Many women are spending their Sunday nights watching Downton Abbey and I am one of them.  I've been reading WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY by Wendy Wax and even though I am not quite done with it, I wanted to tell you about it right away.

This book was originally published in April, but has now been re-released in a mass-market paperback.  I have to admit, I haven't read from a mass-market paperback in quite awhile.  It took some getting used to the smaller print for me.  But, the story is so engaging and I am finding myself identifying with the characters and not wanting to stop reading.

Samantha's marriage has been complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal.  Claire, an empty-nester and struggling author, is wondering if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than not having any dreams at all.  And after countless battles with her faithless ex-husband, Brooke is coming to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be.

But, when Edward, the concierge of their historic Atlanta apartment building, invites them for weekly screening of an addictive television show, the four of them embark on a season of surprises as they forget a bond that will sustain them through life's hardest moments - all of it reflecting in the unfolding drama, comedy and convergent lives of "Downton Abbey".

I listened to the audio book version of this one and really enjoyed it! The narrator was fantastic with voices and her Southern accent was charming.
