    Great easy read

    This was an entertaining, easy read. Enjoyed this book, and the characters were likeable, despite their typical flaw of human nature

    Laugh out loud hilarious!

    I really liked The Arrangement – it is unconventional, smart, well-paced, hilarious and at times poignant. I haven’t been entertained like this by a book in a long time. Sarah Dunn is amazing! What married couple hasn’t fantasized about having it all? The marriage, kids, house, a sense of community AND a free pass to have sex with someone else! Attractive, thirty-something Lucy and Owen trade in their New York City lifestyle for suburbia Beekman to raise their 5-year old autistic son Wyatt. To revive their stale marriage they embark on something completely unconventional – an open marriage. Their arrangement has clear rules: six months tops, no sex with friends, no questions asked, no falling in love and no leaving. Sound like the perfect arrangement? Dunn nails the suburban lifestyle with her brilliant cast of stereotypical characters – from Sunny Bang often confused for the other two Asian women in Beekman, to Gordon Allen the tycoon married to his much younger third wife, to Mr. (Mrs.) Lowell the transgender kindergarten teacher. Then there’s the partners Lucy and Owen choose for their flings. Owen, a typical man, bangs the first attractive woman he meets – Izzy, batty as hell and nags him more than his wife but wise beyond her facade. Meanwhile, Sunny (who could never have a fling but wants all the details) sets Lucy up with Ben, an old acquaintance, and single dad who ignites Lucy’s sexuality and sparks new love. Humour aside, Dunn’s portrayal of marital discord and unfortunate outcomes are spot on. This story has an authenticity about it, particularly how couples navigate thru marital stagnancy due to life’s stressors – from Lucy ‘letting herself go’ to both she and Owen managing Wyatt’s behaviour pitfalls. We also get a front row seat into their own personal growth as a result from this experiment. This would be a super story for anyone who is middle-aged and married with kids but equally entertaining for anyone who is not. I for one cannot wait to read another Sarah Dunn novel.

    Insightful & funny

    Oh my goodness!!! What a fabulous, insightful, funny and honest story about what marriage really is. SO hard to put this book down. One of my all time favourite stories. And Constance Waverly, I want to meet her, read her books, hear her speak. My new idol.
