  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 February #2
    D'Aprix Sweeney follows up her debut novel, The Nest (2016), with this character-driven story exploring the lives and laments of two couples. Flora and Julian are finally feeling financially stable since finding steady jobs in L.A., Flora doing regular voice-over work and Julian starring in a television show; officially dedicating more of his time to his acting than his perpetually struggling theater company back in New York, Good Company. Their daughter, Ruby, has just graduated high school and Flora is hunting for a picture taken when Ruby was five, at Good Company's summer theater upstate, with the three of them and their best friends, Margot and David. What she doesn't expect to find is Julian's original wedding ring, the one he claimed to have lost that same summer, sending Flora down memory lane, questioning everything she believed about her marriage and her best friend. Masterfully building character (although Julian and David get the short shrift) and dropping revelations through flashbacks, D'Aprix Sweeney's writing is smooth and propelling. Readers of introspective, relational novels will devour this. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Nest was a bona fide megahit, and with plenty of fanfare already generating, fans are primed for Good Company.
