Project: Happily Ever After Review & *Giveaway*

Project: Happily Ever After by Alisa Bowman

About The Book:
What do you do when your marriage is so unhappy that you begin to fantasize about your husband’s funeral? That’s how bad it got for Alisa Bowman. . . So she launched a last-ditch effort to save her marriage. Project: Happily Ever After is her fearlessly honest and humorous account of how she went from being a “divorce daydreamer” to renewing her wedding vows - and all of the steps in between. From bikini waxes to erotica, romance instruction manuals to second honeymoons, the silent treatment to power struggles, she goes where many marriage-improvement gurus have feared to tread. Equal parts funny, poignant, and most importantly, useful, Bowman’s story will give other miserably-married folks courage and hope. And in addition to telling her own story, she packs straightforward prescriptive guidance, including a “10-Step Marital Improvement Guide.” Readers will laugh. They’ll cry. And they can start on the road toward their own happy ending!

My Thoughts:
This is a great book. I'm sure married couples who have been together awhile all have wondered "What would it be like to be single again?" I know I have. But I got over it, and so did Alisa Bowman. Her story could be my story. It is a good read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book is not a marriage manual or a self-help book, it is a story, it is one woman's true life story, and in her telling it, it just may help you.
