Sunday Salon - Review: Hope in A Jar by Beth Harbison

Genre: Chick Lit

Allie Denty is shocked and hurt to discover her boyfriend sleeping with another woman. She wastes no time on kicking him out the door. She receives an invitation to her 20th high school reunion, which brings back all the memories of the mean girls at high school as well as the painful break up with her best friend, Olivia. The girls had a falling out and haven’t seen each other since. Today, Allie is a bit heavier and not feeling all that good about herself, but she attends the reunion anyway.

Olivia, who used to be a mousy girl but is now a successful beauty magazine editor, did not plan to attend the reunion. However, when she hears her mother is divorcing her fifth husband, Olivia decides to go anyway. Things are a bit awkward when she sees Allie.

Olivia and Allie put their differences aside when they learn a mutual high school friend is planning to marry one of the nasty girls from high school. This is one marriage they plan to stop.

I listened to the audio version of this one. It was a nice book to listen to in the car. The plot moved along well and I’m going to read more by this author. I have another book in my TBR and will eventually get to it. I enjoyed this.
