nice to see supportive female relationships. I am going to miss these characters.

Thanks for the writing Melody Carlson!

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
