In this third installment of adventures of "women of a certain age," Thayer takes us on a tour of a year, from Christmas to Christmas. Shirley's Spa is growing in popularity, and the five friends continue their sharing, support, and humor. Carrington MacDuffie manages to give each of the five women a clear voice, using accent, tone, and energy to create unique personalities. The plot is loaded with the challenges presented by adult children, needy parents, romance, and health issues. If you're looking for a realistic look at what life is like in the "hot flash time warp," look elsewhere. If you want a laugh-filled diversion, this may well be your ticket.
