In a wealthy New York suburb, forty-one-year-old divorced mom Sara Turner is juggling a new fiance, a new TV career, and a Newcomer's Club that throws sex-toy parties. Her dearest friend, Kate Steele, a hotshot Park Avenue skin doctor, is being romanced by a real estate mogul who happens to be married. And Sara's new neighbor, Berni Davis, has just quit her high-powered career to have twins, trading in the fast track for the cul-de-sac. At a time in life when women expect to find doors closing, Sara, Kate, and Berni find new options and unexpected twists: a baby shower starring a male stripper, a long-gone husband's surprise return, a seductive ex-wife's sudden advances, and a hunky soap star waiting in the wings. In a world where women spend their forties trying to look thirty, these savvy friends help one another keep their priorities straight. Most of the time.
