Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

A novel of compassion and insight, Good Luck With That tells the story of two women who learn to embrace themselves just the way they are.

My Thoughts...

 I never post reviews on my blog about books that I have bought. But I am making an exception for this book.
First book that I have ever read by Higgins, I just had to have something to read and picked it up at the grocery  store having no idea what I was getting into.
I sat down when I got home opened it up and read it until the very last page. I did NOT cook or clean that evening!
Friendship, loving your self just like you are. This book had a message ALL women need to read. Self image, loving yourself just as you are! Powerful, fun, fabulous, unforgettable read! 
I will tell you this is a five star book two times!
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I want to giveaway a copy to one of my faithful followers and I will also send you a $25 Amazon gift card to get another one of Higgins books!
