Review by Library Journal (2011-02-01)

Sandy Portman, a wealthy New Yorker who attracts women like bees to flowers, marries naive and optimistic Emily, a young editor. Sandy becomes bored with Emily, but he is killed while crossing the street on his way to ask her for a divorce. He then returns miraculously as an ugly mutt, Einstein, to try to find his way to redemption. There is humor here, but there is also sadness and regret.

Of course there is a romance, but it is secondary to the character study that takes place. Sandy as Einstein must understand himself and become a "true man", while Emily must find the real Emily under the false self she thought she should be.

Verdict: Transcending her previous romance novels (The Ex-Debutante; The Devil in the Junior League), Lee's latest work is about transformation and the attempt to really understand oneself. You can laugh, cry, and believe in second chances. Recommend to those who enjoy Elizabeth Berg or Kristin Hannah.
