I like Jillian Medoff’s other novels, but this one fell short.
The story is told by Janey Fabre, an unreliable narrator. When she discovers her boyfriend has a fiancé, she starts group therapy with six other dysfunctional and unlikable women. Although I didn’t like Janey, I did root for her.
If not for the last quarter of the novel, I’d have given this one star.
Read her other novels, they are worthwhile.
I gave this book a three because the writing was tight and descriptive. I liked the main character, Janey, and thought the actuarial references were hilarious (OK, I worked for an actuarial firm in high school), but the climactic event in the book is so far-fetched that it ruined the book for me. If you can get past that, the book is a good read.
