Review: BETTER OFF DIVORCED by Marianne Hansen

Grace Harper wasn’t happy that she’d been divorced. But one man’s loss is another man’s gain. Now she was engaged to the most romantic and charming man in the world. Having to juggle a teaching career, motherhood, and a pending wedding was a lot, but she’d take it all in stride as long as she had the love of her life by her side.

Even though she managed to get over her ex-husband’s affair, Grace couldn’t help smiling when she finds out the same woman he cheated with was now leaving him for someone else. Still, it makes her wonder if her “perfect fiancé” could ever repeat the same infidelity.  

This is the witty and endearing story of a woman contending with a too-perfect fiancé, a narcissistic ex-husband, and three rowdy teenage sons. With all this male testosterone surrounding her, was it any wonder why she was BETTER OFF DIVORCED?

I thought this was a pretty good story with a strong lead character that most could relate to. There were a few lagging areas and I think that Grace questioned things a bit too often. Story focuses more on family drama and unresolved issues. It’s not as funny as I would’ve liked. But still it’s a decent read.

My rating: 3 stars
