Publisher's Summary

On Washington Avenue in Moonlight, Mississippi, four friends, single and over 50, find themselves in the age-old conundrum - they're too old to be young, but way too young to be old. All of them are ready for another chance at love. But when that chance comes to each of them, it brings startling surprises and secrets that threaten their hopes for love.

Better than I'd expected

This is one of those books that I always hesitate starting. I am more into a fast paced, thrilling, supernatural, twisting plotted tales with storylines that I can usually deduce the ending of but are so intriguing I can't put them down. So, when I pick up a book that seems to be mainly about people and their lives, I hesitate. Then I get sucked into the story, as I did with this one.

The characters are fun, vibrant, strong women. They are all of a mature age and have lived through many life events. They are all well rounded, intelligent individuals.

While the book is about them and their lives, it's even more about love and friendship. Love weaves throughout their lives and relationships.

Familial love, sisterly, best friendship love, and romantic love all play a part in this interesting take of the women of Washington Avenue. There are secrets, a mystery, and romance in the book. While it wasn't a pulse pounding, action filled story, it did keep me wanting to find out what would happen.

I felt that the narrator added a lot to the book. She voiced the characters well and put plenty of emotion into their stories. You can easily tell which character is speaking and how they are feeling. I think she did a great job.

Loved, Loved, Loved this book

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I wasn't sure what I was getting in to with this book, but I absolutely loved it. You don't find many books that address the passion in an older woman's life. There is life after 50, after all. The author did a great job of bring humor into the lives of these women. You need to listen carefully because it addresses the lives of four women and their closeness in a small southern town. In places it was soooo funny, and in other places I had to find a tissue. The narrator, Terri England, did a great job with these women, the men in their lives and their families. Great job on the southern accent. Looking forward to more stories on the lives of these four women.

The Best Kind of Friendship

The Women of Washington Avenue have the sort of bond that inspires the best in each one of them. This is the base of their stories, romances and dilemmas. Author Linda Apple imbues personality in each character. Narrator voice Terri England keeps each one separately identifiable. I enjoyed the story even through a few predictable sections. After all, we know there will be happy endings and solved mysteries. While I prefer reading to audiobooks this was done well enough. The drawback was England’s representation of male voices. And I did wonder why the Southern belle who lived in NYC for decades had the strongest down home accent. And there is copious description of eating and drinking. Never mind. It’s a fun book. Relax and enjoy.

A trip to the south

A lovely story about all the eccentric characters that are the women of the south. They care about each other and you will care about them and their stories. The narrator does a good job of putting you in Mississippi. I enjoyed this book.
