Terry Mcmillan returns to our favourite girls, at last!!. She takes us back to where she left off 15 yrs ago. I think it was worth the wait. The ladies have moved on with their lives, but some things remain the same - you will need to read the book to find out what.

I absolutely love this book. Im not the biggest reader, so I have to choose my titles very carefully. Once I pick this up I cant put it down, unless I am literally half asleep! Thank you Terry McMillan. PS I cannot wait till the film comes out!

A great read. Felt like catching up with old friends. Picked up right where we left off. Hit the ground running and never looked back.

I was so eager to read this and overjoyed to receive it. The book continues a bit later and our characters have grown, evolved and changed a lot. I like that there were ups and downs for all characters, it wasn't just a happy book but I wish certain characters had less tribulations in this book because of their past sad histories.

I loved it and was sad to finish. I hope there will be another

Took week to read book and get back into characters everyone focus changed mellowed over time. Terry as made sure ladies still remain core true friendship even with all lifes ups and downs not as good as waiting to exhale but still a good catch up into their lives. Recommend still a good read.
