    Former college roommates, now thirtysomethings, struggle with romantic foibles. Kelly, a tough redhead, is torn between a nice programmer at work and a man who is decidedly wrong for her. It doesn't help that the wrong guy is Wendy's brother, and Wendy is too distracted planning her country-club wedding to the perfect Parker to notice. Marta checks off the next step in her plan when she makes junior partner, but then she finds out her boyfriend is married. And Dhara is blowing all of their minds by agreeing to an arranged marriage. Through interventions over cosmopolitans and flashbacks to one fateful weekend at Vassar, each woman reaches her own happily complicated ending. Characters that could have been stock (the rich girl, the Trekkie programmer) have a depth that is strengthened by relationships with family, boyfriends, the past, and, most important, friends. Higgins' (The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship, 2010) novel may beg comparison to Mary McCarthy's The Group but find a better reception by fans of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin.
