    For all the enjoyment I got out of the first book in the series, I was looking forward to this second installment Wow, talk about taking the series in a very different direction I would describe the first book as light, quirky, fun, silly, and relate able in a goofy way I would describe this book as sad, depressing, and filled with heartache My main problem with this book is the base assumption of the author Namely 1 All unhappy men will cheat if given the chance2 All marital problems For all the enjoyment I got out of the first book in the series, I was looking forward to this second installment Wow, talk about taking the series in a very different direction I would describe the first book as light, quirky, fun, silly, and relate able in a goofy way I would describe this book as sad, depressing, and filled with heartache My main problem with this book is the base assumption of the author Namely 1 All unhappy men will cheat if given the chance2 All marital problems are because the wife isn t doing right by her man It is her duty to keep her husband happy If he isn t happy, she is failing him and the marriage.3 With 1 2 being true, when a man cheats, it is his wifes fault If she was a better wife, he wouldn t have done it.Several characters in the story are involved in a cheating plot line and all of them have the same moral see 1, 2 and 3 above The first half of the book describes the slow process of a marriage decading It was totally depressing and tedious The second half picks up a bit, mostly because the two main characters Jack and Ave are apart so the reader can t be slowly killed by hearing how things are not working for them There is a happy ending for them which is why it got a 2 stars instead of a 1 star , but the ending was only happy because Ave pretty much realized that ALL their problems were completely her fault and she would be better Some women may feel empowered by the story because of the concept that marital happiness is completely controlled by the wife alone, but I was pretty offended by that I am pretty sure my husband can make his own choices beyond simply reacting to mine Overall a total disappointment Finished the book mostly out of respect for the first I checked out book 3 in the series at the same time as book 2, but I am not sure if I will give it a chance The reviews on Goodreads seem to indicate that book 3 is back to how book 1 was, so that gives me hope

    This series is read by the author and her emphasis is obviously made in the places that she deemed important She has mastered the down home dialog that is needed for this series This is 2 in the series and takes place 8 years after the first book or audio ended You don t expect someone from the back hills of Virginia where Big Stone Gap is supposedly located to be a descendant of an Italian family However Ava Maria has her extended family living in Italy This book of the series tak This series is read by the author and her emphasis is obviously made in the places that she deemed important She has mastered the down home dialog that is needed for this series This is 2 in the series and takes place 8 years after the first book or audio ended You don t expect someone from the back hills of Virginia where Big Stone Gap is supposedly located to be a descendant of an Italian family However Ava Maria has her extended family living in Italy This book of the series takes Ava Maria and her daughter Etta across the pond for a month to visit Her husband Jack was supposed to go also, but family discord kept him for going After eight years of marriage, the birth of their daughter, the death of their son Joe, and the loss of Jacks mining job, Jack does not believe that Ava Maria is still in love with him Ava meets Pete in Italy Is she still in love with Jack How important is her marriage Does she want to save it Other than loving the authors voice as she narrates this book, I believe that I enjoyed book 1 in the series a bit better than book 2 On to book audio 3 in the series to see where this will be going

    This book is sexist They have troubles in their marriage, the woman blames everything on herself and tries everything she can to fix it, even when it appears her husband might be looking at other women And yet, he still says everything she is doing isn t enough and she needs to do better And her job advancement makes him mad, but he can start a company and it is fine and dandy Worst of all, the author buys into all this crap instead of using the story to vindicate all the women who are carry This book is sexist They have troubles in their marriage, the woman blames everything on herself and tries everything she can to fix it, even when it appears her husband might be looking at other women And yet, he still says everything she is doing isn t enough and she needs to do better And her job advancement makes him mad, but he can start a company and it is fine and dandy Worst of all, the author buys into all this crap instead of using the story to vindicate all the women who are carrying the full weight of making a marriage work, making a home, a career, and being a perfect wife, mother, friend, and community member This book pissed me off it was like you fall in love, you get married, then you become a slave to your husband and children, never have time to think about yourself again, and nothing you do is good enough Also, the writer doesn t even do a good job of showing the main character doing all the things that she is later accused of doing

