Summary

The perennial New York Times bestselling author returns with an emotionally resonant novel that illuminates the power of friendship in women’s lives, and is filled with her trademark wit, poignant and timely themes, sassy, flesh-and-blood characters, and the steamy Southern atmosphere and beauty of her beloved Carolina Lowcountry. 
Few writers capture the complexities, pain, and joy of relationships—between friends, family members, husbands and wives, or lovers—as beloved New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank. In this charming, evocative, soul-touching novel, she once again takes us deep into the heart of the magical Lowcountry where three amazing middle-aged women are bonded by another amazing woman’s death. 
Through their shared loss they forge a deep friendship, asking critical questions. Who was their friend and what did her life mean? Are they living the lives they imagined for themselves? Will they ever be able to afford to retire? How will they maximize their happiness? Security? Health? And ultimately, their own legacies? 
A plan is conceived and unfurls with each turn of the tide during one sweltering summer on the Isle of Palms. Without ever fully realizing how close they were to the edge, they finally triumph amid laughter and maybe even newfound love.

    Dr. Jason Longfellow is a bored FDA drug reviewer in the midst of a serious midlife crisis. He has a shiny new convertible he can’t fit into, an exasperated wife who thinks he’s lost his mind, three daughters who always side with mom, and with a new PI license he fancies himself a modern-day Jessica Fletcher. What could go wrong? Carpooling to work one morning, Jason gets his first case when his attractive brunette passenger erupts into relentless spontaneous orgasms. Intent on clearing himself of any wrongdoing in the eyes of Mrs. Longfellow, Jason stumbles onto a chain of evidence that leads to CureStuff Pharmaceuticals, a clinical drug trial, and a number of improbably good-looking female suspects. Will Jason resist temptations of the flesh, solve the case and prove once and for all that he is at least as smart as his five-year-old? Or will his clever plans get him murdered . . . by his wife?
