Skipping a Beat
by Sarah Pekkanen
Genre: Women's Fiction
Review: What if your husband had a heart attack and woke up acting like a different person? Could an already crumbling marriage survive? Julia must decide if she still loves her husband Michael. The details of their complex marriage are revealed. Throughout the book, details of their love story are slowly revealed, which shows how they fell in love in high school, college, and the early years building their career. The book takes several unexpected turns that kept me reading and relating to the main character, Julia. Her relationship with her best friend Isabelle provided funny and realistic dialogue.
Song to Read By: "Settle Down" by Kimbra (an ironic choice)
