Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

The women in this book want passion, romance, stability, worldly goods and middle-class respectability. The problem, though, is that they want these things from their men. So when Sylvie finds out that her husband, Bob, is fooling around, she devises an unorthodox way to get him back, or, at least, let him go with dignity. Cristine McMurdo-Wallis uses a wry, satiric voice to negotiate the frantic goings-on and succeeds in narrating a credibility-straining bit of fluff. But Wallis makes it entertaining fluff because her tongue is firmly in her cheek. Her husky voice gives her characters quirky, fun personalities. She also gets Goldsmith's writing rhythm down and keeps the story moving at a brisk pace. R.I.G. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
