[ ] Wear a bikini in public 

[ ] Start living

Two best friends jump-start their lives in a summer that will change them forever....

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.

Just okay

I love a book that revolves around friendship. Throw in some romance, interesting secondary characters, some humor and a reasonable storyline and I am hooked. This was not that book for me. Ellen is a single mom and has raised a terrific son, but in all other parts of her life she hit pause and has remained there for 17 years. Unity is a widow and is has not moved on from the day she found out her beloved husband was killed. They’re childhood friends who are more like sisters so accept who and where they are and don’t push each other too hard to move forward. After some gentle and some not so gentle loving prodding they both change in moments in very unrealistic and immature ways. I like all of the supporting characters and was happy for the expected ending, but I am a it’s the journey not the destination kind of reader. I didn’t really enjoy this journey. I know I am in the minority, so if you’re as big a fan of this author read it anyway or you’ll feel like you missed out on something.

Shallow and disappointing

I am a fan of Susan Mallery, but not this book. There didn’t seem to be an interesting plot. The women characters were weak and dramatic for no good reasons. Without giving away the plot or any of the unnecessary fear and drama, I will say if you are expecting a typical good story from this author you will be disappointed.

Implausible and Insipiid

I am a big fan of Susan Mallory and have read most of her books. I couldn’t even finish this one. I kept waiting for it to get better—and I got about 60% through it—but it didn’t. I just found the idea of two young women stuck in place for so long implausible and what transpired afterwards was too predictable.

Not her best writing to me

I look forward to reading each of Susan Mallory's books and love her writing. This book does not represent her best writing because by the end of it, I still was on the outside observing the story instead of immersed in it. I knew where it was going and there really wasn't anything that grabbed me and pulled me in our a plot twist or two that kept me in suspense. Narrating did the usual good job. It's still a nice story two women moving on in their lives.
