Alice and Nanny have
never met before, but they have one thing in common: their late friend Roberta.
Alice is the prim proprietor of a chic Madison
Avenue shop, while Nanny is a sharp-eyed Manhattan
real-estate broker. This New York
odd couple is thrown together when Roberta trusts them with her last
request—that together they open her safe-deposit box. What they find inside
compels these women to address a surprising truth about their beloved Roberta.

is exceptionally lyrical and lovely to read, the book contains much too much
sex and sex talk for my taste. 2 Stars (Rated R – too
