Goodreads:  Best friends and fellow midwesterners Katie, Annie, Maxine, and Claudia are no strangers to dealing with love and relationships, but with online dating and social networking now in the mix, they all have the feeling they’re not in Kansas anymore. Katie, a divorced mother of two, secretly seeks companionship through the Internet only to discover that the rules of the dating game have drastically changed. Annie, a high-powered East Coast transplant, longs for a baby, yet her online search for a sperm donor is not as easy—or anonymous—as she anticipates. Maxine, a successful artist with a seemingly perfect husband, turns to celebrity gossip sites to distract herself from her less-than-ideal marriage. And Claudia, tired of her husband’s obsession with Facebook, finds herself irresistibly drawn to a handsome co-worker. As these women navigate the new highs and lows of the digital age, they each find that their wrong turns lead surprisingly to the right click and, ultimately, the connection they were seeking.

Kritters Thoughts:  Four separate characters and their stories that come together to make a great book.  Formatted where each chapter is centered around one of the four ladies, but each of the other characters make appearances in creative ways.

Each of the four characters is in a different place in life from newly divorced to eternally single and they are each trying to figure out what kind of future they each want out of life.  With four characters and their families, I did have to make a post it note to keep the girls and their spouses and children all straight.  The reader falls in love with each character as these women grow throughout the book.  I became invested and wanted to make sure each character ended up in a happy place, whatever that was for each of them.

As a newly engaged woman, this book was hard to read at times due to the marriages that were taking hard hits and falling apart.  It made me definitely think and confirm that this marriage thing is a serious lifetime commitment which shouldn't be taken lightly.  A book that will make you think and even make you realize how good things may be in your own life.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
