Publisher's Summary

Libby Miller has always been an unwavering optimist - but when her husband drops a bomb on their marriage the same day a doctor delivers devastating news, she realizes her rose-colored glasses have actually been blinding her.
With nothing left to lose, she abandons her life in Chicago for the clear waters and bright beaches of the Caribbean for what might be her last hurrah. Despite her new sunny locale, her plans go awry when she finds that she can't quite outrun the past or bring herself to face an unknowable future. Every day of tropical bliss may be an invitation to disaster, but with her twin brother on her trail and a new relationship on the horizon, Libby is determined to forget about fate. Will she risk it all to live - and love - a little longer?
From critically acclaimed author Camille Pagán comes a hilarious and hopeful story about a woman choosing between a "perfect" life and actually living.

Good, but

What did you love best about Life and Other Near-Death Experiences?

The reader was wonderful. The story had a great frame, but the journey of it was too simplistic and easy. A very neat and tidy read though. I enjoyed it.

Kindle is right!
I could not stop listening. How do you make someone volunteer to expose themself to the sadness of divorce & grave illness? Ask Camille. Better yet; download and read/or listen. Nothings implausibly sugarcoated. The story works because it sounds like something you might do-or want to do or watch your friend do in such a situation, fork spearing and all.
Amy's narrative gave each character depth and identity for me. She has a pleasant voice. I look forward to listening to more of her work.
