The synopsis reads…
You can't choose your family – but you can choose your friends…A sensational new novel about female friendship. Eve has never imagined herself as a stepmother. But when she falls in love with Ian, he comes with a ready-made family of three children. And, to make matters worse, he's a widower. The ghost of his glamorous and well known wife haunts them. Clare, a teacher and single mother, is Eve's best friend. She is the only person Eve can talk to about how to win round three hostile children. But despite Clare's years of practice with her own teenage daughter, it's her younger sister Chloe who provides the truly sympathetic ear. Mel is the high achiever, sent along to Eve's so-called 'support group' by a colleague. Her new boyfriend has a ten-year-old daughter and she knows that if the relationship is going anywhere, she is going to have to meet her. And Mandy is the stay-at-home mum, whose relationship comes with stepchildren, and who wants more than anything to stitch together a new family life for herself and her kids. As a cup of coffee turns to a bottle of wine and the get-togethers become a regular fixture, the women share their love lives, their ambitions – and their feelings about their new families. But their friendship is tested when they are forced to confront new futures as well as unwelcome figures from the past!

Hmmm. I've not read any chick lit exploring the relationship of the stepmother, so i'm quite looking forward to this one!
