Review of a Girls Guide to Moving on by Debbie Macomber

Brief Summary

Nichole always thought she had the perfect life. A loving husband, a nice home and a beautiful son. However, in one instant her whole marriage feels like a fraud when her mother-in-law tells her that her husband Jake has been cheating on her and now has gotten a girl pregnant. Having trusted her mother in law Leanne and truly loving her as if she was her mother she confronts her husband and finds out that it is true. Rather than stay in the marriage and hope that it doesn't happen again she files for divorce from her husband and with her mother in law right beside her starts a new life with her son.

Leanne has only been with one man for most of her adult life so when she decides to divorce her cheating husband of 34 years she finds herself happy and excited. However, what she doesn't expect is to catch the eye of a handsome Ukrainian immigrant.

Will Leanne and Nichole be able to move on with their lives or will the past continue to inhibit them from experiencing the future.

My Review:

I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This was not my first Debbie Macomber book but it was the first one that I have read in this series. I am not usually a huge fan of books that tackle the issue of infidelity, however, I think the author did a great job of tackling it and its affects on the family.

Debbie does a great job of really developing the main two characters and the supporting characters. In addition, I think that the setting she chose fit very well. One aspect of the book that I think Debbie did a great job of digging more into was the relationship between Nichole's son and her new love and her ex. It was very interesting to see how she handled the realities of divorce.

I think of the best parts in the books was actually towards the end of the book. I won't go into what occurred so that I don't spoil the book for any readers. I think that she really made the story become full circle.

I think this is a great book and am very interested to read the first book in this series.
