What Happy Hour is about:
Every woman has that group of friends in her life ~ her "go to girls" The friends that she can turn to who "get it." The ones who are there for you no matter what. The ones who laugh with you and cry with you. The ones that will always be there. These are the women of Napa Valley.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I think I suffer from some misconception that the "free" books are not always the highest caliber of writing or story. I can honestly say that I've been proven wrong! The author wrote a very readable story with a great plot, depth, and characters that you could really identify with and root for during their tough moments in life. I was lucky to have been able to read and discuss this with a group of women who are just as varied as the four women in this novel. We all felt some type of connection to one or more of the characters and could easily empathize with their heartaches! The best part of this book was that the women came together every Sunday to eat, drink wine, and share. I really liked that type of bonding and friendship!!
Recommend? Absolutely! Especially to those that love books that are about women, friendship, love, heartache, and realizing life-long dreams. And it's a steal for $2.99!!

I'm often hesitant about free Kindle books as well for the same reason. Glad you found a good one to share with us.ReplyDelete

I have a copy of this that I won a while ago so I'm glad to know it's good. I know what you mean about the free books - I'm always skeptical too.ReplyDelete
Well that which you say in recommend just sums up what I would want :)ReplyDelete
I've read a couple of freebies that were good reads too.ReplyDelete
Sometimes ebooks are free for a short period of time to bring up the number of sales and get it to more readers. It's fun to try them. And if the book doesn't suit one's taste, it's no loss.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you enjoyed this one Staci. I hope to finish it soon. Hopefully after everything settles down I can get back to reading more.ReplyDelete
I wish my go to girls lived close enough for a weekly wine and dessert gab fest! Looks like fun.ReplyDelete
