Recommended for anyone who appreciates stories that delve into the psychological experience of love.

Reminiscent of The Devil Wears Prada, except set in the legal world, this is ideal for fans of the "New York professional who finds herself" script interspersed with sexy humor.

The Rough Patch: Marriage and the Art of Living Together

A solid choice for readers seeking information about common struggles in marriage, but this book is slim as a how-to. A best choice for readers who have a deep interest in the field of marital therapy and already have some subject-specific knowledge of psychology.
