there were a few flaws for me. The hardest part for me was never really understanding Jamie’s character, and how Lynn loved him so much. He seemed very controlling and it was like Lynn tried to do everything to make him happy, and seemed to forget about herself. That made it hard for me to connect with the book

Synopsis

A good marriage lasts forever…until it doesn’t.

From the start, Lynn and Jamie Prosper were one of those couples who seem meant to be—so content with each other that they barely notice the rest of the world nodding approvingly at their wedded bliss. But sometimes, even in the very best of marriages, all it takes is a mischievous outsider to bring the perfect couple toppling off the top of the wedding cake…
True, Jamie has been working so hard and traveling so much as a young lawyer that he hardly has enough energy to show his devotion. Not that Lynn, a junior museum curator, has any reason to question it. But when Lynn’s old college friend turns up at a cocktail party, chinks in their marriage’s previously unassailable armor start to show.
Suddenly, without meaning to, Lynn and Jamie have both acquired divorce lawyers. And those benevolent onlookers—meddling in-laws and competitive friends alike—eagerly bear witness to each new misstep. Is love really enough to make a marriage last?

Reviewed by Kit-Bacon Gressitt on May 17 2012

despite the inevitable happy ending in "Prosper in Love," the novel transcends the beach-bag paperback genre. If you are a fan of relationship-oriented books with female protagonists who struggle with contemporary issues, you'll love it.

PROSPER IN LOVE moved a little slowly for me. I understand why it was written the way it was, but some parts, I thought, could have been left out.

Reviewed by Samantha Robey on May 18 2012

The thought that so many outside forces such as friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances can have such an impact on the marriage between two people is fascinating, and Michel peels back the layers to uncover a marvelous romance novel.

Reviewed by Nancy on May 23 2012

The story is told solely from Lynn’s point of view, and I felt Jamie was not quite as developed as he could have been... I also would have liked an epilogue to wrap things up, as the ending was a bit abrupt.
