Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

Heart of the MatterHeart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tessa has a successful life with her two children and her pediatric plastic surgeon husband, Nick. She just never feels like it's enough though! She is jealous of her brother Dex and sister-in-law Rachel's relationship and she feels that hers will never measure up.

Valerie is a single mom to adorable Charlie. Valerie's law experience does not prepare her for the accident that will threaten a friendship.

Nick and Tessa should be out happily celebrating another anniversary together. His cell phone rings and there is an emergency at the hospital. Perfect timing?

This book focuses on yet another scandal in the love lives of the characters. Keeping to true Emily Giffin form, characters become tangled up in webs of lies and infidelity. This is a quick read and one that can be enjoyed after a long week of work!

The characters will leave the reader with all different emotions. My favorite character in this book is Charlie. He seems to be the only level-headed person in the whole book! It's amazing the pull a child can have on another person and the way they make us put our lives in perspective!

  1. The story is not new, but anyone who is married or thinking about getting marriage someday will feel related. We are all worried about that day when good things fall apart.
