"An effortless page-turner, almost a movie treatment more than a novel...intelligent commercial fiction." (The Wall Street Journal)

After five years of marriage, Cass Coyne has lost some of her boundless confidence. Her husband sees their ups and downs as normal challenges in a healthy relationship, but Cass lies awake at night wondering what you do when you need a break from your marriage.

It comes as a shock to Jonathan when Cass persuades him to try a marital "intermission": a six-month separation during which they'll decide if the comfortable life they've built together is still the one they both want. Six months apart from their beloved dog is a different story, so they agree to meet once a month for a custody exchange. Time apart on opposite coasts makes the Coynes realize their problems may lie deeper than sweaty gym socks left on the bed and an empty container of milk put back in the fridge. Can a marriage experiment go too far for two people who once thought they had it all figured out?

Ok

I pushed through this book but I found it wasn’t nearly as good as The Floating Feldmans & The Last Summer at the Golden Hotel. Save your credits. These characters are not likable. I kept having to back up & restart because my mind just wandered away from the story.

Gut wrenchingly good...

I was rooting for one side and then the other, frustrated at the events in the story. It was worth finishing however.

Great writing but terrible characters

I really liked the story, it was interesting and made me want to keep listening. Did not care for the main female character but it did not take away from the story.

what a shitty book

this book was recommended to me and I wish it wasnt, this was such a shitty book, no twist no turns just 13 hours about a cheating couple who get back together. THIS BOOK IS TERRIBLE!
