When Kennedy's husband of nearly a decade decides to leave her for his former lover, a surfer named Sunny no less, Kennedy is forced to move on and raise their children as a single mom.
Her surly teenager Maya is in desperate need of several bars of soap for her smart mouth and wants to meet her birth father; her youngest just wants everything back to normal; and her five-times married mother wants her to get her groove on and find a new man. Ex-husband Frank announces that he is going to quit his lucrative law practice to become a yoga instructor, and Kennedy is faced with having to move to a smaller place. A fixer upper has her salivating and her family and friends ready to run for the hills.
When she goes back to the Greenwich Village tavern she worked at prior to getting married, she hooks up with the lust of her life, bartender/owner Declan McGlynn. As they share yet another one night stand, both are feeling a bit more for each other, though neither is willing to admit it, but tentatively start a relationship. When Declan admits that there is someone else in his life, Kennedy gives him an ultimatum, and doesn't like his choice. When she is given a chance for reconciliation with Frank, will she take it?
Satran's debut is a slick and sexy novel about a women's journey to right the wrongs of her life in a path of self-discovery. She has peppered it with a flawed heroine, great secondary characters, and conversational dialogue that never seems forced.
