Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An intelligent piece of female fiction about what happens when you say no. It’s a book that balances work against a relationship and gets it all horribly wrong. Clever, astute, moving and at times funny, it is a very assured debut novel, no doubt the beginning of a successful career for the author who has given up law to write.

Comparison: Kate Long, Melissa Bank, Rebecca Wells.

Synopsis

The Opposite of Love by Julie Buxbaum

When feisty and successful Manhattan attorney Emily Haxby ends her happy relationship just as her boyfriend is on the verge of proposing, she can’t explain to herself, let alone her closest friends, why she did it.

And whilst Emily contemplates whether she has made a huge mistake, the rest of her world begins to unravel. She is assigned – by a boss who can’t keep his hands to himself – to a multimillion-dollar lawsuit where she must defend the very values she detests, and there’s something wrong with Grandpa Jack, the person she cares most about in the world…

As Emily finally begins to take control of her life and come to terms with issues she didn’t even know she had, she realizes that perhaps what she wants has been there all along…
