Publisher's Summary

Chicago cartoonist Sarah Moon tackles life's real issues with a healthy dose of sharp wit in her syndicated comic strip Just Breathe. As Sarah's cartoon alter ego, Shirl, undergoes artificial insemination, her situation begins to mirror Sarah's own difficult attempts to conceive. However, Sarah's dreams of the future did not include her husband's infidelity: snag number two in Sarah's so-called perfect life.With Chicago - and her marriage - in the rearview mirror, she flees to the small Northern California coastal town where she grew up, a place she couldn't wait to leave. Now she finds herself revisiting the past - an emotionally distant father and the unanswered questions left by her mother's death. As she comes to terms with her lost marriage, Sarah encounters a man she never expected to meet again: Will Bonner, the high-school heartthrob she'd skewered mercilessly in her old comics. Now a local firefighter, he's been through some changes himself. But just as her heart is about to reawaken, Sarah discovers she is pregnant - with her ex's twins.It's hardly the most traditional of new beginnings, but who says life and love are predictable...or perfect? The winds of change have led Sarah here. Now all she can do is just close her eyes...and breathe.

Great!
Looking for a good story with a few laughs along with some real life? This one is it. Terrifically narrated, offering different voices for characters this is a wonderful listen.
Not anything like my own life or probably yours there is much of everyday relationships and living in this book put together with love, friendship, and humor.

Predictable

The premise for the story was cute, the cartoonist part, but the rest could have been summed up in about 3 chapters.
I try not to criticize the readers, but this one made the men sound so much like robots I kept waiting for one of them to say "danger Will Robinson"! It was a bit of a distraction.
If you want a very, very light read, this is for you.
