about

April Liesgang and Caleb Shannon have known each other for just three short months, so their Valentine's Day wedding at a chapel near the shores of Lake Michigan has both families in an uproar. As the festivities unfold (and the cash bar opens), everyone has an opinion and a lively prediction about April and Caleb's union, each the reflection of a different marital experience.

Meanwhile, at the nearby Hideaway Lodge, a domestic quarrel ends in tragedy. As April and Caleb's life together begins, death parts another man and woman in angry violence—and as the two stories gradually intersect, their juxtaposition explores the tangled roots of vulnerability and desire.

By the time the last polka has been danced and the bouquet tossed, Midnight Champagne has cast an extraordinary spell. From the novel's opening epigraph from Chekhov—"If you fear loneliness, then marriage is not for you"—to its final moments in the honeymoon suite, A. Manette Ansay weaves tenderness and fury, passion and wonder into a startling tapestry of love in all its paradox and power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not So Good It took forever for this book to go anywhere and once it did I was truly disappointed. At the very end of the book I sat there thinking so what? I have read reviews about her book 'Vinegar Hill' and apparently that one wasn't a page turner either. Too bad.

From Our Editors

More than half of all marriages ends in divorce. Despite this daunting statistic, April Liesgang and Caleb Shannon decide to get married on Valentine’s Day. Neither of their families are happy, because the two met only three months earlier. As their marriage nears, a domestic argument ends another nearby marriage in tragedy. In Midnight Champagne, A. Manette Ansay shows readers the parallels that exist between the two couples and the power, passions, and violence that can result from any given relationship.
