Review: One of the best follow up books I have read so far that is still able to live up to the first book. The book made me fall in love with Simon and Caroline all over again. Even though there was no sweater sniffing this time, there was still a lot of humor that makes you laugh till you cry your eyes out. There is also more of a conflict for the plot to continue and not be all happy, which is a good thing because it’s nice to Simon and Caroline fight. Also when Caroline fights as you know, she comes up with random things that make complete sense and that oh so funny. Clive also gets more of an adventure this time around, and ends up a little like Simon was at first. God, I love that cat! We also get to faces from the past book and how everyone is doing since then, and we get to read about how a slip nip is done the right way. There are lots more fights in the group which are mostly funny and then we get to see Caroline in action at work. Though I’m not totally looking forward to the next book because it will not be Simon and Caroline’s story, I have hope that it will be great too!

Summary: Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much travelling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?
