The Trouble With Lexie

Lexie James is a counselor at Ruxton, an elite prep school in Massachusetts. Lexie has spent her life overcoming obstacles caused by her bizarre mother and father, their financial struggles and general parental neglect. She made her way to college and grad school through hard work and perseverance. At 33 years old, Lexie loves her job and her fiancĂ© Peter, a laid back musician who adores her. Finally having all that she has ever dreamed of - Lexie could not be happier, until the day she meets Daniel Waite. Daniel is the handsome, debonair parent of one of her senior students. Suddenly Lexie questions her upcoming wedding, her sex life and the true meaning of love. Her confidante Amy, a southern bell that works as the school nurse, is her side kick helping her navigate this confusing time. This story is laugh out loud funny, touching and (most likely) completely possible, which is both funny and sad. Author Jessica Anya Blau writes with such straight forward wit and humor, her characters say all the things people think but never say out loud. I should have known after (LOVING!) her first novel, The Summer of Naked Swim Parties, that I would not be able to put this one down.  If you would like to be highly entertained during your last days of summer, this is for you!!
