    What if—whoosh, right now, with no explanation—a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?That’s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened—not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children.

    Great story. I inadvertently read Left Behind before I realized who wrote it and that they were serious. I like this much better and I love this narrator.

    Ace has left the tiny Mississippi town of Bugtussle for the palm fronds and mojitos of Pelican Cove, Florida. She's finally opening her long-dreamed-of art gallery, is kick-starting a life with her fiancé, Mason, and has vowed to leave her straight-talking, sassy ways behind her. From now on, she's going to be as sweet as sugar. Unfortunately, something comes along to sour her plans. That something is Mrs. Lenore Kennashaw and her coterie of crones. They're a bunch of snippy, snarky, and just plain mean ol' ladies who aren't quite as smart or rich as they'd like to think they are.

    I was embarrassed for Ace (the main character) for a good part of the book and by the end just plain disappointed. There were some entertaining parts but it all just leads to a bad ending. :(

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    Don't let the title fool you. There is so much depth and many layers to this book.

    Sometimes in life you need a little breathing room, especially when your life has just fallen apart. Dr. Isabel Favor, America's diva of self help, knows this all too well. She's lost her fiancé to an earth mother, her accountant has absconded with her money, and her self-help empire is in shambles. She flees the country to Tuscany, waiting for life to settle down, but the biggest disaster lies just ahead. On one unforgettable night, she's about to meet Lorenzo Gage, Hollywood's favorite villain.

    Story

    If you are looking for sex scenes, you will probably like this book. I enjoy an occasional sex scene, but this is not really my style. Not much of a story here either. This woman is trying to liberate her sexual being. But I get embarrassed for her and that's not sexy.
