Both 55 and widowed, Louise Jernigan and Patsy Leslie have been best friends for 45 years. Their son and daughter married and are about to complete their happiness by making them grandmothers. But both are in a rut. Patsy doesn't like being without a man, and even Louise is starting to feel lonely. When a mysterious man comes to town, each is tempted, but all is not what it seems. The fallout is ridiculous to outsiders but serious to the two of them, and the complications might destroy their friendship. Told with a strong, humorous voice and characters who are all too human in their jealousy, Confessions of a Not-So-Dead Libido (4.5), by Peggy Webb, has unusual twists and terrific laughs.
