Alex has been with her husband, Michael, since they were kids but she is blindsided when the ESPN sports commentator is outed after an affair with a college basketball player. When Michael admits he is gay, she tells him their marriage is over. Keen to find love again, she begins dating again, spurred on by her friends, political consultant Darcy and yoga studio owner Samantha, and even her ex.
This novel starts with a bang, as Alex weathers the fallout of her husband’s scandal. I particularly enjoyed reading about her interesting job as an environmental psychologist and found her an engaging character. It’s a humorous and entertaining read about an amicable separation and a new beginning.
