Publisher's summary

Maddy, Christine, and Amy, friends since college, are thrilled to learn their old suitemate's self-help book, How to Have a Perfect Life, has become a smashing bestseller - until they realize she used them as negative examples of how women let fear mess up their lives. The worst part is…it's sort of true. So, the three friends make a pact: They each have one year to face down their fears - and prove Miss Perfect wrong!

A free spirited artist - Maddy was always the artistic one of the group, full of life from her saucy red curls to her vintage hippie skirts. Her challenge, the friends decide, is to get her artwork accepted at a gallery. A job as arts director at a summer camp near Santa Fe - with its thriving art scene - seems like just the thing.

There's just one catch: The camp is run by Maddy's high school flame, Joe, whose heart she smashed when she chose her art over marriage to him. His anger over the breakup hasn't cooled one bit. But neither has their attraction. Old desires burn hotter than ever as Joe makes it clear there's only one way back into his heart: She has to get serious about the art career she once valued above all else. But will falling in love help or hinder Maddy as she struggles to meet her challenge?

Good But Urritating

I loved the story, but honestly, she doesn't learn, which is why Jane felt the need to use her as one of the examples of what to do. I cannot understand why it is so difficult to have a simple and mature conversation about reality. Instead, she prefers to live in denial and lie about everything, which is the same position she was in years ago. Maddie is driving me up the wall with her maturity level. Geez, still needs to grow up.

I'm sorry readers, I just needed to vent. Otherwise, it's a good story about 2nd chances and how we should take advantage of them and make use of of the opportunity when they come around. Good job Julie, the main character was just too annoying for something so simple.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
