After being together for 10 years, Sylvie and Dan have all the trimmings of a happy life and marriage; they have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls and communicate so seamlessly, they finish each other's sentences. However, a trip to the doctor projects they will live another 68 years together, and panic sets in. They never expected "until death do us part" to mean seven decades. In the name of marriage survival, they quickly concoct a plan to keep their relationship fresh and exciting.

I've listened to write affect of Sophie Kinsella books and have enjoyed them all. At first, I wasn't sure about this one but it was entertaining and I kept on. As the story started to unravel, I found myself enjoying it more and even moved me to shed a few tears. I love the way this author writes and in this book, how she made everythingb come together making sense at the end. I encourage anyone who enjoys this author, to get this book!

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

This is an incredibly well-written, well-told and well-executed story! It’s exactly the kind of book I want to read! Suspenseful, thrilling, and clear language that keeps you in the story. One of the best books I’ve listened to in a very long time! Well done A.J. Finn!

While this is a shorter audio book than usual , it doesn't change the fact that Pious is a very powerful story. It kept me intrigued from start to finish. The narrator also did an outstanding job delivering the story and portraying the characters.

The beginning of the book is rather slow and the narrator sounded a little flat. At first I couldn't connect with the characters especially the protagonist. However, I urge the reader or listener to give this book a chance. This is a very well thought-out novel- every detail carefully inserted in the story giving it purpose. Everything comes together towards the end and all questions are answered. The narrator begins to take more form as the story unravels. Alison Gaylin did a remarkable job on this book! I give this it five stars!
