Roberts presents a predictable but fun beach read. Her characters are warm and engaging, and their interactions are full of humor. This book is perfect for a summer day with a margarita.
Kizzy, Angela, Megan and Erin come to the same conclusion for different reasons: The weight must go. So they transform their cooking club from a decadent binge- fest to an inspirational diet support group. Each woman's journey is filled with successes and backsliding but never lacks for the love and power of girls in small groups. (St. Martin's Griffin, Apr., 352 pp., $13.95
