Lenny left his wife Monique a healthy legacy and a "bucket list"of things they'd dreamed of experiencing together before cancer took his life. For four years his widow ignored it, too busy raising their daughter to consider the painful task of resurrecting shattered fantasies. But when Monique notices her earth-mother neighbor Judy acting crazy in her empty nest, and their best friend, Becky, slipping into depression after a tragic medical diagnosis, Monique dusts off that wish list and contemplates it with new eyes. Lenny never meant for her to do this alone-and this crazy list of adventures just might save them all.
