Idgie Says:
Poor Sarah - she spends all of her energy and emotion mothering her siblings and father.  To the extent that her newly found love is suffering.  The woman needs to man up and think about herself for a change.  But..........that's just my opinion.  :)  Her brother is in a bind and she's spending her time nurturing him and ignoring John Cusack..... um, I mean John Anderson.   (How could anyone ignore John Cusack?) No matter how strong a connection, a 6 month relationship isn't going to last if it's suddenly ignored all the time.  

Will Sarah "snap out of it" and save her own relationship before it's gone?  Also, given the first couple of chapters, should Sarah really have any pets of her own...... (read and you'll see what I mean by that!)  Witty and sensitive at the same time, this is a perfect book to settle down with and escape your world for a while.  Go boss Sarah around instead.

Book Description:
Life after divorce for Sarah Hurlihy used to consist of juggling her job as a preschool teacher with the demands of her interfering family. But after a rocky start, Sarah and John Anderson have shared six months of dating bliss. Now their relationship is basically on hold because Sarah's brother, Michael, and his dog, Mother Teresa, are staying with her. And John's new puppy, Horatio, hates Sarah. With a passion.

Michael hopes absence will, in fact, make his wife Phoebe's heart grow fonder. Sarah hopes she can do her sisterly duty and send Michael on his merry way before she ends up single again herself.  John hopes Sarah and his puppy can work things out before it's too late. Sarah's bossy big sister, Carol, hopes both Michael and their father will start dating again.

When Phoebe packs up their daughters and heads home to Savannah, Georgia, Michael follows her from Marshbury, Massachusetts, and the Hurlihy clan tags along for reinforcement. Including Dad, who has finally upgraded his Smith Corona to a laptop and already has a date with a woman named Sugar Butt.
