"An evocative new novel from the New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins. Beware the wrath of a woman scorned-she just might save the world. Lillie knew the empty nest would be hard when her son left for college, but she had no idea of the full extent to which her world would come crashing down-until her husband announced out of the blue that he was in love with another woman, and he would be leaving, too. Besides the fact that this announcement was a complete surprise (to say the least), what surprised her most was that she wasn't...sad. She was furious. What was she supposed to do now? She surely couldn't look for help from her mother, who had left the family on Cape Cod to live with her new wife when Lillie was still a little girl. Lillie's sister, Hannah, had abandoned her to live a more interesting life and wouldn't be any help now either. Her father was usually her rock, but recently, he'd betrayed her by taking Ben Harriman under his wing-the man who almost ruined her life in a car accident when she was in high school. Her dad had put the guy up in the family guesthouse, which was certainly no help to Lillie at all. And she sure as hell wasn't going to get any help from Melissa, her husband's gold-digging new wife (or her oddly lost teenage niece, Ophelia). So, who was going to help her? Actually, maybe all of them. And maybe she would save them, too"--
