Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listeners are swept away by romantic discovery and melodrama in this outstanding performance by Pamela Almand…Almand’s portrayal of Marcy, an exhausted mother who must keep the wedding planning from spiraling out of control, is absolutely spot-on. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Prepare to laugh a lot, cry a little, and come away from this novel feeling full of hope and joy.” Camille Pagán, author of Life and Other Near-Death Experiences
“Funny, poignant, and downright heartwarming! Rothstein is definitely an author to watch. Her humor is snappy and smart, yet she knows how to tug at a reader’s heart and leave them with a sigh.” Bette Lee Crosby, author of The Summer of New Beginnings
“Hilarious and heartfelt, Rothstein’s latest overflows with authenticity as we follow Marcy navigating life after her marriage has gone to seed. The novel thrums with honesty, balanced with the perfect mix of tension, laughter, and self-discovery. Allow yourself to laugh out loud!” Eliza Gordon, author of Dear Dwayne, With Love
