Guest Reviewed on Cocktails and Books by Larissa.

Wendy thought she was about to marry the love of her life. She had been dating the Perfect man Rodger for seven years and decided it was the right time to be wed. Things start out well on the honeymoon and Wendy thinks she is in for the perfect life and marriage. That is until a new position opens up in another state and her and Rodger make a move from LA to Houston. Upon arriving in Houston to a new job and a new house Wendy soon finds that things are not picture perfect. Her new career turns out to be less then she had hoped for. Rodger ends up working extra long hours and leaving Wendy alone. She soon starts to feel neglected, unloved, and just restless.

Wendy gets super excited when she receives a call from a friend in LA asking her to go to Vegas for a friends wedding and some good clean fun. However as soon as the plane lands the adventure begins.
Wendy finds herself stuck in a classic midlife crisis. Wondering if marrying Rodger was really the right thing to do. So Wendy decides to stay in Vegas for just a bit longer. It ends up landing her a job, an apartment, and a gentleman caller. However Wendy decides to invite Rodger. Rodger does not like the idea of Vegas so declines. However they have vowed to make their marriage work even over the distance.
Wendy finds herself stuck in a midlife crisis.

I personally found this book to be humerous and very true to life. I am not 45 but have had my own ups and down with marriage. I believe we have all had these thoughts and our own personal midlife crisis at any age. I have often dreamed about running away and starting fresh. This is exactly what Wendy has decided to do. You need to read the book to find out the stunning conclusion she came too.

I give the book 4 out of 5 cocktails
