Description

From the nationally bestselling author of The Hole in the Middle, a witty, insightful new novel about juggling the demands of three husbands—a work husband, an almost husband and an ex-husband—and figuring out the true meaning of family
Avery Graham has built a life that anyone would admire. She has a brilliant career as chief of staff to Peter Haines, the charismatic mayor of Toronto. She has a devoted partner in Matt, her live-in boyfriend of fourteen years. And she has a loving family and deep friendships that stretch back to childhood summers at the cottage.
But when Matt proposes, Avery’s past threatens to engulf her present. Can she contemplate a lifetime commitment to Matt after her disastrous first marriage to Hugh? And is Matt really the love of her life, when she has spent so much of it by Peter’s side? Avery could use some good advice from the women who know her best, but her closest friends, Jenny and Tara, have drifted away over the years.
When a scandal erupts at city hall, Avery must overcome her deepest fears about love and loss and discover what it means to be a family.

Editorial Reviews

“Kate Hilton is really smart, funny and honest about the complex and shifting power dynamics in both domestic and work relationships.”

— Kate Eberlen, bestselling author of <em>Miss You</em>

“No one captures the feverish intensity of modern life, with its attendant disappointments, crises, and occasional triumphs, better than Kate Hilton.”

— Jennifer Robson, bestselling author of <em>Goodnight from London</em> 

“Kate Hilton achieves the difficult feat of making us empathize with a flawed heroine whose willful reluctance to draw boundaries around a demanding job puts her most important relationships at risk. Keenly-observed, insightful, and punctuated with brilliant, revealing moments of dark humour, this novel is impossible to put down.”

— Janie Chang, bestselling author of <em>Dragon Springs Road</em>

“A wise, gripping and profoundly funny novel about the mysterious Bermuda Triangle where friendship, love and work meet and try to survive.”

— Elizabeth Renzetti, author of <em>Based on a True Story</em>

“A witty, thoughtful and layered tale of families, friends, and lovers. . . . messy and wise, heartbreaking and heartwarming, and above all, utterly captivating.”

— Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour
