One Good Thing by Wendy Wax

Genre: Adult, Realistic Fiction
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

This is the fifth book in a series. Unfortunately,, I had not read the first four. If I had I might have enjoyed the book even more. Still, after a while, I was able to catch up with the story line. Four friends are doing their best to salvage their business called “Do Over”. It is tied up in a legal battle. In addition to their issues with the business, they each have their own personal issues. Nikki is pregnant and has trouble trusting anyone. Maddie is dating a rock star who’s career is beginning to take off again. He wants her to go on the road with her. However, she committed to working with her friends. Avery’s relationship is a difficult one. She is dating a man who has two sons. She is trying to help him with them, yet he reacts in a manner that goes against everything she is trying to help him accomplish. The father of Kyra’s son is married.  He is also very famous and she is in love with him.  They are on the verge of losing everything when something else is added to their plate. A wealthy lady who sponsored their last project had come making demands of them. Her husband took her money and ran off with another woman.

Through all of this, the one thing that impressed me was that the women met each day to talk about one good thing that happened to them. When I am having a really tough day I often rehash everything that had gone wrong. How different would our lives be if we only focused on one thing that really went right?  This story intrigued me enough that I have put the others that came before it on my TBR list. If you enjoy reading books that have multiple story lines that all tie together then I believe you would enjoy this.
