One Good Friend Deserves Another

Dhara, Kelly, Marta & Wendy have been the closest of friends since college, so close, in fact, that after a series of communal romantic disasters, they bond together to create rules of relationships meant to keep their hearts safe.

Now, at the far side of thirty-five, those rules seem to have worked for them—country-club Wendy, a curator of a small local museum, is due to marry a longtime boyfriend in an over-the-top wedding; Marta, a high-powered Latina partner in a white-shoe law firm, is living in luxury with a sexy Cuban entrepreneur; Kelly, the tech-geek computer programmer, seems happy in her introverted singlehood.

Only Dhara, an Indian-American cardiologist, is struggling after the abrupt end of a long-term relationship. When she suddenly decides to agree to a traditional arranged marriage, her girlfriends gather in the hopes of stopping her from making a terrible mistake.

As old relationships crumble and dangerous new ones emerge, the girls begin to realize that the rules that they made to keep their hearts safe may have also shielded them from the risky possibilities of true love.

My thoughts...

A light read filled with the charm of college aged characters instead of the mid 30's that they are. Each of them have hurdles to overcome and the way they stand up for each other is refreshing. Good storyline but I would've liked it better without all the sexual premises, I prefer more of a clean read. So this one gets 3.5 out of 5 stars from me.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
