Well written story about relationships, personalities, and families growing and evolving through a relatively short period of time. I enjoyed the witty dialogue and the author's presentation of main character self discovery. Some surprising twists and a satisfying ending made for an enjoyable read.

I loved this book. It is a classic tale of a mother who wants love for herself but is cautious of how a future with her new man may impact her two sons. It's a light, quick, easy, MUST read.

No serious plot, just a story of ordinary people and family life. A good read.

After her ex-husband dies in a plane crash, Martha Gaver is horrified to learn that the executor of Raymond's estate is Charlie, the conservative, insufferable lawyer who represented Raymond in their bitter divorce. Yet soon after they reenter each other's lives, Martha, Charlie, and their teenage children find they have more in common than they imagined as they struggle to rebuild their lives...and that opposites really do attract. Engaging, witty, and entertaining, Domestic Pleasures is a touching, piercing tale of love lost, found, and embraced once again.
