Roxie is sitting on the toilet when he tells her he wants a divorce. Stunned at first, she soon realizes her loveless marriage has killed her spirit and turned her into a bored trophy wife, isolated in a condo with an ironing board and an obsessive desire to impress people.
On a quest to find the carefree girl she used to be, she heads back to her hometown to start over. That's when she finds the letter from her best-friend, Hope, in her luggage:
I’m really proud of you for taking this leap of faith. And even though I’m going to miss you like crazy, I understand why you have to go. My only concern is that you are going to be building a new life without my wisdom and guidance, which I think we both agree is an influence you really shouldn’t be without. No offense, Rox, but you don’t have the best track record when it comes to making decisions on your own. I mean, you are the one who married that jackass to begin with.
That’s why I’m volunteering to act as your sponsor. I’ve come up with a way to keep you moving in the right direction. It’s called the Good Life List and it’s your new syllabus. Remember when I threw that bachelorette party for Lindsay and everyone had to complete tasks in order to win a free day at the spa? This is kind of like that (except I’m not handing out hits of ecstasy and there aren’t any bonus points for performing oral sex in public). You need to complete each challenge on this list by the end of the summer. You always say there are no dress rehearsals in life, but I disagree. Right now you have no one to impress – (except me ;), no one to answer to – (except me ;) and no one to please – (except me ;).
This is your in-between. This is your dress rehearsal. So go on now and make me proud, little one.
Love you! Muah XOXO
With the Good Life List in hand, and some help from a charismatic (and gorgeous) roommate, Roxie is only a few check marks away from reclaiming her life. She will forget about being a good wife, and start living a good LIFE - even if it means getting thrown out of a bar or skinny-dipping in her neighbor's pool at 3am.
The Good Life is a light, romantic comedy about second-chances. The prequel, All Good Things, is the story of her first chance - look for it on Amazon now.
