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.

Welcome back old friends. I have experienced so many of the things each character has experienced, it is almost uncanny how Terry McMillan is able to write my life without meeting me!! As with all Terry's book I smile, I laugh out loud and I cry - a real pleasure to get engrossed in Getting to Happy!!

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.

Her books always make me cry at one point or other and this book is no exception. At first I thought oh great, I'm losing the storyline already as I couldn't remember the characters but as I kept reading the funny parts appear and the very sad parts hit you in the face. I may not be as great as all her other books but she can still hold her own in the literary department.

Very, very disappointed with this book and thought it was a waste of time going back to the girls. Terry McMillan should have left them in our (good) memories. This book adds nothing to the first book and in my opinion is a poor sequel.

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!

This book is all that I thought it would be, some shockers though. I purposely left huge gaps while reading because I didn't want to finish it. The seller sent it to me promptly and in really good condition
