Synopses & Reviews
"What was I thinking? Sex for the very last time. That's what."
Five-O magazine lifestyle columnist Lu Nichols has led an ordinary life. Marriage. Career. Two kids. Now she's turning fifty, and the wear is showing. The kids are grown. The ink is dry on the divorce papers. Her boss wants to do an extreme makeover feature, starring Lu. And those bad oysters she ate have turned out to be something a little more permanent.
"I'm almost fifty years old, recently divorced. Now I'm about to be an unwed mother. And you thought you had issues."
Her soon-to-be-wed daughter is horrified. Her boss is thrilled; she can turn her delicate condition into a monthly expose. Her ex is AWOL. And the sexy, slightly younger doctor who delivered the news? Well, he hasn't run off screaming yet. And however it turns out, there's one thing Lu can be sure of — she's knocked up, but not out. And more than ready for a brand-new Lu . . .
Lu Nichols, a 49-year-old columnist, is thrust into more life changes than she cares to cope with. Along with the emotional confusion over her recent divorce, Lu is trapped in a whirlwind of frustration stemming from the guilt she shoulders for having "split up the family," and her two adult children won't let her forget it. Her daughter is charging full speed ahead along the wedding preparation path, and Lu finds herself curiously absentminded...not to mention exhausted. To top it all off, she has a young new boss who's determined to "revitalize" the magazine. Her plans include changing Lu's column and overhauling Lu herself with a new diet, hairstyle and even cosmetic surgery--all of which she'll chronicle in her column, renamed "A New Lu." And then, at 49, the frazzled Lu discovers she's pregnant by her just-divorced husband....
Forty-nine-year-old columnist Lu Nichols has a young new boss who's determined to "revitalize" the magazine by overhauling Lu herself with a new diet, hairstyle and even cosmetic surgery. And then, the frazzled Lu discovers she's pregnant by her just-divorced husband. Original.
Along with the emotional confusion over her recent divorce, Lu Nichols, a 49-year-old columnist, is trapped in a whirlwind of frustration stemming from the guilt she shoulders for having "split up the family." And that's only the beginning of her problems.
