Read in February, 2010
It will be difficult to give a review without spoiling the ending, but here goes.
There were a lot of things I liked about this book. It was well written. I also found the author had a lot of very insightful observations of relationships/love/perceptions of others. My favorite being: Marriage is a conversation that lasts a lifetime. (I read an article written by Bridget Asher in Real Simple that said this very quote and liked it so much I checked out this book.)
What I didn't like: Why do characters always seem to "find themselves" or determine what they really want in life after they are married? The pretend wife aspect felt forced and not something that would ever happen in real life. I nearly stopped reading because the premise felt false.
