Roberts' story of women confronted
with the challenges of handling their own finances rings true, and her
characters are likable. Filled with
common-sense approaches to financial management, it just might give readers more than they think. While not the kind of novel that will end up on
a "Best of 2010" list, it's still a
pleasant diversion.

Rachel, Jessica and Tiffany have different lives and financial needs, but all three are in the same, difficult situation: They must get a handle on their spending! When their small book club changes into a self-help money group, the divorcee, the young married woman with the shopping addiction and the woman with her grown son living in her home join forces to solve, and avert, their financial disasters. (ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN, Apr., 352 pp., $13.99)
