The Widow’s Guide To Sex And Dating was written with the dry witty humor I’ve come to love. The bizarre and tragic accident that crushed Claire’s husband to death set the tone for the book: humorous yet serious, and was similar to the style of books like The 100 Year Old Man. Recently widowed Claire provided a perspective on the uncharted territory of sex and dating after death. This was a grown up chic lit comedy perfect for a summer day.
I loved the life rules embedded in the text, each one more clever than the last! I enjoyed following Claire as she attempted to live life while dispelling the stigma of being a widow. Who knew having a relationship after your spouse died would be so hard! Just when I thought I had a handle in the story, something unexpected popped up. Claire’s dating disasters were funny, especially when her soon to be lover donned her dead husband’s robe. Radziwill included great one line zingers throughout the story, and I found my self smiling while I followed Claire on her journey to reclaim her life and find love.
Overall, this was a cute and clever book I’m glad I read.
