FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TEN BEACH ROAD AND OCEAN BEACH, A NEW NOVEL OF FOUR FRIENDS—AND A SHARED PASSION THAT COULD CHANGE THEIR LIVES.  
When the concierge of The Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building, invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and—even more unexpectedly—with each other…
Samantha Davis married young and for the wrong reason: the security of old Atlanta money—for herself and for her orphaned brother and sister. She never expected her marriage to be complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal.
Claire Walker is now an empty nester and struggling author who left her home in the suburbs for the old world charm of The Alexander, and for a new and productive life. But she soon wonders if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than having no dreams at all.
And then there’s Brooke MacKenzie, a woman in constant battle with her faithless ex-husband. She’s just starting to realize that it’s time to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be.
For Samantha, Claire, Brooke—and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings—it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life’s hardest moments—all of it reflected in the unfolding drama, comedy, and convergent lives of Downton Abbey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I truly didn't want to put this book down. The characters came alive - and I really liked them! The way the author wound the story around Downton Abbey really fit as well. I've never read Wendy Wax before, but I will definitely be reading her now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time to relax and enjoy. As a fan of the television series Downton Abbey, I was interested to discover how this modern book could relate to the Edwardian life of a castle. The friends and neighbours who met to watch and discuss the weekly episodes of the programme became intertwined with each other's lives and problems. I found this book to be a delightful read and was disappointed when it ended, I would like to read more from this author.
