“If you loved The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing, this book is right up your alley.”—Isabel Gillies, New York Times bestselling author of Happens Every Day

KIRKUS REVIEWS BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR!

The middle part of your story might just be the beginning…

After her husband loses his job, Lucy has to leave behind her posh life in London and settle into a tiny East Village apartment. Now she’s a middle-aged mother in the midst of hipsters, homesick and resentful until she embarks on a new love affair—with New York City and three new friends.
Julia has left her family for a mini breakdown and a room of her own. Trophy wife Christy is a bit adrift, as only those who live in penthouses can be. Robyn is constantly compensating for her wunderkind husband who can’t seem to make the transition to adulthood. And all of them are starting to learn that what you want in your twenties isn’t always what you need in your forties…

Includes a readers guide

...emotional ties common among a group of women...are simply not apparent. Each character appears directionless and distant from her “close” friends.No One Could Have Guessed the Weather proves largely disappointing.
