If you think small-town life can be boring--think again. There are complex social rules: there are certain people with whom you fraternize and those you don`t, and, of course, there is the all-powerful gossip. Everyone knows everything about everyone else. Don`t they? That`s what Maddie Farraday thinks until she finds a pair of black crotchless panties in her husband`s car that don`t belong to her. That`s it; Maddie`s had it. She`s ready for change, and the first thing she`s going to do is divorce her no-good, philandering husband Brent. But then everything goes haywire: Brent turns up dead, Maddie`s daughter wants a dog, her best friend is suddenly acting very strange, and Maddie`s secret boyhood crush, bad boy C. L. Sturgis, arrives in town after a 20-year hiatus--and he`s as sexy as ever. You may laugh out loud at the wild and crazy antics in Jennifer Crusie`s exceptional novel, but you`ll exclaim with delight over the sizzling, dynamic, passionate affair between Maddie and her first love, C. L.

Go me - I finished a book! Woohoo!Ok...I have come to the conclusion that Crusie's strong point is she's great at character studies; it's just that sometimes I really don't relate well to the character she's created.Maddie is a respectable hobbit who never does anything unexpected - well, other tha...
This story was rather absorbing although it led me all over the place, sometimes humorous and other times very serious. The heroine varied between a flighty pushover and a strong sensitive woman but I was still intrigued. Maddie finds evidence her husband is cheating and accountant C.L. is investi...
