“Genuinely funny.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Heartfelt . . . What at first seems like a light novel about familiar woes turns into a deeper story about trust, family, and perception.”—Publishers Weekly

freakout about growing old together read as childish, immature, and - to be frank - somewhat disingenuous. By the time I realized that Something Serious was most certainly going on, I wasn't sure I cared. The way the couple's surprises backfired was somewhat entertaining, but what I found myself enjoying most and wishing to read more about was Sylvie's job - both the museum and her employer were delightful, and those sections never dragged. While I do enjoy the family secrets theme, I'm so sorry to say the whole thing just fell flat.
She surprised me with the ending. Though I had a suspicion about where it might go, I didn’t see it coming at all. But boy oh boy, was it ever satisfying!
There’s a formula to Kinsella’s books, and yet they never feel formulaic. She has a way of keeping things fresh, even though her path is a familiar one. I absolutely loved it.
I realize I have written nothing about the plot or the characters. I don’t need to. Read the book. You won’t be sorry.

This eagerly awaited book was very disappointing; too much angst and very few laughs!
