Living With No Regrets Is Harder Than It Seems

Finley isn’t exactly sure when her life began to feel unfamiliar. She suspects the transformation started long before she caught her husband and fellow garden club member doing the white-trash-two-step on her new Bernhardt sofa. Now free from the shackles of a loveless marriage, and with her children off to college, she’s finally able to go searching for the missing pieces of her heart.

Finley’s best friend, Cathyanne, is already working hard to ensure that Finley finds true love this time around. But when Finley is unwittingly tossed into the arms of two men—their sexy trainer and her neighbor, a popular country star—Cathyanne fears finding the right guy will be more complicated than she ever could have imagined.

For Finley, building a new life feels as impossible as flying a paper airplane to the moon. But maybe, just maybe, with the right help, she will find her whole heart—even if it’s in the very last place she thinks to look.

Finley's life is falling apart at the seams. After deciding to divorce her philandering husband, Finley finds herself confronting parts of her life that she didn't want to even think about. For example, she confronts one of her husband's mistresses...in front of the entire Garden Club. Among Finley's wealthy circles it's all pretty scandalous, so Finley's mom insists that Finley attend a divorce support group. As Finley slowly works to regain her life, she finds herself caught up in some interesting situations. A much younger boyfriend, a growing attraction to her longtime neighbor, and a meddling best friend are just the start. Finley is going to truly have to find herself before she can truly come to terms with her life.

I found this book to be a written from a very interesting perspective. Most romances tend to be written about younger people who have their whole lives ahead of them. Finley, on the other hand, had been married for 20 years. She's raised two children to adulthood. She had far more in her life to sort through. This made for some very interesting outlooks and really made me more intrigued. For Finley, this was more than just the end of a marriage. This was the end of her life as she had known it for a long time. To start over was something she had never imagined. It also allowed her to move past her preconceived notions about love and marriage. I especially enjoyed that she learned to take a very fair view of her life and what had gone wrong and right. In the end no one person was to blame for anything that had gone on.

Of course, what would a romance be without dashing men, and this book managed to have several. I knew who I was cheering for from the beginning, and luckily I came out on top, so the ending was awesome for me. This book wasn't all sunshine and rainbows though. There are some very serious topics that are dealt with. One in particular involved Finley's best friend Cathyanne. Finley and Cathyanne had ups and downs like any true friends, but in the end they were just that- true friends. Overall I found this book to be a great read. I didn't want to stop reading once I started. I'm not sure I would consider this a "fun" read because it dealt with some heavy stuff, but it had it's share of fluff as well. People who enjoy romance with some substance should check this one out.
