Yup. Great book. did not like the movie, but that's usually the case for me!

Enjoy, I devoured it!

This was a good, easy vacation book. I watched the movie but had to fast forward the sex scene....hit too close to home even though her husband was an a hole it was still an affair. The book didn't bother me though.

Just adding the note for those that may still be triggery, there is infidelity that plays a big part in the story.

Riding Lessons, by the same author is also excellent-laugh out loud funny in spots!

Riding Lessons is good, Water for Elephants is good.

If you want a PHENOMENAL series, get The Outlander (by Diana Gabaldon). That's the first one of the series and it is just unreal.
