Has anyone read her new one yet?  Just wanted to discuss thoughts with those who have already read it.

Not yet, but I am waiting ever so patiently for it to come up on my wishlist. Can't wait to read it!

I just picked it up at the library yesterday. Was it as good as her others?

I just finished it and I loved it. I think it was as good as her others. It only took me a day to read it.

Read it and LOVED it!!  I have to admit, with a guilty conscience that this book hit a little too close to home for me.  LOL but none the less, both she and I had a happy ending.  :)

I want to read this book so badly! I work at a library and it came in from amazon the other day, however, someone and book requested it, so it won't be back until the 30th! So not cool! I am very impatiently waiting it to come up on my wishlist. I adored Emily's other books, and I just ordered a book by her sister. Has anyone read any of Gemma's books?

I didn't know she had a sister who writes...what is her name?  I have really enjoyed all of Emily's books and just bought "Love the One You're With" yesterday with a gift card I got for my birthday!

I just finished it and loved it too! It was the first book I read by Emily Griffin. I right away ordered her other two books Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

I'm about 600+ on the wishlist for it. I'm not holding my breath!

I just had it come up on my WL (I put it on there the first day I joined PBS, Jan. 1 LOL) and it's on its way to me!  I can't wait to finally get it!  :)

I bit the bullet and snapped it up on another site I'm on. I must have hit at the right time because UNLIKE PBS, it's a free-for-all over there. Books are posted. Paying members (which I'm not) get an email that a WL book has been posted, but it's not reserved for them (there are no queues). I just so happened to look at what recent books were posted, and there it was. I "paid" three credits over there too. I'm still around 600 in line for it here. That other site is so "eh" and I really don't find much over there that I want anyway, so I didn't mind using the credits for it. I know it'll get snapped up again over there (or here, even for 1 credit). So, it's on the way!

I just finished Love the One You're With.  I must admit I felt like the ending was a little rushed, almost like she realized it was time to wrap it up. 

FYI, Gemma Townley is Sophie Kinsella's sister, not Emily Giffin's, as someone stated above.
