Description

"Eloise is content with her solitary life as a successful private chef. She has her clients, her corgi, and a recipe for the world's most perfect chocolate cream pie. What more could she need? But when her favorite teacher dies and her long lost trio of high school friends reunites at the wake, Eloise is confronted by how lonely she really is. In honor of Mrs. O'Connor, Eloise, Lynne, and Teresa revamp their senior class assignment and dare each other to create a bucket list of things to accomplish by the time they each turn forty in May. Together, they choose new goals for each other. Control freak Lynne has to get a dog; Teresa has to spice up her marriage with pole dancing classes; and Eloise has to enter the dreaded world of dating. Enter Shawn, a hunky ex-athlete and the first man that Eloise could see herself falling for. Suddenly forty doesn't seem so lonely--until a chance encounter reveals that Shawn's ex is actually Lynne! Will the bucket listers make it to forty still as friends? Or do some friendships come with an expiration date?"--
