Schedules, bills, errands, the dying water heater in the basement--sometimes running away from it all is a huge temptation. In a wise, wonderful novel that's as sweet, tart, and refreshing as a tall glass of lemonade on a hot day, you'll meet a couple of dear friends who actually take the plunge. Luckily, they've got the best safety net two women could have--each other. Every day in her busy Wisconsin beauty salon, Eve's clients trust her with their hair and their hearts. Unattached and not unhappy about it, she chugs along through life, fueled by coffee, gossip, and the daily round of split-end crises and dye disasters--until long-time client Ruby proposes something completely wild.

The difference is, bare feet, good food--not to mention the time to make it--and the serene beauty of the lake in their front yard make facing each new challenge a lot more fun.
