Hallie's husband, Bill, doesn't even wait until they get home from dropping off their youngest daughter at Yale to announce that he's leaving for fitness trainer Ashlee (two e's, perky breasts, and shiny hair to boot). After first succumbing to an Oreo-induced coma, Hallie is determined to get her life back. An unexpected call from an old college boyfriend sets a plan in motion. Whatever happened to all those men she didn't marry?
First up is Eric, now an international businessman and number 277 on Forbes' "Richest People in the World" list. He and Hallie used to put a nickel in the piggy bank every time they made love. Now Eric would like to renew the investment. Next she finds Rav Jon Yoma Maharishi, formerly known as Barry. Her one-time backpacking boyfriend has become the spiritual leader at the Heavenly Spirit Retreat Center, and their reunion would be a little smoother if he weren't in the midst of a three-day silent meditation. Kevin, the sexiest man she ever met, is now a scuba-diving photographer working on Angelina Jolie's latest movie. When he seduces her into joining him at his beachfront paradise on Virgin Gorda, Hallie can overlook his gaggle of bikini-clad friends, but can a woman survive on a steady diet of sex, sharks, and air tanks?

First off, when I say that Janice Kaplan and Lynn Schnumberger came out with another book, I was super excited. Especially since Susan Denaker was the narrator again. But there were some problems:
Although Susan is a great narrator, she makes me think too much of the other characters in the other two books, and I kept merging them all together.
This book was trying to be funny and also serious. These Authors can't pull of serious, stick with the funny.
I really had to force myself to finish this book. I really didn't get pulled into the story.
Even though this was an unabridged book, I felt that they didn't give enough background of the other characters. I really didn't get to know them.
I would not recommend this book.
