Summary

Fourteen-years of marriage, two-children - and Dan and Lauren were now on the rocks.

Date night, his mother-in-law suggested. Only problem was Dan would have to wing it, as he didn’t have a clue how to date his wife.

He wanted to ignite the spark back into their marriage; however, Lauren wasn’t as keen.

Lauren was devastated and confused by the sudden interest Dan was now showing her. Was he playing away from home? That would certainly account for the weird hours he’d been keeping at work.

Was Dan’s guilty conscience the reason he was now trying to get her into bed at every opportunity? Or was he just toying with her?

A new day was coming. Hopefully, Dan was ready for her. Because by the end of the week, her marriage would either be back on track or over and heading for the divorce courts.

Contains profanity, adult content, and also covers loss.

Emotional rollercoaster of a read

This book isn't my typical read but I'm glad i listened to it. I can imagine many couples could relate in some way to this story and that is what is so great about it, it feels like you are listening to one woman's diary. It is my first book by this author, my first audio book and i would completely recommend. Loved the narrator, he did an amazing job and made me stop and listen, made me laugh in places and feel like i was listening to a friend tell a story.

Brilliant

This book is completely heart wrenching, funny and embarrassing (for the characters). I sat in my living room listening with a smile, a laugh and a cry. A very good read, with very good characters and an even better story line.

Lauren and Dan, wow!

This story was a great listen. John York did a great job of bringing Lauren and Dan’s story to life. Great, heartwarming story about a married couple who’ve lost themselves.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful

This was a beautifully written story that pulled me in. So relatable to real life tragedies that some couples experience. It’s a story of reconnecting and coming out stronger from the experiences after. A story of love and Family. I loved Dan, and I loved the love he had for Lauren, Rudy and Darcy. It was an emotional read for me.
This story was written by Laurie an Author who had included snippets of her relationship with Dane and there personal connection and chemistry. So well written. I loved John Yates as the narrator, he really brought the story to life for me. I haven’t read Blue Christmas but will have to so I can get the whole story.
