"Best Book of August 2020."—CNN.com
A witty, heartfelt and irresistible story about two best friends determined to help one another shake things up and live life to the fullest in a summer that will change them forever.
Susan Mallery, #1 New York Times bestselling author of California Girls and Sisters by Choice, has delivered the perfect escape about the power of female friendship and the importance of making your dreams come true.
Single mom Ellen Fox couldn't be more content—until she overhears her son saying he can't go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she's living hers.
So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What's wrong with a thirtysomething widow still sleeping in her late husband's childhood bed?
The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they're just fine. But somewhere between "wear three-inch heels" and "have sex with a gorgeous guy," Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos.

This was just OK. I knew where it was going about a quarter of the way through, and that predictability made it boring. I was determined to finish just in case the author decided to get creative. But no - the irritating characters ended up with unbelievable "happily ever after" lives. Yes, it's chick-lit, but flat, uninspired chick-lit.

Two 34-year-old best friends challenge each other to improve themselves and revamp their apparently empty lives. One is an unmarried single mom, the other a widow - both are rescued by hunky (author's term) guys who are amazing sex partners for their respective new girlfriends. Regardless of the author's attempts, the book's message seems to be if the sex is good, life is good. And marriage will solve all problems.

The novel's premise sounded entertaining, but this was not a fun read. It contained annoying and immature characters, unrealistic behavior, and two gratuitous recipes at the end. I can't recommend this book.
