First of all I had high expectations for this book because I loved her other three! It took me a long time to get into the book and it seemed to just drag on. I did not enjoy it as much as I expected I would!

What a disappointment. "Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" were both funny and smart and enjoyable. "Love the One You're With" was slow and depressing. Maybe it was the switch from a British setting to an American one, but the magic is gone.

This book was frustrating because although the dilemma faced by Ellen is believable and one that many women could likely relate to (she must decide between a sometimes selfish but loving husband and an old flame who resurfaces during the first year of her new marriage), the unlikable characters make the book less enjoyable. Although the author's first person narrative does a good job of conveying Ellen's conflicting feelings about her life and desires, neither of the two men seemed worth the trouble!

Interestingly, what I considered the most believable scenes came at the end (which I won't ruin for you.) I just wish the beginning 3/4 of the book was as enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this book. I can see how some readers would think she's whiny or ungrateful, but I really found myself relating to her feelings. I thought the story played out nicely. Probably the best Giffin book I've read.

I enjoyed this book, although it wasn't as lighthearted or fun as her previous books, I thought. Although some of the characters seemed two-dimensional, the story and main character's dilemma were very realistic. And I loved the ending. I hope Emily Giffin's fifth book comes out soon.
