The BOOB Girls Review

Product Description: There's a naked man in the laundry room at Meadow Lakes Retirement Community. He's wearing only a brown vest, a stetson hat and cowboy boots. But that's about the extent of excitement in the big complex and that's why four diverse widows take off in secret for parts unknown, leaving no forwarding address. Between adopting the boys at the Ragged Ass Saloon, finding a dead body in the woods and capturing the killer, closing down a sleazy porno shop and meeting two handsome sheriffs, the burned out old broads who dine together at Meadow Lakes table 12 find adventure, romance, mystery and prove there is life after grief. Grab your latest AARP advertisement for a bookmark and join Maggie Pattern (sand hills rancher), Robbie Leary (retired English professor), Hadley Joy Morris-Whitfield (wealthy and wise), Mary Rose McGill (sweet Catholic girl) and Edith Ann (rescued Schnauzer) for a laugh-out-loud fun read and a look into relationships every mature woman wants and deserves.

The BOOB Girls (The Burned Out Old Broads at Table 12) by Joy Johnson is a delight! I really really enjoyed reading this book. I finished it in two nights. The story starts of with a bang, and continues to roll right along. I love all four of the main characters: Maggie, Mary Rose, Hadley, and Robbie. They are all someone you could know. In fact, they are all someone I know, and there is a little bit of each of them in me. If I had to pick a favorite, I would say it was Hadley. She is a firecracker and makes me laugh. I love all the characters in the entire book to be exact. Joy Johnson really knows how to create a persona. Just a very lovely read, and I highly recommend it!
