Overview

Smile! It's not just the end of your marriage, it's the beginning of your second chance!

Missy Benson has a two and a half carat diamond engagement ring with color grade H, VS2 clarity and a value of $36,000. It's absolutely gorgeous, practically flawless, and let's be honest, really big!

But what the successful Chicago realtor doesn't have anymore is a husband. After 12 years of marriage, her husband, Paul, a handsome, wealthy attorney has devastated her by breaking up their marriage for Priscilla Sommerfeld, a young, personal trainer, who according to Missy's sassy assistant, J.J., looks more like a Las Vegas stripper than a fitness expert.

Not sure what to do with her ring, and with no financial issues to worry about, Missy decides to put it up for sale on Craigslist. The price: 99 cents! The catch: She gets to pick the buyer. In essence, she's looking for the perfect guy, but not for herself. Her hope is to regain faith that good men do exist, and that marriages can last forever.

Now referring to herself as "the divorced girl," Missy interviews dozens of young men who are vying for the huge ring. It's a contest that includes outrageous characters, hilarious and sentimental stories, and two finalists, both of whom Missy adores and who she must choose between. Then there's Parker Missoni, the sexiest contestant by far, who drives her crazy with his brutal honesty, and at the same time stops her heart with his deep brown eyes.

Divorced Girl Smiling is the story of a woman's journey to do whatever it takes to heal herself from divorce. It's about acceptance, reflection, taking accountability for mistakes, and appreciating all of life's wonderful gifts. In other words, if you have the guts to put the past behind, admit your mistakes, embrace your future, and give love another chance, you will surely be a divorced girl smiling.

Editorial Reviews

Mrs. Mommy Booknerd - Emily Lewis
“What a journey Divorced Girl Smiling is. I just adored this book for so many reasons. Pilossoph writes about the broken pieces of our self that need putting back together, the part of our self we keep hidden or unavailable, she writes truth, and writes the story with the strong, honest and humorous voice I have come to love and crave. She is the voice for divorced girls everywhere and for mothers, sisters, wives, friends and daughters.”

Chick Lit + - Rhonda Brittingham
“I laughed out loud, felt the pain and angst caused by divorce, and felt satisfaction. It was heartwarming to read about making new friends, rekindling old friendships, and accepting that things do happen for a reason.”
