Forever Friends by Sarah Mackenize

Perfect for fans of Susan Mallery and Jill Shalvis, two mothers -- one pregnant, one sending her child to college -- form an unlikely friendship, finding love, hope, and a new start at life in this charming, laugh-out-loud read. 

Single mom Renee Rhodes seems like a woman who has it all together -- perfect house, perfect kid, perfect yard. But now that her daughter is away at college, she doesn't know what to do next. Without weekly PTA meetings and after-school chauffeur duty, Renee isn't sure who she is anymore. What she is sure of is that she probably shouldn't be crushing on her new boss, who couldn't possibly be interested in a middle-aged mom....
Sadie Landry is drowning in the stay-at-home mom life. With a toddler running wild, a husband who is growing more distant by the day, and a mother-in-law who has a comment on every-little-thing, Sadie is one mommy-and-me class away from losing it. When she learns that she is pregnant again, Sadie knows that something has to change for the sake of her family -- and her sanity. 
After a birthday party bake-a-thon nearly turns into a three-alarm fire, Renee comes to her neighbor Sadie's rescue with comfort, competence, and a killer pie recipe. With their unlikely friendship and a newly hatched plan to open a bakery, 
 can Sadie and Renee finally have the lives they've always dreamed of?

4.5 Stars

Forever Friends is a fabulous read about friendship, family, and finding love again. Single mom Renee doesn't know what to do with herself, since her daughter left for college and started to live her own life. She's always been the caretaker and now she's left in an empty home and has been secretly crushing on her boss - single doctor in town. 

Sadie is a young mom, who put her career on hold to help raise their toddler, while her husband has been traveling and away from home for work. Between being a new mom, dealing with her mother-in-law and trying to figure out where her relationship stands with her husband, Sadie needs a break and a friend to talk to. 

Being next door neighbors, Renee and Sadie always been cordially and didn't really know each other. Not until they both realize that they have something in common and it turns into a great friendship.
