Alex thought she had married the man of her dreams: successful, gorgeous, and delighted by her small-town charm. When he walks out six months later, proclaiming to have 'found himself' (with the help of a stunning yoga teacher), she 'finds herself' alone in an unfamiliar city, vengefully drinking through his prized wine collection, living on takeout, and refusing to answer the door. When this fails to cure her broken heart and bruised ego, she reluctantly allows her new friends to intervene. Slowly, Alex learns to define success on her own terms; she discovers the secret to love in all its forms, and the perfect flying crow pose, one breath at a time.

This was so darn cute. As someone who practices yoga, I really enjoyed this tie in to the storyline. I thought the author wrote a light,funny and fresh tale. The book was a fast read and a very nice break from some of the “heavier” books I have read recently.
This is a debut for Ms. Bishop and I have to tell you, it reads as if written by a seasoned novelist. Good flow and nicely entertaining. Congratulations to the author for a job well done and I will be looking forward to future stories from her.
My thanks to Diversion Books and Netgalley for allowing ne to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
