Have you ever felt like you were cursed in love? Did you ever feel like love was too good to be true? Ever uttered the words, "Pinch me. I'm dreaming" before?
Lily's mother and grandmother tried to warn her. They tried to protect her from the curse. "Never marry a man unless he's short, bald, fat, stupid, and treats you badly." But Lily didn't listen. She married Gogo, a handsome pediatrician whom she loved. On their honeymoon, Lily is so peaceful and overjoyed that she can't believe this is reality. She asks Gogo to pinch her just to be sure this isn't a dream. The instant he pinches her, Lily is transported to a different dimension. She's instantly single, back in her old house, and Gogo is not her husband anymore. He isn't even a doctor in this alternate life. He's a thin, tired looking salesman unhappily married to a college sweetheart. This is a nightmare! This is the family curse taking hold. Lily scrambles to try and make everything right again.
Adena Halpern has quite the imagination. Her stories are fresh, unique, entertaining, and light fun reading. The characters are well developed and lovable. I found myself rooting for Lily and true love with Gogo. It was the perfect choice for lounging by the pool in the sunshine. And the cover is oh so adorable!
