Four unhappy women of different generations bond at a holiday cocktail party and hatch a plan to create a year of happy endings by mimicking their favorite movies.

Georgia Hackett is certain her husband of thirty years will ask for a divorce after the holidays. Why else would she see him with the most vicious divorce lawyer in town? Well, if that's the case, she has one month to change his mind.

Ellie Taylor is an overwhelmed mother and perpetual screw-up who always had her best friend to lean on. But Kathleen hasn't been returning her calls and her pushy husband never understands just how hard her life really is.

It's bad enough for Paige Shamer to be heartbroken after her fiance's life coach advised him to dump her right before their wedding. But now her famous blogger boss wants her to write about it, just like she secretely writes everything else. 

Christine Woods made a promise to herself one year ago to learn how to live without her beloved late husband, Michael. That year has passed and she's more confused than ever thanks to an elderly widow who wants her to stay in black.

Together, they hatch a plan to get exactly what they want:

~Georgia wants answers.
~Ellie wants change.
~Paige wants love.
~Christine wants peace.

Throughout a year full of mishaps and mistakes, they each find their happy ending ... and it's nothing like they expected.

I was hoping for more! The characters are rich, and I can see the beginnings of an interwoven story between characters. I look forward to reading more as you continue. Very enjoyable! Thank

Love the beginning of this. The women are in such different stages. Except for the party, the wine, and a deep fear of being alone and longing for more. Can't wait to see these paths cross
