Here's a description:
For best friends, Olivia and Bethany, life looks a whole lot better on the other side of the picket fence.
Olivia had the big Italian wedding - a boisterous bash including her pizza shop owner parents, her superstitious Nonna, her three rowdy brothers, one quirky photographer's assistant and her high school sweetheart groom. Now, in her mid-thirties, Olivia lives in a cute suburban home with her husband and three children. Yet she longs for a life beyond the threshold of her front door …for an exciting, carefree life like Bethany’s.
Bethany, on the day of Olivia’s wedding, faced a heartbreaking ultimatum: her fiancé or her budding dream career as a travel writer. Though the scene she made at Olivia’s reception was regretfully dramatic, Bethany never looked back on her choice to ditch Mark. That is, until ten years later when news reaches Bethany of Mark’s upcoming nuptials. While sitting in her lonely Manhattan apartment, Bethany wishes for a husband and children to fill the void in her life …for a stable, domestic life like Olivia’s.
On a girls’ get-away to the Jersey Shore, tensions reach their breaking point as each woman realizes she desires what the other one takes for granted. Spurred forward by each other’s honest yet stinging comments, Bethany and Olivia set out to create the lives they wished they had. Roles become reversed, a marriage and a career hang in the balance and the amazing power of true friendship prevails.
A fun ride with relatable characters, humor and unexpected plot twists, Going Barefoot in Greener Grass is a warm story of friendship weaved into a satisfying tale about never giving up on your dreams.
You'll love it!
