What happens when your Prince Charming turns out not to be so charming after all? A sizzling, highly entertaining look at romantic relationships after we say "I do". Alice knows she should be happy. A charming twenty-eight-year-old with a successful catering business, she's always dreamed of a rose-covered cottage in the English countryside, filled with children and animals and home-cooked meals. Her favorite attire is comfy jeans, her best manicure features garden dirt under the nails. But when her teenage crush--the wealthy, dashing man-about-town Joe Chambers--wants to make her his bride, Alice is more than willing to play Cinderella to Joe's prince. Never mind that he wants her to change--a diet, ice-blond highlights, stilettos, snooty gallery openings--and that he's allergic to nature and kids. She tells herself she's happy to sacrifice for love, and besides, with Joe's stunning good looks and high-profile career at a top financial firm, every woman in London wants to be in her shoes. But that's just the problem. Despite Alice's efforts to be the perfect wife, Joe soon reveals a penchant for being hopelessly unfaithful. When a notorious indiscretion with a female colleague forces Joe to transfer to New York, Alice's life turns upside down. As Joe continues to sneak around, and her best friend's beau offers a tempting glimpse of what real love could be like, Alice must decide how much Cinderella she can take before her deepest desires win out--and if she can summon up the courage to find real happiness on her own. Delicious, witty, and packed with sparkling sex appeal. An unputdownable read that will have you rooting out loud for its endearing heroine. Proves that the search for true love doesn't always end when someone dons a veil, and offers a lively, refreshing take on modern marriage.… (altro)

Alice had a schoolgirl crush on Joe. When she runs into him years later he's still gorgeous, rich, charming. And he's ready to settle down - with Alice! She can hardly believe her luck. And starting with the wedding, she changes every single thing about herself to be what Joe wants.

This was an excellent read; intelligent chick-lit. The characters were real and believable. Even the lying, philandering husband and the women willing to cheat with a married man are portrayed with a degree of sympathy, not as cardboard villains but as flawed humans with problems of their own.

I saw where the story was going pretty early on, but it was still a treat to follow the fates of all of these people and especially Alice's rediscovery of her true self. I would eagerly read more by this author. ( )

***SPOILER****
I was very disappointed. The book description describes a book about a woman overcoming a cheating husband. The majority of the book seemed to be about her husband cheating....versus the woman starting a new life.

Well Thanks again. Read this 2 days ago and yes I liked it. An easy read. Lately most of my reads were quite depressing books so I am glad I had this one on my shelf to.

A warm typical chick litty book. thanks for sharing.

ETA: This is the same book as To Have and to Hold.
I had that one on my wish list and discovered this. I don't like when they do that.

This book was an easy and enjoyable read, but really nothing special. Alice was so lame and such a loser, that you had a hard time feeling bad for her. I like Jane Green, but this was not one of her better books. ( )

I've always really like everything else I've read by Jane Green. However, this book just left me cold. It seemed like it just went on forever, going over the same things over and over, how lonely Alice was, what a cad, jerk, philanderer Joe was. I thought the book would never end. I just wanted to shout at Alice "wake up! He's cheating, can't you see that!!" ( )
