Izzy and Maddy learn they have more in common than young children after tragedy strikes and they form a special bond of friendship. When Maddy discovers an old book of family beauty secrets , the two women embark on a path that neither could have imagined in their wildest dreams.
Annie Sanders is the pseudonym for two female writers. In the author's notes they claim to have wanted to write a different sort of chick-lit book. They have certainly accomplished that with this novel. GOODBYE, JIMMY CHOO explores many issues pertinent to today's women with a balance of humor and poignancy.
Izzy and Maddy are richly drawn characters who are engaging and empathetic. The reader will feel a sense of kinship with them by the book's end. They are strong, intelligent women, but their issues make them all the more endearing. The secondary characters are multi-layered as well.
GOODBYE, JIMMY CHOO is a book you will want to savor over several sittings. I look forward to future novels by this dynamic duo.
