I really enjoyed this book. The disconnect between what you tell yourself is wonderful and what your body says "oh yeah" to is screaming here. The other book club members also read the selection from each of her life choice viewpoint. Literary book club selections often don't connect with me on this personal life level. It s fun to read, escapist and encouraged me to smell some roses (safely, of course).

Well, you convinced me. I'm going to download this book to my Nook. (As soon as I get it working.) Tis the season to do something nice for yourself, right? Hot chocolate and a steamy read. Thanks for the suggestion.
