~ Synopsis ~
In The Good Enough Husband, Sylvie Fox delivers a riveting story about a woman who refuses to let her past define her future.
For years, Hannah Morrison Keesling’s marriage to Michael was good enough. Then she wakes up one morning and it isn’t. Taking her puppy Cody along, Hannah drives north to put distance between herself and her past. Planning to go as far as her SUV will take her, she hast to stop on the Lost Coast when her dog gets sick. There she meets small town veterinarian Ben Cooper.
Ben is the man Hannah wishes she had met first. He’s perfect for her, but gun shy because he’s been lied to before and vows not to be betrayed again. Hannah leaves Michael and moves to Ben’s rural town to pursue a future with the man she knows is her soul mate. But Michael won’t let go so easily. Forced to make a decision between the man she chose and the man she loves, Hannah soon realizes that her choices will define everyone else’s consequences.

There are worse things in life than marrying your friend!
I honestly found myself resenting the title of the book, The Good Enough Husband. Because I was lucky enough to marry my best friend, I have a different sense of how this marriage thing should work. Now, about the book, not my personal feelings . . .
I found Sylvie Fox’s writing to be enjoyable. The idea of finding yourself caught up in the idea of marriage and family and living happily-ever-after is one that has been fostered by fairy tales for years. Hannah suddenly discovers that this isn’t the way her life is turning out. She isn’t in love with her husband and takes off to make a life on her own. Seems rather selfish? Shallow? Or maybe she’s finally learning what it is she wants out of her life and is ready to reach for it!
Enter Ben, and the type of connection Hannah hasn’t felt except once before in her life. Ben feels it, too. But she’s only going to be in town as long as it takes for her dog to get over his motion sickness. Ben has been hurt before and he isn’t willing to let it happen again.
Ms. Fox allowed my imagination to write the next chapter of the book, after the one she wrote. And in my mind, I see a modern day happily-ever-after! And I recommend you sit down and read “The Good Enough Husband” and see how it ends for you!

I write the kinds of books I love to read. The quirky characters in my romance novels experience passion, angst, and conflict, but always get their “happily ever after.” I live in Los Angeles with my husband, son, and a handful of rescued pets. When I’m not hanging out in Hollywood, I’m eating my way through Budapest.
