Hot Flash Club Strikes Again
Add to Wish List
The fabulous women from The Hot Flash Club are back in top
form, welcoming the stressed-out and pampering-deprived
through their discreet spa doors-as Nancy Thayer returns
with a witty, sexy, and heartwarming novel. The Hot Flash
Club Strikes Again also introduces four new women, ready
for massages and seaweed wraps, each struggling to
reconcile her secret dreams, biggest fears, and deepest
feelings as topsy-turvy events shake up her life.
After eighteen years of trying to make peace with her
husband's cold-as-ice mother, Polly vows to be the perfect
mother-in-law: loving, accepting, and determined to keep
her mouth shut. Then her son marries Amy, a Birkenstocked
gal whose organic farm and family ooze a rather creepy
serenity. Ever the optimist, Polly puts her best foot
forward . . . so why does it end up in her mouth?
A shy and brilliant professor-to-be, Beth has lived a
sheltered life. Then she meets Sonny, a rugged, sexy
carpenter who sweeps her off her feet. The problem? Beth
may not survive his loud, affectionate, athletic family-
especially when the very beautiful and earthy woman
everybody wanted Sonny to marry is still hanging around
the family dinner table.
Heiress to one of New England's oldest paper companies,
Carolyn is the driving force behind the brand. Now, at
thirty-seven, the workaholic executive is finally pregnant
with her first child, and high blood pressure is forcing
her to do something totally alien: relax. But how can she
let down her guard when her seventy-something father has
gone and eloped with a young bank clerk named Heather,
whose rather plain looks and unassuming nature still
manage to fill Carolyn with suspicion.
A free-spirited photographer, Julia has married a man she
loves, but he's come packed with baggage. Tim is a widower
with a young daughter, and Julia has bravely stepped up to
the plate, doing her best to provide maternal support. But
as if being pinned down by the child's slightly
manipulative ways and (dare Julia say it) spoiled behavior
wasn't enough, there's Tim's ex-mother-in-law, whose
meddling is getting nastier by the week.
For Polly, Beth, Carolyn, and Julia, the time has come to
stand up for what matters-for their passions, their
hearts, and themselves. As they maneuver through family
drama and embrace unexpected change, they come to find
that life is much easier (and a lot more fun) when you've
got friends, wine, and chocolate along for the ride.
