Publisher Comments:

Three women, two missions, one silver Jag . . . and a road trip to find the boys who started it all. They were three girlfriends whose love lives had seen better days, and they were driving to a reunion in New Orleans, the town they'd left behind. The trophy wife, the prom queen, and the trashy girl all had a vision: the men of their present didn't hold a candle to the boys in their past. Whatever happened to those old boyfriends?< P>Available only in Americana 5.


Three women on a mission to renew their love lives drive to a reunion in New Orleans where they hope to find the boyfriends from their past.

Jennifer Bateman, November 29, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Bateman)
In Southern California, everyone pays respect to the "great" man, but his widow Mary Jane "MJ" Hollander knows her bisexual spouse's final breath was on a round bed of a "pseudowoman". While his adult kids and their spouses salivate over the inheritance, MJ makes it through the platitudes and the sushi served by her stepson only because her two best friends Cat and Bitsey are truly there for her.

The three transplanted southern amigos get together to help MJ with her grief and discuss the men in their lives including the one that memory serves as being their ideal mate. Bitsey is married to her lord and master Jack Albertson who never appreciates her efforts because if he didn't do the chore then it is not perfect; however, he never does it with her nor helps with their Stepford kids. Cat has less patience with the lesser gender than her friends having two divorces on her belt. Sick of selfish perfection, avaricious stepchildren, and failing husbands, the trio agree to visit each one's hunk that got away to see if the memories match the realities or their dead, ex, and living husbands.

Though middle age female buddies star, OLD BOYFRIENDS is an amusing coming of age relationship drama. The three women learn about themselves during their often comic escapades as they realize how much their behavior as an individual and as a trio impact on the rapport with others. Though the fine story line lacks a specific center to hold the tale together due to the constant rotation of perspective, fans of a jocular tale with a moral "to thine own self be true" will hitch a ride in the Jag.