    Sequel to Big Stone Gap, the second in this series focuseson the relationship between Jack and Ave Maria eight years into their marriage There was a slight departure from the light heartedness of the first novel, the fluffiness replaced with a seriousness that made this novelaffecting The writing is much improved and the characters still quirky and charming It was painful and slightly distressing at times, but there was something beautiful and tender in Ave s grief, which is why I Sequel to Big Stone Gap, the second in this series focuseson the relationship between Jack and Ave Maria eight years into their marriage There was a slight departure from the light heartedness of the first novel, the fluffiness replaced with a seriousness that made this novelaffecting The writing is much improved and the characters still quirky and charming It was painful and slightly distressing at times, but there was something beautiful and tender in Ave s grief, which is why I thought this was a better novel than the first With that said, I had a few issues.I was turned off by Ave Maria s self flagellating Sure, this is told from her perspective, and I understand that her character makes it only natural that she blame herself for the state of her marriage Her voice would lose some of its authenticity without it What kills me is that this idea seems to be validated over and over Ave can t get over her son s death Ave is too independent Ave is cold and detached And the list goes on and on and on Is she completely blameless Absolutely not, but it seems as though Jack s misgivings and his part in the slow demise of their marriage is attributed to Ave, and that is what I have a huge problem with Still, it was a great novel and I look forwarding to reading the next in this series

    A deeper book than its predecessor in some ways Ave Maria and Jack have been married for eight years and have lost a child, and it s taken a toll on their marriage What got me were several moments where Ave Maria comes to some painful realizations about herself and Jack Trigiani can have you laughing out loud one moment and reaching for the tissues the next Wonderful.

    DNF I hate when we get a couple together in the first book, and they are struggling and bratty to each other in the next one I got sick of the main character and her negativity, and I don t like cheating husbands.

    I loved this one I could relate to the MC inways than I d like to admit I think the author spoke my language through the MC I also enjoyed the humor it had such charm BUT.the one thing I loved the most was her descriptive strokes She has a way with words that elevated characters, setting, and relationships I loved that and really, sometimes that is all it takes to get 5 stars from my stingy fingers This book is chick lit and the second installment to a series I haven t read the I loved this one I could relate to the MC inways than I d like to admit I think the author spoke my language through the MC I also enjoyed the humor it had such charm BUT.the one thing I loved the most was her descriptive strokes She has a way with words that elevated characters, setting, and relationships I loved that and really, sometimes that is all it takes to get 5 stars from my stingy fingers This book is chick lit and the second installment to a series I haven t read the first book in this series, but I have read the third one and gave that one 4 stars The author narrating her own book bugged with the that one, but it didn t even cross my mind once with this one I think I was just in the mood for this today So, 5 stars

  9. says:

    Like the first one of the series, I found myself drawn into the story and the small town lives of the characters, but I still don t like Ave Maria very much All of her internal issues and insecurities end up feeling selfish and somewhat contrived to me Her poor husband I also wasn t crazy about the resolution of their marriage problems so quickly at the end of the book and is everything solved by a trip to Italy I ll have to read the third book and find out I guess

    I didn t love this sequel as much as I loved Big Stone Gap and as much as I usually love Ms Trigiani s storytelling Slight spoiler alert The problem for me was I wanted to jump into the book and throttle Ave for tiptoeing around Jack s ego Why do women feel they have to do that Anyone with common sense would see she made the right decision to help support the family in a time of need They have a child that has to come before his ego She should have told him right away, but she shou I didn t love this sequel as much as I loved Big Stone Gap and as much as I usually love Ms Trigiani s storytelling Slight spoiler alert The problem for me was I wanted to jump into the book and throttle Ave for tiptoeing around Jack s ego Why do women feel they have to do that Anyone with common sense would see she made the right decision to help support the family in a time of need They have a child that has to come before his ego She should have told him right away, but she shouldn t need his permission Then her best friend Theodore, who is now out of the closet, take s her husbands side and gives her a lecture Is everybody blind in this book Next thing, Jack is carrying on with another woman, or at least putting himself in a pretty good position for a another women to stroke his ego The book ends in a nice neat bow, but I can t buy it I know there arebooks in the series, I will have to debate them Better books to read by Ms Trigiani are Very Valentine, Brava Valentine and Lucia Lucia
