Last Chance Saloon follows the lives of four 30-something friends through the "great truths of love, life and friendship." Childhood friends Tara, Katharine and Fintan have been through the ins and outs of relationships together throughout their teens and twenties; now, in their thirties, only Fintan has what could be called a "meaningful relationship."

They struggle together through erratic diets, wretched boyfriends and burgeoning love lives; turbulent affairs, tardiness and bigotry, until a tragedy occurs that will change their lives forever.

Keyes' novel finds the balance between being a sexy read without using explicit sex. She has a terrific, witty voice that does a great job of drawing the reader into the lives of the characters. Despite a rather long period of exposition, LAST CHANCE SALOON is a great book for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended for readers who believe in living each day for itself and those for whom friendship is a key component of a life well lived. (May, 544 pp., $7.99)
