I love this book, but before I go any further, I want my readers to know that this book contains language. I tend to shy away from such books, especially those that drop the f-bomb. However, this was a book club selection, so I persevered. And I'm glad I did because the characters were riveting!
This story is menopause mixed with feminist revenge with a slash of superhero and black magic. Despite the serial killer theme, the women are delightful. As a woman who has lived through midlife and experienced the glass ceiling and groping hands and roving eyes of unwanted men, I found myself in each character - the good girl trying to follow the rules, the livid one ready to make the world pay, and the crazy one who decides that gardening naked isn't such a bad idea after all. Generally, I think I am a pretty even compilation of all three, which is why I connected so easily with this trio.
Of course, Kirsten Miller does an excellent job weaving a tale for these characters which allows us to experience them in all their glory. What I think I loved most was that the book was both angry yet loving, hard as nails, yet soft, tragic yet humorous. I would rate this 5-stars except for the language, but even with the f-bomb, it gets a solid 4.8. ,
