A sweet romantic comedy about rediscovering love long after your 'happily ever after'. Think 'You've Got Mail' with a couple that is already married.

Refreshing take on a marriage survey. Enjoyed reading.

Predictable, but in a thoroughly enjoyable and charming way! Great "light" read.

was predictable, but cute! Agreed that it would be a good book club choice.

I enjoyed reading this book, although, I have seen this plot premise in a variety of different formats, where the husband is either hoping to connect or is testing his relationship with his wife. Not everyone will like the format, but the questions are interesting and the format of the book is unique, with each chapter prefaced by the answers of the questions. Coupled with the real life issues that crop up, parent - child relationships, job losses, friendships strained and regained, for me, it was worth the read.
