Alison has it all. She has an oh-so trendy job as a newspaper columnist writing about the single life. Her live-in boyfriend, Tom, is terrific. They have lots of good friends who come over for dinner parties. At one of these parties, Alison sends Tom out for some mustard and he never comes back. Not only is Alison appalled that he dumped her while they had company, but she is amazed that he thought so little of their relationship. When bad luck hits, it hits hard. Soon, Alison is unemployed. Her ex-boss and ex-fling Henry is dating her archenemy—the witless daily columnist of the other local paper. Then Tom returns, with the mustard. Seriously bad timing on Tom's part.

    " If you like Chick-Lit, this is a good one. I really enjoy Sarah's writing style, it's easy and flows nicely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ali | 2/12/2014

    " This book made me laugh out loud! For all the CRAZY thoughts us woman have surrounding relationships this made me feel a little more "normal" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julianne Dunn | 2/10/2014

    " It was pretty good but I feel like I might have missed the point. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 1/24/2014

    " Boring, uninteresting, vapid and shallow chic lit about a young woman dealing with the aftermath of a break up with her live in boyfriend. The characters were unappealing, the storyling very boring, and the writing mediocre. The only interesting aspect of the book is the main character's struggle with her strict Christian upbringing and how it relates to her current dating. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 1/23/2014

    " Easy beach read, but fairly predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi | 1/21/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was an easy read and the author hit on a lot of things that I saw in my own life. It's a great read if you aren't looking for anything too in-depth. Just something to lose yourself in. Great for a summer day at the beach! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/10/2014

    " This is definitely a chick lit book. I read it probably as quickly as I read "He's Just Not That Into You" many years ago and really it seems to follow a lot of the same themes. I was an easy read and I have to admit, I enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meeka | 1/7/2014

    " The synopsis on the back cover is better than what I read. I only made it to page 31...ugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anisa | 1/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. Very light hearted and I felt like the author was talking to me directly and felt like I was one of her friends LOL. Enjoyed it thoroughly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/4/2014

    " Very fun book to read! I really enjoyed what she said about relationships as well as her own self-reflection. It was a nice feel good, optimistic book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/16/2013

    " Great book. "A tale of love lost and sought is sweet and funny." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miss | 12/15/2013

    " Good book for a quick escape. Very Sex in the City-ish. The author's perspective was sometimes a creepy echo of thoughts that cross my own mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 12/13/2013

    " okay, it's not Tolstoy. but it is perfect summertime reading. delightful romantic comedy about a formerly evangelical Christian woman trying to make her way in the world of dating and sex while carrying around the baggage of her upbringing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 10/7/2013

    " I picked up this book at Costco while on Easter Holiday! It was a good book, I kept waiting for something fabulous to happen. I did keep reading it, it held my interest. I liked the way it ended. It was the author's first book, I will probably read her next book, as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sylvie | 9/29/2013

    " It's a breezy, engaging readable bit of chick lit. Funny, clever, highly readable. Some funny observations along the way. But it's the lightest of light. I'd call it perfect beach reading or a nice way to wind down a tiring day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 6/3/2013

    " this was a funny book. her writing is a little offbeat, and i enjoyed it because of the style. the ending was somewhat predictable, but a good read just the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anee | 5/22/2013

    " I really enjoyes Dunn's writing style, but the story was nothing special. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Mallison-austin | 4/21/2013

    " This is a sweet story of a woman who is dumped at her own dinner party and the aftermath of that dumping. The boyfriend comes back, but thankfully, she realizes that his crawling back wasn't enough. It wasn't what she wanted and she moves on. The open-ended ending makes me feel hopeful for her. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eugenia | 3/9/2013

    " I just took it from my shelf even haven't read what it is about. I still can't say whether I like it or not. But it is usefull in that period of time I'm living now. I just wonder if it will help me somehow or not... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 11/2/2012

    " Just ok - amusing in parts but would only recommend if you have nothing else around to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie Lundquist | 10/18/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Kendrick | 6/22/2011

    " super fun, fast read. she's the neurotic, reformed envangelical christian that should have been a character on sex and the city. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Very | 5/26/2011

    " Starts off okay then devolves into the worst kind of generic, cliche chick lit imaginable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 5/9/2011

    " There was nothing particularly interesting about this book for me. The writing was very casual, the story wasn't captivating and I didn't laugh. Oh well. At least it was an easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 4/8/2011

    " This novel read like talking to my mom. The character would start out talking about one thing and than go off on a tangent. Very annoying. "
