3.5 stars. Well written and engaging. I really enjoyed the different issues each woman faced. I was most fascinated by Deanna. She was prickly and disliked by everyone but the reader got to know her well. Wonderful nuanced depiction of how someone can be misjudged. I also enjoyed how the friendship of the three women evolved.
The relationship with the three men in their lives felt peripheral. Strangely, the romance parts felt quite un-sexy. I found no romantic chemistry with any of the couples. But that is ok because I was really enjoying the story as it unfolded for each of the women.
