Lucy Crocker's life is falling apart. She is having trouble designing a follow-up to her best-selling video game, Maiden Quest (a game she developed with her husband, Ed, that saved his software company). As if designer's block wasn't enough, she discovers that her husband is dallying with Crocker Software's PR director (a hot young thing named Ingrid) AND she catches her twin sons surfing porn sites on the Internet. This perfect storm of events causes Lucy to question the choices she made over ...more

Instead of this being about a female game designer, like I'd hoped, it ended up being about a woman who had no interest in game design at all, did it in the first place entirely by accident, spends all her time wallowing in nostalgia and avoiding her responsibilities in the manner of a 10-year-old, and wishing that her computer loving sons would go outside more and love computers less.

Yeah, no.
I got this from the $1 bin at half priced books and wasn't expecting much when I started it. It was surprisingly good. It is about 2 people who get married and each end up as a person they don't like. They end up doing things without regard for others and little remorse. I expected it from the teenagers in the book but not the adults. In the end, life lessons are learned and they come full circle while having all grown in the process. The characters in this book made me think about how often all ...more

Moral: The grass is not as green on the other-side as you think. Who/what you have may be best.
Very good. A new to me author with a tale that captivated me from the beginning. I was a little disheartened that both partners infidelities were dismissed so lightly, and that the moral seemed to be that two wrongs DO somehow make a right, but other than that, I was impressed with the realism of the tale. Great character development, and very ingaging in its telling. I will certainly look for more of Preston works in the future.
I liked it well enough. Mostly I relate to the main character that my kids spend too much time online and I am weary of the computer obsession in my home. I wish I could banish them to camp and hide out in a lakeside cabin carrying on an illicit affair with my hot ex.
This was a good book, but funny to read about the "advanced technology" back in 2000. Very dated. A quick read with quirky characters and a good plot.
Cute. light read involving a woman game developer in business w/hubby and their nerdy 13yr old twin boys. Infidelity, canoing adventure, redemption for all!
just okay, rather improbable, not particularly well written, but it passed the time.
