Five Fortunes - Beth Gutcheon

Rating: 5 out of 5
Pages: 398
Challenges: 2008 TBR, (F: Title)

This is a book about 5 women who meet at a fat camp:

Jill – who has issues in her past that are coming back forcing her to deal with them.
Amy – her marriage is falling apart and she is trying to help her daughter Jill deal with her issues.
Carter – a private detective who’s case has taken a personal toll
Laurie – she has recently lost her husband and is trying to deal with her grief
Rae – a wealthy older woman who has been to the fat camp 22 times and is dealing with the deteriorating health of her husband

They meet at the fat farm and become friends. The book details how their lives intersect as they go back to their lives and leave and still interact with each other and help each other. Laurie decides to run for a local political race and some of her friends join her. Jill and Carter strike up a friendship and Jill helps Carter with one of her investigations.

It’s hard to describe this book without giving a lot away, but I will say that I LOVED it! I would highly recommend reading it. It kept me entertained and I wanted to keep turning the pages to know what was happening.
