A fresh and bittersweet story of love and family from National Book Award finalist Deb Caletti.

Cricket's on a self-imposed break from her longtime boyfriend - but she's picked a bad week to sort out her love life. For one thing, her mother's romance is taking center stage: After jilting two previous fiancÉs, her mom is finally marrying Dan Jax, whom Cricket loves. But as wedding attendees arrive for a week of festivities at a guesthouse whose hippie owners have a sweet, sexy son - Ash - complications arise:

Cricket's future stepsisters make it clear they're not happy about the marriage. An old friend decides this is the week to declare his love for Cricket. Grandpa chooses to reveal a big secret at a family gathering. Dan's ex-wife shows up. And even the dogs - Cricket's old, ill Jupiter and Dan's young, lively Cruiser - seem to be declaring war.

While Cricket fears that Dan is in danger of becoming ditched husband-to-be number three, she's also alarmed by her own desires. Because even though her boyfriend looms large in her mind, Ash is right in front of her....
