Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great story on a tough subject I’ll say right up front that this book deals with infidelity so if that is any kind of trigger, this book may not be for you. That said, infidelity is not glamorized and its consequences are not glossed over in the story; really it’s painted in a very unflattering light rather than treated lightly in any way. Frazer and Cora are interesting to read when they’re in the bubble of their affair versus their behavior around others; the characters involved in the affair are not always likable but they are very well written with sometimes very ugly character flaws. I loved G Benson’s first book, All the Little Things, but was hesitant to read this book because of the subject matter; I am glad I did read it though. It is a difficult read, heavy with real emotions and consequences to the behaviors of the characters; thankfully there are lighter moments in this story and some wonderful supporting characters to round out the book and provide some laughs. The highlight that I didn’t expect in this book is that one of the patients Frazer and Cora counsel thru their pregnancy is trans and that made for eye opening reading. The ending of the book felt abrupt to me and left me with questions about some plot points that seemed unresolved in the end. I am curious to see what G Benson will write about next and will read her future books because of the humor in them and bold topics she tackles with unflinching honesty. G Benson is a terrific writer and I recommend her books with the caveat about infidelity for this one; if it’s an issue for you then try her other book, All the Little Moments, first to get a good sense of her writing style and humor.
