Brought to you by OBS reviewer JoAnne

Sarah Green lives a comfortable life with her adman husband, Mike, and their two children, Dan and Ella, 8 and 5, respectively. Mike makes plenty of money, and Sarah, who before her marriage was an up-and-coming fashion designer, is happily renovating their new home, and is lucky she can afford to send her two children to a private school. When she discovers that Mike, who started gambling only to “blow off steam,” due to his stressful job, has taken it up full-time and put them in serious debt, her world begins to crumble around her. And when he dies in a freak accident one evening (the same evening she has decided to ask him for a divorce), her world completely falls apart.

She has no income, two fatherless children and is completely lost. She speaks to a friend who is a financial adviser, and he tells her that she must sell her beloved home and plan to ‘economize.’ While seriously trying to keep things together, she also finds out that her Aunt Shirley, her mother’s sister, is dying. To keep her mother happy, she goes to visit her aunt, and during the visit, Shirley sort-of extracts a promise from her: that Sarah take over Shirley’s failing lingerie shop and try to make a go of it.

Sarah, who has for months lived with the fear of having nothing because of Mike’s gambling, and has nearly ended up that way, is determined to sell the shop for what she can get out of it and try to move on. But when a sudden windfall – almost a last gift from Shirley – comes her way, she realizes that she has a chance to try.

I've been a Sue Margolis fan for years so I was really excited to read her latest. This was a great, fun read that I wound up tearing through in nearly one sitting (thank you insomnia) and I found the story to be the entertainment I expected, but with little extra heart. The subplots are well woven into the main story and it has the usual cast of crazy supporting characters that you know you'll find in a Sue Margolis novel. Having my own crazy Jewish family there was so much I associated with in Sarah's interaction with her family members and her aunties reminded me so much of my own aunts and grandmother. There's a lot of humor and I even teared up a little at the end. If you're looking for a good poolside or beach read this summer this is it.

Loved Sue Margolis' other books and was so excited for the latest. However, this was quite predictable and a little boring. Didn't feel the love for the new couple or any feeling for the last minute, not developed, villain. Not heat and not much feeling.

BEST SUPPORTING ROLE by Sue Margolis is an interesting New Adult/Contemporary. WOW~what an interesting tale of dating, suddenly being a single Mom, and love.

Sarah Green, finds herself a single Mom, after the death of her gambling-addicted husband's death. Penniless, with two children and thrust back into the dating game. What is more safer than dating an accountant. And she work at a crime help line, non-emergency, of course. Than her aunt dies, and leaves her, her failing lingerie shop. Enter, Hugh, a struggling actor, who Sarah hire to renovate her new boutique. Sarah must learn to trust her instincts and follow her dreams and move forward.

Funny, witty, original and engaging. A must read tale of a struggling single Mom, the renovation of a boutique, a struggling actor, the dating game, and finding love against all odds.

The characters are engaging. The storyline funny, with wicked candor,and a bit of naughtiness. Oh yeah, and the Aunts are just plain funny. A fun and entertaining story, with it's compelling moments as well. A engaging and enjoyable read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Sarah is a fantastic main character - mom of two and at the beginning married to a man who is very successful in his career, but started to use gambling as a stress reliever and in doing so has gambled away everything they had. As I won't be spoiling the book a bit, as Sarah decides to leave the marriage, her husband dies - I won't tell you how, that is worth reading! So although Sarah is free from a horrible relationship and situation; she is now a single mom of two with no income and lots of debt. This is where the story begins!

Each character in this book was spot on! Sarah, the kids, the grandparents, "the Aunties", and so on were just written to a T. The ups and downs of the story were perfectly timed and couldn't contain my excitement when I was surprised by a few of Sarah's decisions. Although I am not usually a fan of books set in London with all the London speak, this one didn't make me feel left out of the joke - I honestly read it in two sittings!

Sue Margolis has done it once again! I found this author last summer in my public library and since then have purchased and read most of her books! She writes delightfully funny romantic novels involving strong, but feminine women. (As a strong, independent, yet hopefully feminine single mom, I can totally relate to most all of her main characters!) This novel is about a woman who suddenly finds herself a widow with two children who finds the inner strength she always had and actually ends up achieving the dreams that she had once put on hold for her family. Along the way, she finds friendship and love that makes her life all the better!

The book is a pleasure to read and you will find yourself laughing out loud many times! I can't wait for the author's next novel!
