Loved the writing, and the characters. Didn't like the ending at all.

I always have a good time reading Sara Lewis's books. Are they going to change my life? No. But they're still fun. This one is about Eve, a widow with two kids who runs a Mailboxes Etc.-type store and whose sister marries a guy that Eve just isn't sure about. Mid-life romance, family drama, mystery... it's all there. She's written another one that I like called The Answer Is Yes.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I was light easy reading but there were many sad and serious notes hidden in all the lightness. I am a lover of music just as the sisters Mimi and Eve are in this book. I could identify with them so much and with their quirky little family. It was truly a pleasure to read this book.

Sara Lewis's novel THE ANSWER IS YES is one of my favorites. It not only is a fun story, it's outrageously optimistic and I read it whenever I'm feeling down. This novel was okay, but nothing compared to YES. This one has a similarly lost main character and the story resolves in a similar way, but without the charm.

Mostly I enjoyed it but I felt like some of the more boring day-to-day stuff the protagonist experienced could have been left out. Also I wasn't sure who I was meant to be rooting for out of Henry and the ex-husband.

I enjoyed most of it. But I had trouble connecting with the main character. Her choices and emotional reactions would twist so unexpectedly. I don't mind surprises. Here they just didn't feel real.

A cute easy to read book about two sisters and their relationship and the men in their lives. Predictable for the most part but a good Saturday afternoon read.

I liked it. Kind of a feel-good novel. Written in first first, the author is talented in communicating emotions and back-story.
