First things first- don’t let the cover fool you. It’s not about tennis.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when going into this book, but I love Jill Mansell’s writing. She is definitely one of the best adult contemporary writers I have read.

The book follows three friends- Pru, Liza and Dulcie who all make New Year’s Resolutions that they want to honestly stick to. Pru wants to stay married, Liza wants to get married, and Dulcie wants a divorce. I was hooked into their lives from the very start and wanted to see what happened and if they stuck to their resolutions as the book progressed.

The answer? No.

However, this doesn’t mean that it ends unhappily. I found myself smiling when all three of them got their happy endings, after all of the drama that got in the way. Dulcie got back with her husband. Pru got married, again, to someone she really liked, and Liza got her perfect man.

Overall it’s perfect to read around this time of year, and it’s the perfect fluffy, cutesy read for the end of the month. On top of it all, it’s a great story about friendship.

I’d definitely recommend it. It’s a lovely read, a little raunchy in places, but lovely.
4/5 stars.
