I am ashamed to admit that I was attracted to this novel because I liked the cover art work, which just goes to show how important the cover art work is.
This would be classed as chick lit, however with the older main character this will appeal to an older audience.
The bulk of the action happens when the main character ally is on a road trip with her grown daughter and her ex-mother-in-law. This compresses the main people who have an effect on her life into a small group which makes the story simplified so easier to follow a complicated and normal life.
