      Cindy had a good life…. even if her husband wandered now and then…. He always came back… until this time. He now wanted a divorce. Ann thought she had it all: good husband, no financial worries, nice home, good job – until her husband killed himself and she found her money gone, fired from her job, all gone and she was back living with her parents. Martha lived alone in a plain brown apartment. She was overweight, but he didn’t care… Eldon loved her…d had loved her since they were [...]

      It was enjoyable to have something light and funny at times to read. However, I'm not a fan of the ending as it felt rushed and insensitive a bit. Overall, it's good to relax and read.

    4. Terra on said:

      As Good As It Got by Isabel Sharpe is an emotionally physicalogical roller coaster ride through the hellish afterlife of three woman's loss of the men they love the most.Cindy is the perfect specimen of devoted wife and life long motherhood to the point of complete and total ignorant oblivion. Arriving home to find the house a mess she embarks on her normal clean it up attitude until she happens to find a thong in her bed that needless to say is not hers. Having overlooked her husbands straying [...]

      So depressing to read 2 BAD books in a row. Wow! what an incredibly poorly written book full of drivel about 4 loser women with no personalities whatsoever. A bunch of simpering women who all loooooove assholes and let themselves be hopelessly mistreated for 20 years before the jerks have the decency to die or leave How do these things get published?????Product review:Ann Redding has taken every lousy thing life has thrown at her and handled it very well, thank you very much. All she wants is to [...]

      I loved the idea of this book - a camp for grown women who were "suddenly single", a place to heal, recover and regroup no matter how you were "suddenly single". There are many good things about this book, in fact, it was a bit reminiscent of Good Grief. The anger, shock, resentment and denial of some of these women were very realistic. My hurt ached for them and I want so badly for them to succeed and be able to move on. However, there were too many loose ends for me to give it more than 3 star [...]

      (I am revisitingter chatting with a friend, I realize that I do see a bit of me in each of the characters--for better or worse! LOL--)Kinda funky book on four women, each with a "relationship story" who attend a women's camp in Maine to “find themselves.” I could make some connection. Over all, just a breezy read. And yes, they each found redemption.On page 95 there was a "reminder" for me"Not that many of us can throw off the negativity surrounding us.It's safer to be cynicalIt's easier to [...]

      I loved the idea of this book- a camp for grown women who are "suddenly single”, need a place to heal, and recover from their own personal stories. I loved how the author, Isabel Sharpe, was able to smoothly switch between the three main character’s perspectives within each chapter. Even though I am much younger and in much different situations than each of the three women, I loved reading about their individual stories and trying to relate to them all. I think that women, who believe to be [...]

      Receiving this early copy from Harper Collins, I was excited to be picked to read As Good As It Got.The story is about 3 women who are in the throws of grief, either by the loss of a spouse, the infidelity of a spouse, or having someone else's husband whom you've having an affair with on his death bed.Then along comes Betsy the woman who runs Camp Kinosonu in Maine. A camp whose theme song is yes, I am Woman and caters to helping women in move past the grief.I enjoyed it and thought it was a gre [...]

      Desperate for a book to read, I picked this up for 5$ at Walmart. They had a selection of 5$ books, some of which I'd already read, and the rest sounded terrible. This one sounded the least terrible of the ones I could find.Turns out, it was a pretty entertaining book. Literary masterpiece? No. But it was an interesting storyline, with a few interesting twists, and even laugh-out-loud funny in a spot or two - the character Ann cracked me up. All in all, a fun, quick, entertaining summer read.

    11. Shelley on said:

      A wonderful and bittersweet story of women finding out who they are and possibly where they belong after the loss of their significant other. The characters were great and so real!! There were some surprises along the way, which I didn't see coming. The setting of the coast of Maine really worked and made me want to go visit someday. I hope I never have to go through the pain that these characters had to go through but it's a great lesson about not losing your true self no matter who your are wi [...]

      I liked the concept of a camp for recently single woman getting together to move on. I liked Ann who was a little snarky and hard edged who kept the other women from being too overly down. What I didn't like though is some of the character development. One of the camp counselors was a little inappropriate though he gets what is coming to him. There wasn't enough resolution to each character line. Ann had a lot more development than the others and I like where it took her but it was not enough to [...]

    13. Denise on said:

      What makes a book great? I really enjoyed reading this story of three recently single women who go awayto a camp to learn to cope. One husband is very much alive and has another yet another affair; anotherone has committed suicide; a third has a married boyfriend of over 20 yrs who is in ICU. This book will neverwin a pulitzer, but the characters were relatable and real. The story was great though I might've hoped formore closure at the end. I guess that's real life. 3.8

    14. Andrea on said:

      This book was a guilty pleasure. The ultimate beach read. What made it more fun was sharing it with 2 other women who enjoyed it and then planning the cast of the movie. We roared at the characters and laughed at who we would pick to portray them. Lots of good memories tied into this book. Best part-the woman who served her husband the thong she found in bed (it wasn't hers) in his pea soup.

    15. Arnetta on said:

      This was a fun, and insightful book on single women. Women whose husband had died, left them, having affairs. It shows the journey they take individually and with the help of each other to come out stronger and smarter at the end. A great book on how to improve your life by improving your attitudes and by finding yourself. It was a quick read cause it flowed easily.

    16. Kim D on said:

      This was justd. A woman whose friends all but force her to attend a feel-good, hippy-dippy getaway camp for dumped or otherwise rejected women. Naturally, a potential fling with the (Is he / isn't he gay?) "counselor" and connection with hot fisherman appear in the plot, as does the usual self-actualizing/self-empowerment moment. Horrible, formulaic, and boring.

    17. Karen on said:

      At first I wasn't sure I was going to like these three women in the book, but it was a fun book even though it was about a serious topic, losing a male partner. But by the end I was cheering these women on.

    18. Sharon on said:

      Story about three women and three relationships gone bad. One widowed, one had multiple affairs and another lopsided. Camp seemed like a way to sort through their feelings with some hilarious results. Seems like this might make for a great script for a movie.

    19. Carol on said:

      This book was an easy read. It's about three women who have "lost" men and find themselves at a camp in Maine for women in the same situation. Three very different women who learn more about themselves in their two weeks at camp.

    20. Natasha on said:

      It's good. Different than most of the other books I read, but I like it. It's about women who go to a camp that helps them deal with the lose of certain men in their lives. They learn things about themselves and their relationships, and try to overcome their loss.

    21. Janice on said:

      three women who have loved and lost either by divorce or death. Going to a camp in Maine for women recovering from lost and how they all cope. Funny at times. The characters are so real that you want to hug and shake them all at the same time.

    22. Jessica on said:

      This wasn't a bad book at all to read. I think they should have camps like that for women that are having a tough time getting over those tough moments in life. I have passed the book on to someone who is trying to get over a relationship.

    23. Mikie on said:

      The premise was great, and the first few chapters caught my attention. After that, the bottom fell out. The characters became whiny, unbelievable and predictable. I couldn't skim this book fast enough to finish it. Great start, promising, than a belly flop.

    24. Michelle on said:

      I liked the thought of the retreat. It is an uplifting story, on healing, confusion, anger. Looking on in the inside for your own placement.

    25. Rose Blum on said:

      Silly book!!! It caught my eye because I had read one of her earlier books & it had a cute dog on the cover.

    26. RachelR on said:

      This book was really good. From the first page it just drew me in. I couldn't put it down. I want to read her other book. She'll be an author that I follow from now on.

    27. Angie on said:

      light summer reading with predictable endings for four women at crossroads in their middle years.

    28. Kathy on said:

      Great story! Loved the author's style. Very funny and pithy characters.
