Well I liked the other Birstein book that I read, but I did not care for this one. I didn't even get through the first 70 pages of it. In "Summer Situations" we are introduced to two couples and their three children who are spending a month in a rented house on the Cape. The woman telling the story is debating whether or not to have an affair with the husband of the other woman. Back and forth she goes, for pages... and I finally got bored and put it down. Today I still wasn't interested so back to the library it went. I guess straight on romances aren't really my thing or something. It gets decent reviews on Amazon though so I'm sure it's not a bad book. It's just not my kind of thing.
