After a disastrous break-up, Leila bans men for a year and chronicles her single life on a blog. The blog gets a lot of response and attention and, against all the odds, Leila keeps her promise of celibacy until she meets Nick. Her sister, Tasha, has been married for fifteen years and has three children and a beautiful house and pretends not to see her husband’s continual cheating. After focusing all her energies on her wedding, Lucy - Tasha and Leila’s bossy sister-in-law - wants to start a family and have a baby but for some reason, things don’t go according to plan.
I loved the family dynamics and how close everyone is. The characters feel real and they are witty and likable, although there are a few exceptions. The novel starts really good and strong, but it loses a little along the way. Overall, with laugh-out loud scenes and dramatic moments, this is a heart-warming and romantic comedy that will entertain. (NP)
