From Goodreads:

A delicious, sharp novel about a woman who jets off to France after her perfect marriage collapses, putting the broken pieces of herself back together while rediscovering her own joie de vivrea lust for life, art, and steamy sex.

The worst birthday ever might just be the gift of a lifetime…

It’s Sophie Bloom’s forty-second birthday, and she’s ready for a night of celebration with Gabe, her longtime, devoted husband, and her two besties and their spouses. Dinner is served with a side of delicious gossip, including which North Grove residents were caught with their pants down on Ashley Madison after the secret on-line dating site for married and committed couples was hacked. Thirty-two million cheaters worldwide have been exposed…including Sophie’s “perfect” husband. To add insult to injury, she learns Gabe is the top cheater in their town.

Humiliated and direction…

What a fun topic!  It's no secret I LOVE to snack while reading. In fact, I remember coming home from school and having a snack while reading a book before starting my homework. Yep, huge nerd right here! Here are my favorites!
Drinks
1. Coffee
2. Wine
3. Pepsi  (don't judge me, I know soda is terrible for you, but...I drink it in moderation, ok?)

Food
1. Popcorn (probably my all time favorite snack)
2. Chips and Guacamole ( I LOVE making guac!!) 3. Potato chips
Not gonna lie, popcorn and a Pepsi is my ultimate FAVORITE reading snack. What are your favorite reading snacks?
