Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Life is sweet for New Yorkers Molly and Gabe: they're young, in love, and newly engaged. But when Gabe sells his first novel--a thinly-veiled retelling of his wild love affair with ex-girlfriend Talia--and it becomes a national sensation, Molly can't help but feel like the third wheel. To make matters worse, Talia reappears in Gabe's life, eager to capitalize on the book's success and to rekindle what she had with Gabe... at least, that's how it seems to Molly. But of even more concern? Gabe doesn't seem concerned at all. Instead, he's delighting in his newfound fame and success. Jealous, paranoid, and increasingly desperate, Molly starts to spin out of control. Her social life, work life, and love life all go to pieces. As fact and fiction, and past and present, begin to blur, Molly realizes the only way out of this downward spiral is to fight her way back up. But what--if anything--will be left of her life and her relationship when she arrives?"-- Provided by publisher.

    Molly is loving life as a newly engaged woman to Gabe, who just sold his first novel. When she reads the book, however, she quickly realizes that it could be considered a retelling of his relationship with his ex, Talia. Molly goes off the deep end, stalking Talia, messing up at her job in HR, maxing out her credit cards, and running into the arms of her first love—despite her imminent wedding. Palmer's latest (after If We Lived Here, 2015) is right on time for the resurgence of the chick-lit novel (see also Hannah Orenstein and Samantha Young). Combining relationship woes and female friendship, she creates a humorous take on what happens when a woman is scorned. Secondary characters, including Molly's best friends and her sister-in-law, are well developed, and their own story lines give the novel even more depth. Molly's relationship with her Type A mother will have readers laughing, as will her inner monologues as she's reading Gabe's novel. An excellent read, best enjoyed with a good glass of wine.
