Best-selling author Lily Wright, one of Jojo's clients, worries about the novel she can't seem to write. Anton, the Love of Her Life, persuaded her to buy their dream house with the advance.
Gemma Hogan was best friends with Lily, until the willowy blonde stole Anton, a.k.a. the Love of Her Life. Juggling the demands of her mom, Gemma's social life is flatlining, a mortifying situation that makes for hilarious e-mails to a friend. Tales so funny, they come to the attention of top literary agent Jojo Harvey. Who takes Gemma on as a client....
Written in the charming and chatty voice that has become Marian Keyes's signature style, this hilarious and heartwarming new novel proves there are three sides to every story, even in the world of publishing!
"Terry Donnelly deserves much praise for her delivery....Donnelly allows no lapses of interest as the listener follows the varying story lines. She is a good reader." (AudioFile)
"The insightful Keyes has the ability to examine life, love, and work issues with great wit and aplomb. Sex and the City junkies will find a suitable replacement here, one with considerably more warmth and without the ugly clothes." (Booklist)

Listen a Little Longer..
I downloaded this book along with several others and when I finally started listening, I had forgotten the plot. The narration is at first hard to listen to, but as the book was 20 hours long, I felt as if I should stick with it for a bit. I'm glad I did. Once you get used to the narration, the book is actually quite a fun listen. While certainly not a "masterpiece", I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it for a light, fun read.

The description is better written than this novel.. .I was very dismayed to find it a very silly story of a daughter and a mother both terminally devastated because they'd lost their men. I was attracted to the novel because the central character sounded like someone with a career and a novel to write. That was absolutely secondary and the novel became little more than a saga of women set adrift until they found new men. . .haven't we gotten beyond that in this day and age?
