Overview

Mona Berman has it all—a twenty-year marriage, a successful career as a romance novelist, and three teenage daughters. But when her husband, Brian, leaves her for someone younger, thinner, blonde, and French, she has to step back and take a good, long look at her life.

First, her career. She can’t continue to write about “Happily Ever After,” so she changes the heroine of her new book from a hot young thing to a forty-something woman who manages to find happiness without a man. Her agent isn’t too happy—the heroine is how old? She doesn’t get the guy in the end? How is that even possible?

But Mona is tough, and she’s got Anthony, her personal assistant, and a few good friends to cheer her on and keep the stiff martinis flowing. And Ben. Ben is her plumber, but not your average plumber. He’s smart enough to know that Brian was never good enough for her, and sexy enough to be cast as the romantic lead in quite a few of her books. The sound of his voice alone can send her imagination into full romantic overdrive.

Then she meets Mitch, who might be just the guy for her. And there’s still Ben, who’s managed to come to her rescue more than once. But—there’s a book to publish, a soon-to-be-ex-husband to deal with, and what has Aunt Lily done this time?

Can Mona work this all out? Can life imitate art, and can Mona write her own happy ending?

Editorial Reviews

Lisa Plantamura
Great story about someone we all know -- she's so real! I enjoyed every page --you will, too!
Jackie Gilbert
I loved this book. I wanted Mona to be my friend. I had lots of advice to give her & wanted to sit with her and drink wine and discuss all sorts of things! We would have exchanged experiences and I would have liked to know her daughters also. She made decisions I agreed with and others I felt were not right but I still liked her. Who hasn't found themselves wondering exactly what the right thing to do when it comes to matters of the heart? Mona, you rule!
Karen Yuknevitch
The many reasons to love this book include a smart and funny heroine, men we all know and sometimes even love, and life situations familiar to those of us at a certain age. You will enjoy the story immensely and long for a sequel.
