From the Jacket

"Wickham serves up a healthy dose of good-natured witticisms mixed with biting retorts."
-Publishers Weekly

Roxanne: glamorous, self-confident, with a secret lover-a married man

Maggie: capable and high-achieving, until she finds the one thing she can't cope with-motherhood

Candice: honest, decent, or so she believes-until a ghost from her past turns up
