The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating

This book explains a great deal about how special writing is to her and how she reveres writers and the product. Although I agreed with her basic position regarding this whole dating on the show, this book just reinforced for me, how she feels. Reading this book is a completely different experience than reading “What Remains”, as it should be.

I recommend it. I like the way Carole remains and I enjoyed her first attempt at fiction. It is my show that she continues to write dating because I’m really looking forward to reading her next book.
