For Gwen Merchant, love has always been doled out in little packets--from her father, who buried himself in work after her mother's death, and from her husband, Peter, who's always been respectable and safe. But when an old college boyfriend, the irrepressible Elliot Hull, invites himself back into Gwen's life with a surprising proposition, she suddenly starts questioning everything she's ever expected from love.

Interesting premise. Gwen acts as Ethan's pretend wife to assuage his dying Mothers's fear that he live his life alone. But the story is far more complex. Asher has a way of suddenly grabbing you with a profound truth, and you stop to wonder, in this seemingly simple summer read, how she sneaks the very core of life into it. Good as a diversion read, but even better as you unravel her insights.
