Love this book

This book holds a special place in my heart and I couldn't switch the audio book off just like I couldn't put the book down. Loved the multiple characters and how there lives unfolded over the weekend. It isn't your mca/b romance but there are hea and its a great tale with several tropes played out by each character. It's a story about how friendships can help you find yourself, reconnect with each other and find your future. Lots of laughs, angst and reminders why friends are important.

Entertaining

I liked that it was not a complete HEA atleast not from my point of view. Narrator did a very good job and I had a few lol moments.

Different than the status quo

This is a good novel. There’s a lot going on and it isn’t as formulaic as your run-of-the-mill lesfic book. Real life stuff is going on here. Good book, good narrator, a nice change of pace.
