John McCann, a man who judges life by the tally of an accounts ledger, has a supreme goal in life: To achieve, live, and enjoy the rarified executive lifestyle. But he's encountered one problem: The migraines are going to continue to get worse unless you make some major changes in your lifestyle. What you need is a 'sea change'... Perhaps buy a nice little business in the country, settle down, something easier to occupy your time... While John knows the doctor is right, he just can't resign from the job he's fought so hard for. He decides the sacrifice of taking a year's leave of absence won't interfere too much with his plans, and so he finds himself running Margins, a cozy little bookstore, with the help of the former owner's son, Jamie. John expects to put in his year, get his stress under control, and then get back to business. What John doesn't expect is how Margins and its denizens draw him in, particularly the quiet, disheveled man who takes refuge in the old leather chair in the second-hand book section. John's plans for an unattached year of simple business crumble when he meets David and is forced to reevaluate life, love and what he really wants from both. John and David are forced to come to terms with their pasts as they struggle to determine what possible future they might build together.

DNF at 30%I can't take it anymore. I feel like I am reading the phone book. I do not feel anything (except annoyance) while reading this book. I absolutely dislike the characters and I do not want to read any more about these horrible people...Even the sex feels like reciting a grocery list. How can...
It was an enjoyable read, pretty nice, warmhearted story a là Walt Disney that I finished in one sitting. There were though some serious issues that prevented me from rating it higher. Let me say so:I like the principal idea of the book. I'm not sure about the performance.It was a lot of nice things...
I love this book. This is in essence omniscient 3rd person POV, we get into everyone’s head. Now, the alternating POV is a little confusing and will change from one paragraph to the next, but it really helps to know what’s going on. And there is a lot going on. I don’t mind the insta-love in this bo...
It took awhile for me to get into this book. I wasn't really liking John too much for a good portion of it, but he grew on me. Poor poor David. Dude was a mess, understandably so but OY. David's issues were handled well, but I wish there had been more about why/what it was that started him on his pa...
3.5 stars. It was sweet, but it never really drew me in. I'm not quite sure why. I didn't feel as though I wasted my time reading it though, just never grabbed me like most books seem to.
