Publisher's Summary

Three women meet at their 15-year class reunion...and discover that their lives have taken unexpected directions.

Back in their college days, Gretchen Wise had been engaged to a top law student. Carol Furness, head cheerleader, had said yes to the school’s football hero. And Maddie Cobain was the girl who’d fallen for a professor.

Now the three of them gather around a popular fountain on the college grounds. This fountain was where lovers met, where promises were made...and broken. So it’s fitting that Gretchen, Carol and Maddie sit here to share their stories of betrayal and, yes, revenge. Stories of finding new love... Sometimes the things you don’t plan are the best!

Glad when it was over.

The story was okay but felt like I was getting directions instead of listening to a book.

ZZZZZZzzzzz

I love Debbie but from the get go I couldn't get into this. The narrator is robotic and no differentiation between character voices. I listened for 2 hours and can barely tell you a thing. :o/

The story was a bit different than the usual story line and the story kept me listening!!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the three stories all connected and it kept me guessing. I really didn't know how it was all going to work out.

Started 3x Before Reading...Then I was Hooked

It took me awhile to get accustomed to the narrator and the story...it initially didn't peak my interest. Once I started listening to the stories of the individuals then I was hooked into the storylines! :)

The narrator left something to be desired, but overall she was ok - just not one of my favorite narrators. She performed well in distinguishing the characters which was a plus.

A Good Yarn

I quite enjoyed this story although I found it a challenge keeping all the stories together and remembering who was who by the end.

Sweet story of 3 women finding unexpected love.

Great story!

I really enjoyed this story-it was pretty fresh-not just re-hashing old storylines. I wasn't thrilled with the narrator - she pauses at odd times. I'd suggest you listen to the sample before purchase- she's NOT terrible- just different- I still really enjoyed the book.

Cute Story!

It was overall a cute book, but by the time I got to the end, I forgot who was with whom. Loved the epilogue...
