There are some hilarious times ahead for them as well as some profoundly emotional ones Smokey s loss isn t all Tootsie has to deal with on this journey and the other women repay Tootsie s support with some of their own I loved Tootsie s conversations with Smokey They gave a good look at the type of man he was and the relationship he had with herCarmen I loved Carmen and ached so much for her

then later as a single mother She showed little interest in dating not ready to trust another man with her heart Having already been through it she is in an excellent position to help Carmen What Diana did not expect was to feel a connection to Tootsie s nephew Luke who is their driver on this road trip She is a bit freaked out about their age difference since he s a few years younger I loved the friendship that grew between them as they discovered things they had in common and how that friendship grew and changed There were some sweet moments between them and some very steamy ones Diana has some issues she has to deal with before she lets herself even consider a future with Luke in it I liked the fact that they kept the lines of communication open even when they were at oddsLuke The lone man on this road trip Luke is a self professed geek who claims limited social skills He spent most of his adult life immersed in the software company that he built Luke recently sold it and now must decide what he wants to do He loves his Aunt Tootsie and looks forward to the memories of his Uncle Smokey on this trip He is taken by surprise by his connection to Diana especially as he usually is shy and awkward around women I liked how the age difference meant so little to him and loved how he explained it to Diana I liked his patience as he didn t try to push Diana past where she was comfortable but still left her in no doubt about his interest Luke also helps each of the other women through some of their problems with some practical advice andor viewpoints from the male perspectiveI loved the journey these five made together with the love friendship and respect that helped each of them through some rough times I loved the end of the journey as they attended their daughters graduation and saw the changes that they too had experienced I enjoyed the glimpses of each motherdaughter relationship as well as the friendships between the three girls I got a kick out of Rebecca s comments to Luke There was also some insight into the three women s husband and how the men s relationships with each other compared to their wives relationshipsThe epilogue was great I liked seeing them all a few months down the road and how things have worked out for them I loved seeing Luke and Diana together and the unexpected twist that capped off the book Degrees of Elevation
