A tale of two Mikes. . .
and the one that got away
Once upon a time in the 1980s, a girl named Beau was torn between two Mikes: did she prefer her high-school sweetheart or the sexy stranger she'd picked up in an airport bar? One she eventually married, the other she left behind (and forgot all about, or tried to, anyway).
But which Mike did she choose? This delightful tale by the bestselling author or Slightly Single and Slightly Settled alternates between the story of Beau's summer of Mikes and the outcome fifteen years later. . .without giving away which Mike ended up where--in Beau's marriage bed or in her memory.
In the "Now" chapters, the former swinging single lives in the 'burbs with a childbirth-traumatized body, an increasingly distant husband and a sad sack maid who isn't much for cleaning. When out of the blue the Mike-not-taken sends her flirty e-mail, she suddenly finds herself back to square one, trying to decide which man is the Mike of her dreams.

Unlike her heroine, happily married suburban mom Wendy Markham has never been torn between two men, and she never knew all the words to any Paula Abdul song; however, she unfortunately did frequently hairspray her bangs into a tusk and wear neon-striped bike shorts back in the summer of 1989. Under her real name, she is the New York Times bestselling author or more than fifty books.From Booklist:
The inventive premise of Markham's winning novel involves a love triangle in both the past and the present among pretty Beau, the Mike she married, and the Mike she left behind. Beau spent her early twenties in Manhattan in the late 1980s working for a television show and dating her high-school sweetheart, Mike, who was torn between moving to New York and staying in California. Beau is waiting in an airport bar for Mike when she meets the other Mike, a handsome stranger who charms her right off the bat and asks her out. In the present, Beau is married to one of the Mikes, living in the suburbs with him and their three children, but an e-mail from the other Mike gets her wondering about what could have been, and what still could be. Markham alternates between the past and the present, not giving away which Mike Beau chose to marry until the very end of the novel. Markham's latest is an appealing, wholly original yarn.
