Typical Chick-Lit.

Everyone is divorced, having an affair or going through some earth shattering problem. They all meet in Nantucket at the Windermere house. They become family and live happily ever after.

Not the best of Green's books but it was a fun fluff read. I loved that she wrote a book completely on US Soil and still used British words to describe things. It helped remind me why I love British Writers so much. I mean honestly doesn't having a row sound so much better than having a fight?

The characters were easy to relate too and all the different story angles were all written in enough details to make you really soak up the story. The book did seem rushed about halfway through like Green was going to miss her deadline but all in all a good light read.
