Linda, Bette, Gemma, and Augusta are four lifelong friends who live in Montreal. This year they're all going to turn fifty, so they decide to take a trip to New York together (courtesy of Linda's philandering husband's Visa Platinum).

When they kill an aggressive cab driver with pepper spray, the four friends know this is not going to be the trip of shopping and Broadway shows they'd expected.

A series of miscommunications and mishaps entangles the friends even further into the criminal underworld of New York. But out of all the bad luck (Linda's husband is staying at the same hotel as the friends, with his new girlfriend) and bad people (mobsters, drug addicts, and Linda's husband) emerge four fifty-year-old avengers of truth and justice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not her best i love love love LOVE Leslie Crewe however I found this book wasn't as captivating as her others. Usually I can pick up her book and not put it down until it's finished however I found this this one I had to force myself to read it. It was a good read and I do recommend it, it just wasn't my favorite of hers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very entertaining Well, Lesley's done it again. Another crazy adventure with lovable characters. I found myself laughing out loud at moments and really rooting for these four 50 year old women, who just want a nice vacation, but get caught up in NYC's dark underworld. A must read for anyone who has read Lesley's other book, 'Shoot Me'.
