This book looks great from the title,
anyone close to this age group needs to learn about the Fab fifties? I am getting so close to this age I can taste it! And I am NOT ready!!
Have a great Monday!

Really, I am interested in seeing how Hope quits the sniping and grows up. :) I think it is nice how she begins to learn from those around her. I am at the big 4-1 right now, and always willing to read about those next steps! Thanks for the giveaway!

I just became a follower for two reasons.

1- I totally want to win.
2- You are from New England, I miss New England (I am in Arizona now and use to live in Rhode Island and Maine). :)

Thanks again!

I'm not at 50 yet, but I have a number of friends who are. This book sounds like a lot of fun and a realistic look at that stage of life. It would be great to win.

Thanks for the chance.

I like the title. I am still a ways from 50, but I still want to see how she overcomes it all.

Kaye said...

I am looooong past 50 but I am curious to see how she dealt with everything. My oldest daughter is your age Kelly, so I could give her this book to see what she is in for.

Bingo said...

This interests me because I could only WISH 50 was in my vicinity so I guess I could write a book about 60 being the new 40??? I became a follower and am glad I am doing this Carnival as I found a great site here I hadn't been to. I hope you will visit me at BOOKIN' WITH BINGO! Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm going to be 50 in June. So far age hasn't bothered me and I'm wondering how I'll handle half a century! I think I really need this book! LOL.

Godiva said...

Hi.
Just stopping by via SITS.
I like your site.

Sandra K321 said...

This sounds like a book I would enjoy. I don't read the romance or mystery novels. I prefer more realistic story lines or non-fiction. Being 53, I think the story is even more fitting.

Heather said...

I want to see what happens when she brings home the puppy!

iggysaysno said...

I love any story with puppies... we have two and I think they're adorable!

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - From what I've heard, the 40's are still vital, but the 50's can be daunting - so I'd certainly like to know this book's opinion!

I read your review and I'm thrilled to see that the author handles this subject with wit and humor.

It sounds like the kind of book I'd enjoy and I'm *finally* taking enough time for myself to get back into reading again! :-)

It would be great to read a funny and positive book about being in one's 50's.
