TITLE: THE HOT FLASH CLUB
AUTHOR: NANCY THAYER
When Faye, Marilyn, Alice and Shirley meet they are four women dealing with the menopause, with problems in their lives.
Faye is worried about her daughter's marriage; her son in law may be conducting an affair.
Marilyn is worried about her son's upcoming marriage; is his fiancee only interested in him because of his money?
For Alice, her job has been her life for a long time, but now it appears that a younger colleague is trying to replace her. And the thought of not having her work terrifies her.
and Shirley dreams of opening her own health spa, but lacks the confidence and business sense to follow her dream.
The four women decide to sort out each others problems, creating some havoc along the way. But they also discover that life holds opportunities regardless of age; that getting out of your comfort zone brings it's own rewards; that friendship carries you through most if not all situations and that you're never too old to learn new things or turn over a new leaf.
A fun and inspiring book, with a very hopeful message. Chick-lit with depth, because we really never stop being chicks at heart.
