Publisher Description

National Bestseller: A hilarious and emotionally charged novel about a couple who embark on an open marriage-what could possibly go wrong?
Lucy and Owen, ambitious, thoroughly-therapized New Yorkers, have taken the plunge, trading in their crazy life in a cramped apartment for Beekman, a bucolic Hudson Valley exurb. They've got a two hundred year-old house, an autistic son obsessed with the Titanic, and 17 chickens, at last count.

It's the kind of paradise where stay-at-home moms team up to cook the school's "hot lunch," dads grill grass-fed burgers, and, as Lucy observes, "chopping kale has become a certain kind of American housewife's version of chopping wood." When friends at a wine-soaked dinner party reveal they've made their marriage open, sensible Lucy balks.

There's a part of her, though-the part that worries she's become too comfortable being invisible -- that's intrigued. Why not try a short marital experiment? Six months, clear ground rules, zero questions asked. When an affair with a man in the city begins to seem more enticing than the happily-ever-after she's known for the past nine years, Lucy must decide what truly makes her happy: "real life," or the "experiment?"

Quick Read

Enjoyable quick read, because I couldn't stop for too long. Absolutely not the best book of the year, but it kept my interest and I was hoping the best for the two main characters.

Just ok

Decent, fast read but very predictable. I kept wanting there to be a twist or something unexpected but it ended the way you would expect it to. Not bad for an easy read but don’t be surprised it is kind of boring

The Arrangement

I couldn't put it down. I could relate to so much of this story. But it is not funny. I don't know where people get that. Yes there are some humorous things that happen, but mostly it's bittersweet and another sad testament to where we've gotten as a society.
