One of 20 Five ** Reviews:  Finding out your husband is being unfaithful is hard enough, but when you hear about it from a friend... that sucks. Then to add the cherry on top, he texts you that he wants a divorce. Cindy's week was NOT going well. Now she'd have to adjust to a whole new dating world. Cindy wasn't sure she even wanted to get involved with it all after Glenn. With encouragement from her friends, Cindy begins to explore the world as a single woman. It's not all it's cracked up to be.

A fun and romantic look at life after divorce. Ms. Ricci stepped into an area many are afraid to face and taught us it's okay to laugh at ourselves. She's taught us we're never to old to learn something new about life. This book is a story and guide all in one. Terrifically real characters and magnificent writing make this book a joy to read. I read this book and kept saying to myself, I've met every one of these types of men too. I LOVED IT! Ms. Ricci is right on the money with this book. You have to get your copy today!

I found no issues with this one.

I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it touched my heart!

Another review:  "Is that supposed to be some sort of threat, Glen? I'm damn good at my job and you know it."
He scratches his ass quite thoroughly. "Nope, not a threat, just practical advice."

It was lines like this that made this book so enjoyable for me.

Here's one more just for fun: I email Larry to go s*** in his hat.

This book was very amusing, to say the least. I don't think I've laughed out loud from a book in a long time. It's an easy to read book, meaning it kept my interest and I couldn't wait to get back to it from whatever reason I had to put it down.

It was very entertaining, to go with Cindy, the protagonist, on some of her wild and most often weird dates and I cringed over some of them remembering some of my own. She is a character you just can't help relating with, particularly if you've ever been through a divorce. At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read a book about such a depression topic, having been through the process myself. However, Susan Ricci has a way of taking something bad like divorce and all the crap that goes along with it and making it an interesting and fun read and I found myself nodding with an "uh huh" several times throughout the book. I became a little annoyed with Cindy at one point but within a few short pages I was relieved to see she came to her senses.

Glen was quite a character and loved hating him. That's about all I'll say about that guy.

Jay was a breath of fresh air and I'm going to go out on a limb and say I have one of these guys for my very own.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been through a divorce, both men and women. Men might learn something and women will surely appreciate the humor as well as the grief.
