What is the opposite of love? Hate? Indifference? Anger? This is the question Emily Haxby seeks to answer in the debut novel by Julie Buxbaum. Emily is a successful young attorney who works in a large law firm in Manhattan. She ends her seemingly happy relationship with her boyfriend just as he is about to propose. Emily realizes she must come to terms with personal issues before she can commit to anything long-term. Her issues include work on a lawsuit that tests her values, a creepy boss who can’t keep his hands to himself, her lovable Grandpa Jack’s Alzheimer’s Disease, her emotionally distant father, and the death of her mother when Emily was a teenager.
Harvard Law graduate Buxbaum has received a lot of attention in this debut novel. She signed a two-book deal with her publisher, so we’ll have more good books to look forward to. ~~ Enjoy ~~
