In The After Wife, Gigi Levangie Grazer has done what I would have thought impossible and made Hannah's journey after becoming a widow light-hearted and funny. And it's not in a zany, slapstick way, which I would not have liked. This book has smart humor and a Sex and the City type vibe. I loved the characters in her "Grief Team", especially Jay - he was hilarious.

I don't want to give too much away but I will say that after her husband is killed, Hannah discovers she has a unique talent. This talent made the book take an entirely different direction than I thought it would but I think it was what helped keep the story from becoming dark and depressing. This was definitely not your typical chick-lit novel.
I think The After Wife is well-written, funny and would be a great summer read.
