really liked it
Read from June 21 to July 04, 2010 — I own a copy

** spoiler alert ** I finished reading 'Seven Year Switch' yesterday (4th of July) and found it refreshing. Jill's rediscovery of her long lost husband (and herself in the process) really touched a cord with me. Like Jill, people tend to nurse old wounds until forced out of their comfort zones. But by letting go, she expanded her small world and opened up relationships with those closest to her.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars, mostly because I had a hard time accepting how easily Jill welcomed her husband back into her life and home after he disappeared without a trace for 7 years, and then she even left him alone to care for her daughter while she vacationed in Costa Rica. I know it's just a work of fiction, but that was just a little difficult to accept. Despite that, I especially enjoyed the author's humor/wit and would love to take a trip with 'Great Girlfriend Getaways' some day... but with my hubs, too. ;)
