Where can a 40-ish woman turn when her marriage has gone stale and her kids treat her like an unpaid chauffeur? In Beth Riordan's case, it's to cyberspace. She takes a zany romp with love through wry, revelatory e-mails to Thomas, her handsome neighbor in a New England suburb, a travel writer in the middle of a divorce.
This was quick read, and an enjoyable one. But, I must admit that I found the main character's behavior to be startlingly codependent and almost a bit on the "I'm gonna boil your daughter's rabbit" Attraction side. Everything ends up the way you think it should be, except that this woman needs some serious therapy, stat.
quick read but I wanted more of the story
This was a quick read. I really enjoy Claire Cook's writing. The format was interesting as it was all emails. But it was a cute story.
A delightful, humorous, yet poignant tale told through emails. Captured me at page one and held on tight!
This book was ok. I would have liked to read the emails from the other person.
