Publisher's Summary

Dear (almost) everyone: Can we be friends again?

Life is about to get complicated for Amelia Montgomery, a prominent litigator in Chicago. She’s been fired for not compromising her principles in a high-profile case and then punching her partner in the nose for the misogynistic comment he made in retort (not her finest moment). Leaving a career that gave her purpose, Amelia can only ask, What next?

Let it be better than her epic failure of a fortieth birthday party: an open bar full of no-shows except for John Ellis, a total stranger and the new associate at her ex-firm. As it turns out, though, he’s very good company - and a wake-up call. With the help of John and a lot of champagne, Amelia considers the people she’s wronged, from old besties to former boyfriends to coworkers. Amelia resolves to make amends - to those who really deserve it.

One apology at a time, Amelia’s looking at the choices she’s made in the past, the new ones she’s making with John, and those she’s making for herself. What next? Maybe a second chance she never expected.

Can’t get over the ending

I was really enjoying the book until Amelia was actually challenged with her new growth and progress. Her treatment of John was unbelievable. She gave him absolutely no opportunity to come to terms with the morally difficult situation he found himself in. She completely and harshly abandoned him. In the end, she learned she completely misjudged him. But he still had to come graveling back to her??? I agree they should have ended up together, but to display her growth, Amelia should have realized her gross error, and been apologetic to John.

The narrator was pretty great except several of her “voices” of people in the 40s. She had them sounding more like their 70s.

an excellent read

I have a lot of favorite novels, and I think this is one of my top 100. It's an excellent story. Escudero doesn't dumb down the characters. This is a fictional work of integrity and morality and grace.

Nice story, wrong character but excellent narration

Nice feel good message but the main character is not credible. A forty year old woman, a tough, seasoned lawyer on top of that yet behaves like someone half her age. If that can be overlooked somehow, book is still enjoyable thanks to an excellent narration.

Meaningful but monotonous

I LOVE Karen Peakes, and without her, I would’ve quit a few chapters in. She can do so much more, but the author didn’t capitalize on her depth, humor or sarcasm. I laughed out loud a few times, but with this plot, I should have laughed more. The story does make you think, and the message is great, but overall, the story is just okay.

Underlying message is good, execution is juvenile

Yeah, that pretty well sums it up. A good message but very lame delivery, superficial and predictable. The 23 and Me / genetic subplot was unnessecary and self-serving. I can’t totally condemn the story because it does have a positive message, but it was just soooo predictable.
