Three 60-year old BFFs lives are simultaneously broadsided—Fifi a private-plane-rich Beverly Hills housewife; Lily, a celebrity herbalist; and Olive, a 21st century “sexy old maid” journalist.
Fifi’s husband drops dead, leaving her bankrupt. Lily is arrested for dealing weed because of her lowlife husband. Meanwhile, her house burns down. Olive learns she has the BRCA1 gene and needs a bilateral mastectomy to lower her risk for breast cancer. Her editor gives her one chance to write a smash hit story or her career is over.
After the homeless, husbandless, broke friends sob their eyes out over their downfall, Lily formulates a cream that erases their post-cry under eye bags, the active ingredient being CBD from, yes, weed.
Staying ahead of the bankruptcy courts, they sell Fifi’s estate at a garage sale, then sneak off to vault three million bucks.
Lily shares her under eye bag formula with Laine Marin, a venomous anti-drug DA candidate. Lily then launches her website with before and after pics of Laine.
Now the three are fugitives.
They hole up at an illegal grow deep in the forest where they’ve gone to acquire weed to produce the cream. Meanwhile they hope LA women will support them by voting for an initiative to legalize marijuana, which will save them AND their business.
All of this and the three have managed to fall in love along the way.
But Laine Marin has them tracked down and arrested, and reality really sets in.

But true love is not an easy path and between organizing the refurbishment of Alice-Rose, planning best friend Jules’ up and coming wedding and dealing with surly builder Paddy, not to mention Dan’s own family problems, the chances to get romance off to a start are few and far between and just when it looks like there might be a way forward something else happens to throw a spanner in the works…..but sometimes love is where you least expect it…..
This is a very warm and genuinely romantic book with likable characters and lovely descriptions of the Irish countryside and the residents in the small country town. I loved the details of Alice-Rose and could see it being put back together in my minds eye. Plenty of humour and a bit of ‘will they, won’t you’ make for a very enjoyable and feel good read.
