A feel-great, choke-on-your-coffee, cringe-worthy, awkwardly hilarious romp from page one, this adult romantic comedy makes me grateful I’m married. Torn between competition and yearning, Mia and Nathan’s relationship resembles the act of spinning plates on poles–creating awe and a heavy dose of impending disaster until the very last moment. The self-deprecating inner monologues of Mia and Nathan reveal the true depths of their conflicted, complex, want-but-can’t-have yearnings. There are no minor characters in this story because the friends, family and co-workers of Mia and Nathan’s world each sparkle and delight as unique. Wonderful!

Cheers to authors Lorin Oberweger and Veronica Rossi for combining your formidable talents to develop such a memorably marvelous story. I haven’t laughed that hard in too long. This is a good-for-the-heart read. This reader gets the impression that this must have been fun to write because it was so much fun to read. Thank you. Thank you. You owe me a night’s sleep. The book stuck in my hand.

Rollicking funny dialogue and situations ensue after Grace, the middle sister of three, makes up a perfect boyfriend rather than endure pity from her family. Romantic comedy at its best! More than a fun beach read, because the family relationships resonate with humanity and truth. The family participates in Civil War Re-enactments, which thrill Grace, who teaches history at a prep-school. Grace’s mother is an artist who makes shocking glass works. Author Higgins makes readers laugh and cry at the same time.
