Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin

If you like Emily Giffin's work you need to read this book!  If you have not read anything by her do not start with this book.  I would suggest starting with something borrowed, something blue or love the one your with!  I give this book 3 stars because it is well written and formatted. It was easy to read and kept your attention. I did not give it 5 stars because the book angered me. The book is about this hot shot doctor who you think is a wholesome decent guy, until he meets a patients mother on the night of his wedding anniversary and slowly starts down the road to the affair. There is no hiding that the affair will happen. Dr. Nick Russo basically abandons his family to spend time with his mistress and her son. His wife who is suspicious of an affair keeps trying to believe its not true, but knows the truth. Finally all is out in the open and she does what she should. I agree with the ending of the book, and I really enjoyed the way the book read, but I would not be able to re-read this book and it left me feeling sad and depressed. I don't like to feel that way when I finish a book, even if the subject matter is hard or sad. For some reason this one hung around and stuck with me.
