  "I wouldn't recommend it." by TLCmommie (see profile) 04/05/11

I'm not a fan of reading about people cheating on their spouse. The point was well driven about the dangers of a person feeling unfulfilled in their marriage.

 
  "Heart of the Matter" by SCMADH1 (see profile) 04/10/11

Not a lot of substance. The book drags on and is very predictable.

 
  "heart of the matter" by msharry (see profile) 04/16/11

Talk about a no-win love triangle. Characters seemed interesting but flawed, and the whole sad mess possible. Choices we make have impact on so many people besides ourselves.

 
  "True to life = Predictable" by tballard (see profile) 06/04/11

Pretty much your man cheats on wife and then realizes his mistake. Characters are well-developed and likeable. The ending is very real but predictable which was kinda a letdown.....

 
  "Great title for a club of 30-something moms" by brenee1973 (see profile) 06/14/11

We had 15 members join us the evening we talked about this book and boy oh boy did it kindle some interesting conversation. It may not have been the best book we've read to date, but I think it brought on the most conversation. Perhaps it's a little closwe to home for us. We're a group of weonen, primarily in our 30s, most of us are stay at home momes. We can relate!

 
  "heart of the matter" by ocreader (see profile) 07/03/11

A quick, easy summer read, but very predictable and didn't leve us with much to discuss.

 
  "Better Than Expected" by kpomazal (see profile) 07/05/11

We won this book for our book club, and some of us weren't sold on the idea of a book that's about infidelity, but also a beach read. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised. Good writing, interesting points of view, and made for a great discussion.
