Book review: The Divorce Party by Laura Dave (9780143115601)

This book gives “Meet the Parents” a new twist.

Gwyn Huntington has been married 35 years to the day and she’s having a divorce party… for herself.  Her husband Thomas has claimed he is found religion and wants to move on, but she knows the real truth.  What will Thomas do when she reveals her surprise?

Maggie MacKenzie is engaged to Nate Huntington and they are planning to scrape enough money together to open a restaurant.  As if that isn’t enough she is meeting her future in-laws at their divorce party.  She isn’t thrilled.  Even more surprising is that Nate has just told her that he is wealthy.  Unfortunately, Nate has another surprise in store.  Can she forgive and forget?  Can she trust him again?

Georgia is Nate’s very pregnant unwed sister and her wayward boyfriend, Denis, is a no-show at the party.  Will he be there to support Georgia, or will he continue to be the ne’er do well in Georgia’s parents’ eyes?

It is written in Gwyn and Maggie’s words which are full of anger, humor, regret and hope.  It is a good read for everyone and I read that Universal Studios has bought the movie rights.

Thanks to Laura Dave and FSB Associates for sharing her book with me to review.
