Jane Green's books are often deceptively simple stories of women in various stages of life, dealing with the slings and arrows of relationships and aging.

As the reader, you definitely know where this book is headed the entire time. She's definitely going to cheat on her perfect husband (whom, yes, you will love too, almost immediately). And she's going to get caught. And her life is going to fall apart. Right? But knowing the mistakes Gabby is going to make don't make them any less devastating, or dramatic, or exciting. You'll be as breathless as she is when she leans in to flirt with this younger dude, and as nervous as she is when she's sneaking emails under her husband's nose. Good luck getting to sleep with this one!
