Meet Faye, Marilyn, Alice, and Shirley. Four women with
skills, smarts, and secretsâ€“all feeling over the hill and
out of the race. But in a moment of delicious serendipity,
they meet and realize they share more than raging hormones
and lost dreams. Now as the Hot Flash Club, where the
topics of motherhood, sex, and men are discussed with
double servings of chocolate cake, they vow to help each
other . . . and themselves.
Faye, the artist. A determinedly cheerful widow and
connoisseur of control-top pantyhose, sheâ€™s struggling
with creative block and an empty, lonely house. Now sheâ€™s
got a tricky problem to bring to the clubâ€™s table: how can
they catch her perfect son-in-law cheating on her only
Shirley, the healer. Though her yoga-slender body belie

to marry the very wrong woman, she gets some helpfrom the
HFC, who transform her from a caterpillar to a butterfly,
with amazing results.
Alice, the executive. Black and regal, she soared to the
top of the corporate ladder. Now her shoes are murder on
her arthritic back and the younger jackals are circling in
for the kill. But as the inspiration behind the HFC, sheâ€™s
about to discover something extraordinary: contentment.
For Faye, Shirley, Marilyn, and Alice, the time has come
to use it or lose itâ€“be it their bodies, their brains,
their spirits, and their sense of fun. Together they
realize that they can have it all, perhaps for the first
time in their lives. And though what sags may never rise
again, feeling sexy has no expiration dateâ€“ and best of

always start over . . . and never, ever, give up what
