Elizabeth the First Wife - Lian Dolan

I'm in the mood for some chic-lit.


Elizabeth teaches Shakespeare at a community college. She loves teaching and appears to be happy. Not I'm-happy- I- just- need- a- man,  but genuinely enjoying-my- life- as-it-is happy. Her ex-husband is, no joke, an A-List action star, third highest paid in the world. He crashes her class one day - (in the opening chapter, in a scene I LOVED - please go read it, you can sample it  - go- go! ) to ask if she will be a consultant for his next job - playing in an "avant-garde production" of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The Director is a big deal and her ex doesn't want to make a fool out of himself. 


I wanted to read something lighthearted, funny. This seems perfect.
