I Almost Forgot About You
Meet Georgia Young, a 50-something optometrist whose comfortable life is upended by news of her first boyfriend's death in a car accident.

Lucky for her, two of her college friends and her daughters are always there to catch her if she falls. McMilllan paints relationships in joyous primary colors; her novel brims with sexy repartee, caustic humor, and a fluent, assured prose that shines a bright light on her memorable characters. Her very best since Waiting to Exhale.
