A fabulously funny debut novel from Melissa Jacobs featuring five smart, sexy women struggling with life, love and each other in their 30s.
Meet the Council of Girlfriends: Grace, the relentless romantic; La Diva Lola, a celebrity chef with a secret sex life; Mamma Mia, who took the Husband and Children exit to the suburbs; the fabulous Ellie Archer, a journalist who follows her heart to Paris; and Mistress of the Universe/PR exec Lexi James, a heroine more Jo March than Bridget Jones.
Lexi has a lot of women in her life, but no man. She was engaged to Mr Almost Perfect, but called off the wedding after she had a meltdown in a suburban supermarket. Still dealing with the debris of that failed relationship, Lexi is terrified of making another commitment, and another mistake. Fortunately, everyone - from the members of the COG to the bubbies at the Jewish Retirement home where she volunteers - has some advice for Lexi on what she should do next.
