Praise for What Women Want
"At its core, What Women Want is a novel of female friendships, changed expectations, and shifting priorities. Debuting novelist Blake draws Ellen, Bea, and Kate as equally sympathetic heroines, each with her own strengths and weaknesses. ... Readers who enjoy the works of Erica Bauermeister and Liane Moriarty will relate to this witty and realistic portrayal of modern female friendship."
“What Women Want is like having a long, funny, and fascinating conversation with your very best friends and becoming deeply involved in their lives, families, and love affairs.”
