Publisher's Summary

For Gwen Merchant, love has always been doled out in little packets - from her father, who buried himself in work after her mother's death, and from her husband, Peter, who's always been respectable and safe. But then an old college boyfriend, the irrepressible Elliot Hull, invites himself back into Gwen's life with a surprising proposition.Elliot, it turns out, is in need of a pretend wife, just for the weekend, in order to fulfill his dying mother's last wish. But as Gwen finds herself drawn into Elliot's quirky, wonderful family - and uncovers a few secrets about her own - she begins to question everything she has believed about love.

this book is nonsense. don't bother

Lacks an actual story--just an annoying woman who basically lives in her head and makes me want to stab a fork in my eye to end the misery. I'm 3 hours in and just can't finish. I'm giving up. I want a refund.

Yawn

This book sounded good but it just goes on and on and on. I'm going to stick it out; but, I'm afraid it will never end.
