First half of book was hard to get through. But her sense of humor kept me going. I think it's based on a true story of an investment club that gets rich. A love story of sorts is intertwined. I like the "one liners" and could definetely see this made into a movie. ( )

Kind of a cute little book...the opening reads:
If you picked up this book looking for one of those bikini-ripping sagas about jet-setting beauties....forget it,. Except for the gorgeous Heidi, whose smallest gesture had grown men biting their palms and howling at the moon, the Larksdale Ladies were mostly a bunch of decent, ordinary women of carious ages and middle-class backgrounds.

The mostly-married, mostly-middle-aged members of the Mostly Methodist Club (Deborah Cohen made it “Mostly”) were used to swapping recipes, not stock tips. They’d taken few risks in their lives, and had even fewer adventures.
