Publisher's Summary

Just when she's finally figured out how to manage on her own, Jill Murray's ex-husband, Seth, is back - crashing into the man-free existence Jill and her 10-year-old daughter, Anastasia, have built so carefully. Jill's life just hasn't turned out quite the way she'd planned. By now, she'd hoped to be jetting around the world as a high-end cultural coach. Instead, she's answering phones for a local travel agency and teaching cooking classes at the community center. 

Enter free-spirited entrepreneur Billy who hires Jill as a consultant for an upcoming business trip. Suddenly, her no-boys-allowed life is anything but. They say that every seven years you become a completely new person, but Jill isn't sure she's ready to make the leap. It takes a Costa Rican getaway to help her make a choice - not so much between the two men in her life, but between the woman she is and the woman she wants to be.

Too neurotic to enjoy

I get that her life hasn't been easy, but she certainly goes out of her way to make it harder on herself by way overthinking everything. The inside of her brain (which comprises most of the story) is exhausting. Not an enjoyable listen.

Ending was rushed

I liked most of the book until the trip to Costa Rica. It got so detailed on the trip to Costa Rica I was really bored and felt like skipping ahead. The ending left so many questions I felt like this was a series.

That was soooooo depressing

The narration was fine. The characters were okay, actually some were very good. But the story itself was so depressing from the very beginning. I listened to the whole thing because I thought it would get better. Wrong. Even the last couple of chapters weren't much better. Good thing it was free.

Too mundane

Too much unnecessary detail. Too much inner dialog and rambling from the main character.

Enjoyable

light hearted and somewhat educational
a nice light break from my normal psychological thrillers.

Quick and enjoyable read / listen

I really enjoyed this book. It had a great plot. It was colorful with humor and just enough romance. I cared about the characters. I recommend it.

Easy Read

This was a quick & easy read. Very informative on different cultures & their food. Character was easy to like but she got on my nerves a little bit her making a daughter her whole life.
