HARPERCOLL

February the fifteenth is a very special day for me. It is the day I gave birth to my first child. It is also the day my husband left me...I can only assume the two events weren't entirely unrelated.

Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to their first baby, James informs her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a postpartum body that she can hardly bear to look at.

She decides to go home to Dublin. And there, sheltered by the love of a quirky family, she gets better. So much so, in fact, that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise.

I have read and enjoyed many of Marian Keyes novels (she is in my top 3 favourites). This novel made me laugh on many occasions and really pulled at my hearts strings on others. I truly got a great understanding of who the characters where. If you like Keyes you are sure to enjoy this and if you are new to her this book really shows off her charming and witty writing!

This book was ok. I was a little disappointed as I have liked other Marian Keyes books.
