Blog Tour: Once More With Feeling by Megan Crane

She's suffered the very worst of betrayals.

 And now Sarah's facing a divorce she never expected.

 With Christmas round the corner, what better time to  re-evaluate her life? As she reconsiders every choice she's made, she starts to wonder if her life was so perfect after all.

 This winter, lose yourself in Sarah's world of unmade  decisions, lost friends and old flames...
I went into this after just reading the synopsis and that was enough to peak my interest but jeepers this really took me through a whirlwind of emotions.
Sarah is married to Tim and they have been together for 7 years, married for five of them.  They are partners in a law firm and have a lovely house.  Everything in their life is carefully planned out by both of them.
Therefore, Sarah did not expect to come home early from court, stripping off her clothes as she walked into the bedroom and find her husband energetically having doggie-style sex with another woman.  It’s more who he is with that blows her away.
When she needs her parents the most she feels completely unsupported.  I have to say that I am totally on Sarah’s side with this whole situation.  It was so bizarre that her family seems to brush everything under the carpet and almost tell her that she was the one with the problem. 
When there is a tragic accident, Sarah finds herself back ‘in charge’ of the situation, just when everything feels like it is out of her control.  Maybe there is a chance she can hang on to her sham of a marriage and have a future with Tim? 
Is she better off walking away with her head held high and take this chance to reflect on the choices she has made over the past 8 years? What about all those dreams she had to travel and then there is a certain doctor who still has a piece of her heart.
I give this 3.5 stars.
It could be worse.

I made the words my mantra.  A daily chant, an affirmation—and the best part was that it was true.  It could, in fact, always be worse. Pestilence.  Famine. Disease.  Death.

Any of those were much worse, obviously, than my own puny little grief.

There were so many people who got divorced.  Many of them had no idea that their marriages were even in trouble until it was all over, just like me.  I wasn’t the only one, the only fool.  I couldn’t be.  Just like I couldn’t possibly be the only one with the grea misfortune to come home unexpectedly and find her spouse in bed with someone else.  

It could be worse.  Couldn’t it?
Megan Crane is a New Jersey native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow audiences with her singing
voice required a back up plan. Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable multi-media artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons, she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with a dog, a cat, two crazy kittens, and an
artist named Jeff. She is still plotting her Broadway debut.
