I have always enjoyed Jennifer Cruisie's books with the exception of the ones written with Bob Mayer.
I was really looking forward to this new one. It's terrible and I couldn't finish it. I listened to the sample, but couldn't really tell how bad it is from that. It's depressing and none of the characters are worth knowing. I didn't even make it halfway as another reviewer did. I like Joyce Bean too but her reading of this book just makes the character even more whiny and self-absorbed.
I wish Audible would let let me exchange this book for another one of equal value. Amazon has no problem with exchanges. They should add this feature to Audible. It's not like I'm not going to buy more audible books.

Before you read my review, know that I like Jennifer Crusie. She writes super fun books and I have liked most of the books that she has written (of course some more than others). That being said also know that I didn't finish the novel- I couldn't. Maybe someday I will because I own it, but I was not expecting the book that I got. According to the summary, I expected lighthearted, funny, etc. Not so. I didn't laugh once. Nothing that happened was funny to me-- and I got about half way into the book. Cheating on a spouse isn't funny-- especially when a child is involved. Hitting or beating a spouse isn't funny. And I think I was supposed to be glad that the heroine of the story had a "man friend" to comfort her, but I really wasn't. I didn't like the characters. I was so disappointed with the story, that I had to stop reading the book. That is why I gave it a low rating. The reader was great, though. And I will still look forward to Crusie's books. And since this book, I have read some of hers that have hard topics, that she faces well, I just wish I hadn't purchased or read any part of this one.
