Whitney Gaskill’s newest book will appeal to readers of both chick lit and women’s fiction. Told in a unique format, this is the story of three sisters. It is told from each of the sister’s viewpoint.


Paige is struggling with the fact that her husband, Scott has left her for another man. This would make any woman question her skills in the bedroom. For Paige it also makes her question her career choice as a divorce attorney.


Sophie, the middle sister is so caught up in her own emotional roller coaster. Her life has become complicated with a pregnancy. Sophie tends to suffer several emotional breakdowns daily. At this time in her life she’s not sure if she will survive the pregnancy, her first. If she does survive will her ballooning weight leave her looking like a beached whale?


The baby sister, Mickey has suffered the most by the disastrous marriage and subsequent divorce of her parents. Her own future is a point of contention as her entire family agrees on one thing...her acceptance to medical school is the best thing that could happen to her. How can she possibly tell them that she’s having second thoughts?


When Mickey’s interest in cooking leads her to a red hot but brief affair with a married chef things get ever more complicated. Then to top it off her parents start acting like newlyweds instead of the bitter enemies that they had been.


As different as each Cassel sister is they quickly find that there is no one like a sister. She is there when your life is crumbling around you.


You’ll find yourself laughing up a storm as this story unfolds for not only the three sisters, but the entire family. This reviewer is not only searching for the author’s backlist, but is also anxiously awaiting her future releases.
