Rachel has a thing for her writing professor Zahid, and she thinks he might feel the same way about her. But when Zahid meets Rachel's mother, Becca, who is looking after his dog while he's been in Pakistan for a funeral, he quickly develops feelings for her. Becca's husband ( and Rachel's father) Jonathan has a thing for Mandy, a pilot. He's left his family in Connecticut and moved into Mandy's apartment in Tribeca. Back in Connecticut, things are not going the way Rachel had planned. When Zahid moves in with her and her mother to write his second novel, he has little time for Rachel but all the time in the world for Becca. How could it not be an interesting summer with all these tangled relations?
Very Nice is a fast-paced, fun tale that will remind you of nothing you've read recently. With a contemporary flair that seems spot-on for our times and characters who seemed so real, this is
one book I'm glad I got to read.
Thanks to Alfred A. Knopf for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
