The third novel from the acclaimed author of Eight Hundred Grapes and the forthcoming Hello Sunshine
"A fresh, funny take on the search for a soulmate." —People
Laura Dave has already won adoring fans everywhere from Hollywood to the heartland, and she continues to win over readers with her addictive stories and astute insights about modern love. Los Angeles–based travel writer Annie Adams thinks she has it all. Nick, her longtime film director boyfriend, has finally hit the big time, her column is syndicated, and they've got a great dog. Then Nick moves out. Three months later, Annie is married to Griffin, a down-to-earth chef with a restaurant in the Berkshires. When Nick asks for a second chance, Annie is torn between her husband and the man she might have been meant to marry.
Dave (The Divorce Party) delivers an eager to please novel in this story of travel writer Annabelle Adams, whose world is turned upside down when Nick, her boyfriend of five years, leaves her. On the rebound, she meets Griffin, a chef who quickly marries her and whisks her from Los Angeles to his tiny hometown of Williamsburg, Mass. While Griffin is pretty much the perfect husband, Annie soon develops doubts about their relationship, fueled by smalltown living, the craziness of his family, and the unresolved feelings she has surrounding her breakup with Nick. Naturally, Nick resurfaces at a very inopportune moment for Griffin and forces Annie to truly decide between "an old love offering us happily ever after" and "that chance to be our best self." Annie's voice is clear if a bit heavy on Carrie Bradshawisms, and while there isn't much in the way of surprise or actual obstacles blocking the happily-ever-after, it's a cute story, capably told.
