THE WHOLE PACKAGE
The Whole Package is a delightfully frivolous romp. An excellent beach read, this light but enjoyable fare will have you chuckling (and likely blushing!) throughout. The three main characters have believable relationships with ups and downs, adding a touch of reality to what would otherwise be a purely silly story. Do be prepared, however, for a few eye-rollingly cheesy moments, especially toward the end.
Lifelong friends Jackie, Cheryl and Doris have all taken wildly different paths after high school, yet now they’re simultaneously all going through a major down period in their lives. But after a wild night at a strip club, the three come up with an idea to turn everything around — open a Hooters-style restaurant for women … with mixed results, of course.
