Publisher's Summary

When Alice's wealthy (and much coveted) teenage crush, Joe, asks her to marry him, she is prepared to trade in her dream of a cottage filled with children, animals, and home-cooked meals for what he has in mind for her: stilettos, blond highlights, and a diet. She tells herself that she's happy to sacrifice for love, especially when every woman in London would like to be in her shoes. But when her cheating Prince Charming is forced to relocate to New York as a result of an indiscretion with a female colleague, Alice feels her life spinning out of control. But soon enough, she finds herself renovating a country house in Connecticut, and in the process rediscovering herself. Friends, fresh air, and her best friend's boyfriend offer her a glimpse of a life, and love, she always wanted. But can she break Joe's spell?

Loved it!

Great book! I love Jane Green. Does anyone know if there is a sequel? It alludes to one but I haven't found one yet. Anyway, great story although it does drive me CRAZY that Alice won't stand up for herself throughout much of the book. The narrator does a great job as well and makes it a pleasure to listen to.

Good read!

A little long at times, but definetly a good read. It's not to heavy, but it kept my attention through a very long drive. I would recommend it to many!
