When I started this book, I thought it would be another rich woman, seemingly perfect life, jerk of a husband kind of book. While it starts that way, the ending is good, and there is definitely food for thought. The message was a good one. A tragedy for a little boy changes the lives of people around him, and two women learn a lot about themselves in the process. ( )

This book came out and the perfect time- on my last day of graduate school and I could not wait to get home and start Giffin's latest and she did not disappoint. While I'm still partial to Something borrowed/Blue and her last books set in Atlanta, this book has earned a place on my permanent shelf.
The story of an Affair from both sides is both riveting and elicits empathy and understanding about just how simple and yet heartbreaking infidelity is to all people involved. I was somewhat surprised by the ending and I won't spoil it, but overall this is an enjoyable read especially for fans of Giffin. ( )

I enjoyed this on audio (probably more than if I'd read it in print) because Cynthia Nixon (Miranda on Sex & the City)does an excellent job reading it. ( )

What a roller coaster ride. I thought this novel was well written but it really lacked depth. I wanted to know these characters but instead of really revealing the main character's layers Giffin introduced many throw away characters, in what appears to be an attempt to cover up the lack of real development. The story seems to be about forgiveness, but I left not knowing how Tessa or Valerie could ever forgive just that somehow they did.

The writing style kind of irritated me. Tessa's chapters are in first person and Valerie's are in third. Which I guess makes sense, since Valerie is the third person in the relationship. However, it really annoyed me almost to the point that I didn't want to keep reading.

I wouldn't read it again, but if you're bored and can't find anything else to read, go for it. ( )

I really enjoyed "Heart of the Matter" by Emily Giffin. It was a tough story line overall, but so well written with engaging characters. I liked that she included Dex and Rachel from the "Something Borrowed" series as sub characters. I found myself rooting for both sides throughout the story and was torn with how I wanted to see it end right up to the last page. Found myself thinking about this book days after I finished. Experienced this book via Audio book - the narration really added an extra element. If you enjoy thought provoking story lines, you should pick up this book and others from this great author.
Happy Reading...enjoy! ( )
