The First Husband

The First Husband by Laura Dave

About The Book:
A savvy, page-turning novel about a woman torn between her husband and the man she thought she'd marry. Annie Adams is days away from her thirty-second birthday and thinks she has finally found some happiness. She visits the world's most interesting places for her syndicated travel column and she's happily cohabiting with her movie director boyfriend Nick in Los Angeles. But when Nick comes home from a meeting with his therapist (aka "futures counselor") and announces that he's taking a break from their relationship so he can pursue a woman from his past, the place Annie had come to call home is shattered. Reeling, Annie stumbles into her neighborhood bar and finds Griffin - a grounded, charming chef who seems to be everything Annie didn't know she was looking for. Within three months, Griffin is Annie's husband and Annie finds herself trying to restart her life in rural Massachusetts.

My Thoughts:
I can't quite place why, but I was so engrossed in this book, that I finished it one sitting. Right from the get-go you feel connected to Annie. The author does not make the relationships in this book cookie cutter or simple, as in reality, nothing is. It is a very absorbing story line, and thoroughly enjoyable!
