no.2 love the one your with

"A chance encounter with an old flame in Giffin's bittersweet, sometimes mawkish fourth novel causes Ellen Dempsey to consider anew what could have been. Shortly after marrying Andy, Ellen runs into Leo, her intense first love. Leo, a moody writer, has secretly preoccupied Ellen ever since he broke her heart, so after seeing him again, Ellen wonders if her perfect life is truly what she wants or simply what she was expected to want. This scenario is complicated by Ellen's past: the early death of her mother and subsequent disintegration of her family have left Ellen insecure and saddled with unresolved feelings of guilt. These feelings intensify when Andy's career takes the newlyweds from Ellen's beloved New York City to suburban Atlanta. As Ellen's feelings of inadequacy and resentment grow, her marriage begins to crumble. " from
Emily Giffin's 4th book "Love the One Your With" is a good read. Although I couldn't put it down, wanting to find out what happens to Ellen and Andy's marriage; the end seems to just end... I felt like I got through the whole book and was expecting more at the end.
I have enjoyed her other books: "Something Blue" and "Something Borrowed".
I recommend it for a light read.
