Can Elinor and Ted's marriage be saved? The answer is alarmingly fresh and unexpected as New York Times best-selling author Lolly Winston introduces us to characters as memorable as those of Anne Tyler and Nick Hornby, but who are indelibly all her own.
"Good grief! What a follow-up to Winston's best-selling debut." (Library Journal)
"Sometimes bawdy, sometimes moving, always hilarious...a charming, generous book." (BookPage)
"Winston has a real feel for the push and pull of a marriage in crisis, and delivers it in a brisk, funny, no-nonsense style that still comes off as respectful of the material." (Publishers Weekly)
"Once again, Winston demonstrates a laserlike ability to focus on the inescapable reality of contemporary relationships, tempering her characters' abject pain with appealing good humor." (Booklist)

I really loved it
How I found out about this book was that I read the Julia Robert's production company bought the rights to this and was going to make a film of it starting Julia, so I was intrigued.
I am now very anxious to see the how they adapt this wonderful story to the large screen.
I can see why. All of the characters were very likable and very easy to relate to and you weren't quite sure how it was going to end.
I recommend this book.

This was a good listen and I recommend it. The story moves along at just the right pace and I found myself surpised at the emotions that were described from the male point of view! As the story was narrated, I was able to immerse myself into the feelings of all the characters. My only complaint was that I wasn't thrilled with the ending; I felt it was too abrupt. I wanted to share in the emotions of Gina and Tony as the story ended, but it was left to my imagination!
