The best part of this book is when I found myself in Kat I felt like I was reading about myself when I read her words I saw my friendships and my family relationships in those between the friends and their interactions with their family Their trials were believable I shared their tears and laughed out loud with their funny moments I saw the characters grow and heal and I enjoyed the journey that brought them through it The imagery Marriage, infidelity, divorce, death, children, food and winethe most delicious components that make up Happy Hour by the lovely and talented Michele Scott I absolutely love stories of women and friendships that come together naturally and the sisterhood bond we share because of the particular hardships women face We are introduced to each of the women at the very start with each having a chapter briefly describing where they came fromand then she moves to present day.
It was at times very sarcastic, romantic, tragic and uplifting but the bonds of friendship and the strength of each woman to deal with the cards life dealt to them was inspiring.
A beautifully written book for women about women, told with honesty, sincerity and humor Never stop living no matter what happensgrab that way too expensive bottle of wine and uncork it ↠´ Happy Hour â A heartwarming book about four friends who meet monthly for wine and friendship Chapters are written around each character.
Good read, thoroughly enjoyed I really enjoyed this book I m a sucker for books about women that deal with real life situations and how they handle them I could see a little of myself in each character and although I haven t experienced all that they ve gone through, I could sympathize with each of these women Maybe there s a sequel in the works A wonderful story about how much better life is when getting through with true friends Not just people you are friendly with, but true deep there for the tough stuff along with all of the good Marriage, divorce, step families, business successes and failures, illnesses and some great food and wine Good narration Audible.
com made for a delightful listen A little bit too much talk of religion and faith for me, but not overwhelming Its just there.
I am a sucker for a good woman s story, and this book is has 4 good stories It is lighthearted, heartbreaking, touching and funny.
I have to admit that I was reluctant when I first began this book I don t care for wine, or horses for that matter, so I went in a bit biased, thinking that it wouldn t be my style I couldn t have been wrong.
