A Happily Ever After fairy tail. A good "in between book". Sometimes I need a quick, mindless, fun book in between the heavier and complicated ones. Then Came You is perfect for that. It had enough characters and story lines to keep it interesting. You know what you're getting when you choose a Jennifer Weiner book. Nice, predictable, chick lit.
The performance helped keep the story lines separate.

One of my all-time favorite books is Jennifer Weiner's "Good in Bed." She is almost always perfect in reaching into the zeitgeist of the contemporary woman and extracitng not only the dialogue, but the heart of a moment in time. Her characters are at once warm and flawed -- and nearly always represent women we all know -- or are ourselves. This book is her at her best and will join for me with Good in Bed, Certain Girls, and Little Earthquakes. You are compelled by each of the women in this book -- Jules, Annie and India. Each give you reason to cheer for them and recognize their humanity and the struggles all women face to find identiy, meaning and purpose in their lives -- and the way we struggle with issues of identiy that are both internal and thrust upon us by the judgements of others.
The narrators do a great job of brining the story to life. You will not regret the hours speant listening and will find things to talk about with your best girlfriends the next time you get together.
