Four Boston divorcées look for sex, love, babies – and freedom.
Jess Marlowe didn’t mean to fall out of love with her husband, or to have a passionate affair with a grad student. Now the marriage and the affair are over and Jess has a chance to make a fresh start. Problem is, she has no idea how to go about doing that!
Nell Keats had it all – money, a loving marriage to a man she adored, and two smart children. But her entire world fell apart the day her husband told her he was leaving her for another man. After almost twenty years out of the dating scene, Nell is bewildered by the new mores – and determined to play the dating game her way.
Laura, Nell’s younger sister, wanted a baby. Her ex-husband didn’t. Now Laura’s on a mission to find a man to marry her and father her child – and love’s got nothing to do with it.
Grace Henley is still financially – and emotionally – supporting her ex, a promising artist whose greatest talents were in bed – with other women. Now it’s time for Grace to cut the cord – but she finds letting go even harder than hanging on.
