London Is the Best City in America - Laura Dave
I was so sure that I'd love Laura Dave's most recent novel, The First Husband, that while just one day into reading it, I happened to stumble across this book, London is the Best City in America (a title which thoroughly, albeit momentarily, confused my son) on sale in my local library for .50¢. That was just too good a deal to pass up, and while I did not end up loving TFH, I still decided to give this one a go, and I'm so glad I did!

Ms. Dave did such a wonderful job of capturing the complexities of relationships, that the word entanglements could almost be synonymous. She skillfully shows how we do hurtful things, not intentionally, but sometimes by default when we refuse to take a decisive action. Just like Emmy and Josh in the novel, I think for the most part people don't intend to be mean spirited, it just sort of happens that way.
