A funny look at a romance writers life after her husband leaves her for another woman.
Successful romance writer Mona Berman has to figure out what to do with her life after her husband walks out. Rethinking her new book is the easy part - her heroine finds the best part of her life after getting dumped. But with teen daughters giving her dating advice and her sexy plumber sending her imagination into overdrive, can Mona write her own happy ending? A smart romantic comedy.
April, in general, is not a good month for me. Here in northern New Jersey, April can either be awash with daffodils or buried under a foot of snow, and waiting to see which way it will go kills me. I hate the April version of winter –some days, that nip of spring teases the air and gets you thinking about warm sunshine, but mostly it’s just cold enough to be miserable. The snow turns black and ugly in about six minutes, and the salt used on the roads gets in between the pads of my dog’s feet. Ever try washing the feet of a 60-pound lump of wet fur? Whimpering, quivering wet fur? No fun at all.
On the flip side, what if it does get warm and sunny right away? That whole process of morphing out of winter woolies and sweaters and scarves that successfully hid my entire body for four months and getting into clothes that not only show skin, but also rolls, pouches, wrinkled knees – it’s excruciating.
Then, of course, there’s the whole tax thing.
Let’s not even discuss my allergies.
So it stands to reason that any given April day will not be a particularly good one. But the day my husband Brian told me that he was leaving me for somebody 15 years younger and 30 pounds lighter was the worst.
