"Getting to Mr. Right" by Carol Balawyder is a great contemporary novel. You might call it women's fiction, although you may not want to do so after reading one of the plotlines about literature in the book. It read initially like entertaining and witty chick lit when it began with the slow breakdown of a sexless marriage. Soon however the characters showed much more depth and scope to limit the book to the theme of just finding a Mr. Right for its characters.
The characters all have their baggag
