From the author of Bond Girl and Lost Along the Way, comes a fiercely funny, insightful story of marriage, family, and the crooked path to figuring out who we really are. Claire thought she had everything a woman was supposed to want--a loving husband, a newborn son, a beautiful home in the suburbs. Then she walks in on her husband canoodling with their realtor in their newly renovated kitchen, and in an instant, her perfect life comes crashing down.   With her marriage heading for divorce, Claire knows it's time to stop feeling sorry for herself. But how can she move on when she's still stuck in the orbit of her husband's world? For starters, she can get rid of her soon-to-be ex's possessions--including his prized, gigantic foosball table--by dumping them onto the curb...until complaints from the neighbors get the police involved. Now Claire is busy dodging the mean mommies at story hour and hiding from her ex-husband's girlfriend in the grocery store. But as Claire soon learns, suburbia still has a few surprises in store for her--surprises that will make her question her choices from the past, send her down an unexpected road to self-discovery, and maybe even lead to new love. Desperate for a positive outlet to channel her frustrations, she turns to girlfriends Lissy and Antonia for help. Together they join forces to rebrand Lissy's local stationery store and turn it into a thriving business. But as Claire soon learns, suburbia still has a few surprises in store for her--surprises that will make her question her choices from the past, send her down an unexpected road to self-discovery, and maybe even new love. Featuring a second coming-of-age story, Regrets Only deftly explores the subtle nuances of marriage, family, friendship, and what it means to be a woman today, while delighting readers as its unforgettable heroine acts on impulses we've all been guilty of having.… (mere)

Regrets Only by Erin Duffy is a complicated but inspiring story about a woman who has everything she's ever wanted and then loses it. It's a story of love gone wrong, friendship, and forgiveness. It's an emotional roller coaster from start to finish that left me a little dizzy at times.

Claire was blissfully happy. She has an amazing husband and beautiful baby boy. Just when she thinks life can't get any sweeter, her husband surprises her with a spa weekend to recharge her batteries. Halfway there she discovers she's forgotten her wallet, turns around, and heads back home. That's when she discovers her husband of two years has been having an affair with his realtor/ex-girlfriend. And in that moment, Claire's world shatters.

My heart broke for Claire. She left her job, moved to a new state, made her husband and family her whole life, to be betrayed in such a brutal way. And now, because of her son, she can't move back home without the father's permission, which he won't give. She's taken time off from her career to care for her family, and once you do that, it's hard to get back in to. She has to start over, rebuilding her life one block at a time with all these obstacles standing in her way.

Claire's emotions are all over the place in this book. Her stream of consciousness seemed spot-on! Though there were times I thought Claire was a little unhinged. It's lucky Duffy gave Claire a wonderful BFF, Antonia. Antonia seems to be Claire's voice of reason when she's close to the edge. Claire also finds friendship in Lissy, a younger woman who's recently lost her mother. Claire slowly starts to build her support system to get through this awful experience.

I listened to the audiobook of Regrets Only narrated by Nan McNamara. She did an amazing job. She captured the many emotions of Claire, and did a wonderful job with the other characters. Reading the book is good, but the audio brings out so much more. It breathes so much more emotion into the story.

Erin Duffy has written a thought-provoking novel that gives you all the feels. Regrets Only is a complicated book. There are some hilarious moments in this book, some 'YES!' moments, and some heartbreaking moments. I'm not sure I would recommend it to somebody who's currently going through a divorce. It definitely makes you think about how fragile relationships are and how much can change in an instance.

The book started out fine. I like that Claire was not in denial of the fact that she was going through a divorce. Yet, there really wasn't anything endearing enough about Claire, the rest of the characters, or the storyline that could keep my focus. After several chapters into the book, my interest had wavered. I tried to find it again but I couldn't find it. It was apparent when I found myself more going through the motions of reading and not remembering a word that I just read or the fact that I was skimming the book. After a while, I put the book down with "no regrets". Maybe someone else will be able to connect with the characters and sorry better than I could. ( )
