Has anyone read her new one The Importance of Being Married?

Interesting premise but difficult in spots to comprehend...she is trying to write like her sister.

I agree with you, it was an interesting premise, but I thought the book was so boring and hard to read.  in fact, it didn't pass my "100 page rule" and I ended up stopping around page 100 and then read the last chapter to see what happened.  As expected, it was totally predictable

I've just not heard anything good about her books.  I had one, and gave it away in a game here.
