Publisher's Summary

She'd made it sound as though her husband would be joining them for dinner. She'd made it sound that way on purpose, and then she arrived alone.
Los Angeles, 1934. Mary Frances is young, restlessly married, and returning from her first sojourn in France. She is hungry, and not just for food: She wants Tim, her husband Al's charming friend, who encourages her writing and seems to understand her better than anyone. After a night's transgression, it's only a matter of time before Mary Frances claims what she truly desires, plunging all three of them into a tangled triangle of affection that will have far-reaching effects on their families, their careers, and their lives.
Set in California, France, and the Swiss Alps, The Arrangement is a sparkling, sensual novel that explores the complexities of a marriage and the many different ways in which we love. Writing at the top of her game, Ashley Warlick gives us a completely mesmerizing story about a woman well ahead of her time who would go on to become the legendary food writer M. F. K. Fisher.

What did you love best about The Arrangement?

The gorgeous language. Warlick's prose evokes emotion with deftness.

What other book might you compare The Arrangement to and why?

The subtle and sensual writing of Virginia Woolf, like MRS. DALLOWAY and Michael Cunningham's THE HOURS.

What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

She let Warlick's words be the star.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I devoured this elegant story one bite at a time and so wanted more and more. I wish the story never ended.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for Warlick's next book!

I hated this book

I am sorry. This was the most self important book I ever had the misfortune to listen to. The narrator had a lovely voice but it became so monotonous that I wanted to scream. I listened because I wanted to know how it ended. I regret wasting the time.
