This week I'm sharing...


Emmy Everett, who has been living in Rhode Island and working at a tackle shop since leaving her fiance three years earlier, reluctantly returns to Scarsdale, New York, for the wedding of her older brother, Josh, to his longtime girlfriend, Meryl. Emmy is shocked when Josh tells her he's been seeing another woman, Elizabeth, on the side. Elizabeth, a thirtysomething single mother with a teenage daughter, is nothing like the polished, sophisticated Meryl, but when Emmy meets her and her daughter, Grace, she realizes nothing is as clear-cut as it seems. Josh's struggle over what he wants gives Emmy insight into her own inertia and her failed relationship with Matt, whom Emmy finds she is not quite over.

I really enjoyed this book.  It was written from Emmy's point of view, and sometimes her thoughts rambled, but heck, mine do too.  I thought the storyline was very intriguing, albeit slightly predictable.  It was a great quick read and entertaining.

Also, Michelle reviewed another Laura Davy book a few weeks back.  And she tweeted about it--and Laura Davy responded!  I thought that was so cool and it really made me like her even more.

What are you currently reading?

I swear, you're always reading books I've never even heard of! Where do you find them?!

Michelle said...

I'm glad you liked this book! I'm definitely a fan of this author and it was super sweet for her to tweet us considering I didn't even include in her in the tweet and she just stumbled upon it!
