When Alice's wealthy—and much coveted—teenage crush, Joe, asks her to marry him, she is prepared to trade in her dream of a cottage filled with children, animals and home-cooked meals for what he has in mind for her: stilettos, blond highlights, and a diet. She tells herself that she's happy to sacrifice for love, especially when every woman in London would like to be in her shoes. But when her cheating Prince Charming is forced to relocate to New York as a result of an indiscretion with a female colleague, Alice feels her life spinning out of control. But soon enough, she finds herself renovating a country house in Connecticut—and in the process rediscovering herself. Friends, fresh air, and her best friend's boyfriend offer her a glimpse of a life—and love—she always wanted. But can she break Joe's spell?
"A sparkling morality tale that points the finger at bad boys and low-rent romance."—The Independent, U.K.
I feel as though the past few books have been dictated by the publisher and that she has been rushing to get through them to get them out to the public but they don't realize the quality is lacking. The beginning and middle of this book is very well written and really makes the reader want to continue but the ending just seems pushed together as though she just wanted to be done with it. I just hope her quality returns. No one expects her to put out 10 books a year, I would be happy with one book that truly shows all she is capable of and the knowledge she know she has about women and what they want to read.
