Ellen | 2318 comments Rachel Samstat, 7 months pregnant with her second child, discovers that her husband Mark is cheating on her. When Rachel confronts him, Mark admits that he is in love with his paramour and is planning on moving on with his life .... without Rachel. Rachel wants to win back Mark's love, and she would also like to see him die a painful death. Her story is interspersed with recipes from her best-selling cookbooks, recipes that once graced her happy table as she and Mark dined together. Now, she would enjoy throwing the food in his smug face. Rachel is at a crossroads and must decide if her life is better with Mark or without him.

This was quite good on audio read by Meryl Streep. I enjoyed Rachel's funny comments and sarcastic comebacks. Well done.
