The Arrangement
by Sarah Dunn

PBR Review A young suburban couple decides their marriage needs a boost. There is nothing alarmingly wrong with their relationship, it just feels like it’s dipping into the doldrums and getting a bit stagnant. It doesn’t need a major overhaul, just a tune-up. Their friends have talked up the “Arrangement,” an agreement between them, to have an open marriage for six months, no questions asked. Lucy and Owen decide it sounds appealing, why not give it a try. And so the story begins. This delightful book explores open marriages in an authentic way. You’ll love the characters and find yourself shaking your head in disbelief one minute and smiling the next. Recommend.Back.
Talking Points: Aside from the main topic of 'is monogamy best in a marriage', which will be a hot topic, this book also explores the issues of transgender shaming, dealing with an autistic child, and relationships. It also touches on the meaning of love and examines the concept 'is the grass always greener on the other side'?
PBR Reader Comments:
I loved the concept of this book. Can agreeing to have an open marriage for six months put the spark back in a relationship? This story realistically explores this. It’s original, funny and nicely written – once you start, you won’t want to put the book down. You can’t help but wonder if what seems like a disaster in the making is going to work. Recommend.
