The bestselling author of Must Love Dogs and Life's a Beach takes listeners on a rollicking getaway without leaving the comfort of home.
Jill Murray is content living a man-free existence. She's got Anastasia, her ten-year-old daughter, and a sweet little bungalow to call home. Life as a cultural coach didn't turn out quite the way she planned, but between answering phones for Great Girlfriend Getaways and teaching Lunch Around the World classes, the dust in Jill's life is starting to settle. Then her ex-husband comes back.
They say that every seven years you become a completely new person, and Jill has long ago stopped wishing her deadbeat husband would return. Now she has to face the fact there's simply no way she can be a good mom without letting him back into their daughter's life. But why can't she seem to hold herself together around him? And then there's Billy, the free-spirited, bike-riding entrepreneur who hires Jill as a consultant. When their business relationship seems destined for something more, Jill's no-boys-allowed life is suddenly anything but.
It takes a Costa Rican getaway to help Jill make her choice—-between the woman she is and the woman she wants to be. It's a wild ride, sure to thrill Claire Cook's many fans, complete with laughter, revelations, and one heckuva big tarantula.
