Abby has no husband, no children, no living kin, and a painful family secret. Loiscell is a two-time breast cancer survivor facing recurrence with dwindling faith and courage. Sheila is a meek abused wife hiding behind a religious, volunteer-queen veneer. Estranged from her only child, Caroline “Choo-choo” Ivey desperately misses her late husband. All four of these women are contemplating ending their lives and they all feel they have no other choice to get out and this would be the easiest way.
One night the four friends go out for a meal together and discuss the possibility of hiring a hitman to take all four of them out. You can’t help but ask yourself, What drives someone to end such a precious gift as life? The author does a fantastic job in describing the lives of each one of these women and you build up an emotional connection with each one of them.
I couldn’t put this book down and wanted to know what happens to these four women. Even though the topic of this story is very dark there were several times where I was laughing out loud.
I love Rhett DeVanes storytelling there was never a dull moment. It was intriguing and a real page turner. This story encapsulates so perfectly the internal struggles of each of these women and their responses to a situation which feels hopeless to each of them.
I really felt for the connection Sheila had with her hidden pet Buttercup and every time she went out to feed her little friend I would in take in a breath hoping Glenn didn’t find out.
So did they go ahead with the hit? I’m not going to tell you that would be a spoiler. I would highly recommend you pick up a copy and find out.
