The romance in this book is a distant second to the relationship between the sisters, Jenny and Rachel. As much as I liked Jenny, she was kind of a doormat. Her husband dumps her, then meets a new wife and has a baby within months, but he's determined to keep Jenny as a friend. Jenny is funny and kind, a good person. She meets Leo, and while I enjoyed their banter, Leo was a jerk a lot of the time. I liked them better as friends.
Rachel is a SAHM with three-year-old triplets who finds out her husband is having an affair. Rachel goes through a rollercoaster of emotions, and her story felt really believable. One minute she wants to stab her husband, the next she wants to save her family. She changes a lot through the course of the book, and I found myself really cheering her on.
There are lots of funny moments in this book, many provided by Jenny and Rachel's mother. I love a book that can make me tear up one minute, then laugh the next.
Maybe it was because I could unfortunately relate to what Rachel was going through, but I felt the emotions coming off the pages. Kristan does a great job portraying the aftermath of infidelity on a marriage. It isn't as black and white as most would believe.
Both sisters grow and change, standing up for themselves and ending up a stronger person. I loved the secondary characters as well, especially Leo. I would love a follow up to this book, just a glimpse of how everyone is doing.
