Friends Who Move Couches
“Think Sex and the City meets Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,” N.N. Light. “Emotional, gripping, humorous, and insightful, I recommend this book to women around the world.
Nikki Grey's idea of living dangerously is not wearing a seatbelt, yet calamity always finds her.
Married to a workaholic, mothering three rebellious kids, and feuding with neighborhood friends, Nikki forgets her problems one afternoon by smoking marijuana. That blunder ignites a lifelong medical condition, and she loses her driver’s license. Suddenly stranded in her home, she’s forced to stare out the window at women who have ostracized her.
Her true friends encourage her to concentrate on her health, but Nikki embarks on a scheme to win back neighborhood friends and plunges into efforts that only end in muddying her reputation. Not until her two-timing husband asks her a question that catapults her frivolous suburban life into a tailspin is she forced to stop reaching for others and stand on her own.
If you like novels about family struggles, friendship wars, quieting your inner critic, and surviving rejection, you’ll love Friends Who Move Couches, a laugh-out-loud yet insightful story every woman can relate to in some way.
