183 Times a Year by Eva Jordan Summary

Mothers and daughters alike will never look at each other in quite the same way after reading this book—a brilliantly funny observation of contemporary family life. Lizzie—exasperated Mother of Cassie, Connor and Stepdaughter Maisy—is the frustrated voice of reason to her daughters’ teenage angst. She gets by with good friends, cheap wine and talking to herself—out loud. 16-year-old Cassie—the Facebook-Tweeting, Selfie-Taking, Music and Mobile Phone obsessed teen—hates everything about her life. She longs for the perfect world of Chelsea Divine and her 'undivorced' parents—and Joe, of course. However, the discovery of a terrible betrayal and a brutal attack throws the whole household into disarray. Lizzie and Cassie are forced to reassess the important things in life as they embark upon separate journeys of self-discovery—accepting some less than flattering home truths along the way. Although tragic at times this is a delightfully funny exploration of domestic love, hate, strength and ultimately friendship. A poignant, heartfelt look at that complex and diverse relationship between a Mother and daughter set amongst the thorny realities of today’s divided and extended families.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ramie Phillips has led a very successful life. She made her fortune, and now she hob nobs with the very rich and occasionally the semi-famous. She enjoys luxuries she only dreamed of as a middle-class kid growing up in Potomac, Maryland. But despite it all, she can’t ignore the fact that she isn’t necessarily happy. In fact, lately Ramie has begun to feel more than a little empty. On a boat with friends off the Florida coast, she tries to fight her feelings of discontent with steel will and champagne. No one even notices as she gets up and goes to the diving board and dives off... Suddenly, Ramie is waking up, straining to understand a voice calling in the distance.... It’s her mother: "Wake up! You're going to be late for school again. I'm not writing a note this time...." Ramie finds herself back in time to the eve of her eighteenth birthday, with a second chance to see the people she’s lost and change the choices she regrets. How did she get back here? Has she gone off the deep end? Has she really gone back in time? Above all, she’ll have to answer the question that no one else can: What it is that she really wants from the past, and for her future?

Rich and Pretty by Rumaan Alam Summary

A sharp, insightful portrait of how the relationship between two best friends changes when they are no longer coming of age but learning how to live adult lives, set against a backdrop of moneyed New York City Meet Sarah and Lauren. Rich and pretty, respectively. They first met twenty years ago at a tony Manhattan private school (Sarah the Queen Bee and Lauren the new kid, of course), and have been inseparable ever since. Best friends through thick and thin, high school and college, first jobs and first loves, the growing pains of their twenties and the settling down of their thirties. But come to think of it, can you still call them best friends if they don’t see each other that often, don’t really know what to say to each other anymore, and are living completely different lives? Lauren is single and working in publishing, deflecting her parents’ worries and questions about her life and future in New York City by trying not to think about it herself; Sarah’s engaged with wedding planning and charity work taking the place of a job. Both friends envy certain aspects of each other’s lives, and are privately horrified by other parts-and their linguistic dance-arounds to avoid those topics of conversation are masterful. With impeccable style, biting humor, and a keen observational eye, Rich and Pretty looks at what happens when the friendships we form in childhood change and adapt as our lives shift from school to work, from first crushes to breakups to weddings, and captures the way in which the bonds of friendship remain strong even when our paths and circumstances diverge.

One Less Problem Without You by Beth Harbison Summary

Meet Prinny, Chelsea and Diana. Prinny is the owner of Cosmos, a shop that sells crystals, potions, candles, and hope. It’s also a place where no one turns down a little extra-special cocktail that can work as a romance potion or heal a broken heart. But Prinny is in love with her married lawyer and she’ll need nothing short of magic to forget about him. Chelsea works as a living statue at tourist sites around Washington, DC. It's a thankless job, but it helps pay the rent. That, and her part-time job at Cosmos. As her dream of becoming a successful actress starts to seem more remote and the possibility of being a permanently struggling one seems more realistic, Chelsea begins to wonder: at one point do you give up on your dreams? And will love ever be in the cards for her? Diana Tiesman is married to Leif, a charismatic man who isn’t faithful. But no matter how many times he lets her down, Diana just can't let him go. She knows the only way she can truly breakaway is if she leaves and goes where he will never think to follow. So she ends up at Cosmos with Leif’s stepsister, where she makes her homemade teas and tinctures as she figures out whether she'd rather be lonely alone than lonely in love. In Beth Harbinson's One Less Problem Without You, three women suddenly find themselves together at their own very different crossroads. It will take hope, love, strength and a little bit of magic for them to find their way together.
