It’s not often you find a book that so perfectly captures the messy complexities of modern mid-life marriages and manages to also be a riveting page turner, yet with Reservations for Six, Palmer somehow pulls it off. I inhaled this book in two days, but these six characters so fully came alive for me that I’ll be thinking about them for much, much longer. Absolutely brilliant.” ―USA Today bestselling author, Colleen Oakley
