Publisher's Summary

Lance is a former weatherman, now a buff yogi and stay-at-home dad. Belle is his precocious and quick-witted daughter. Darlene is a classic Type A work-a-holic; she has little time or patience for the needs of her husband and daughter. And just down the street are Alec and Wren. Alec, a womanizing businessman, is also the financial backer - and sometimes more - behind Darlene's burgeoning empire. Meanwhile, Wren is a talented yogi, ready to lay down the mat for a quick session with Lance.

As looming Santa Ana winds threaten to turn brushfires into catastrophe, Playdate proves that relationships are complicated and what happens next door, beyond the hedges, in the executive office - it's all as combustible as a quick brushfire on a windy day.

What the Critics Say

"Adams is that rare writer who sends out every laugh with a sting in its tail. Most novels fade from the memory. This one sticks." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)

"Adams writes with cinematic flair, great visuals, and dialogue that zings... the characters are good company and the story engaging... This Playdate makes learning fun." (Chronogram Magazine)

"This gimlet-eyed take on modern marriage lets no one off the hook... the illusions they live by are firmly - and often hilariously - skewered." (Parade Magazine )
