Marilyn Simon Rothstein cracked readers up with her debut novel, LIFT AND SEPARATE and her recent novel, HUSBANDS and OTHER SHARP OBJECTS is providing laughs just as well.
HUSBANDS and OTHER SHARP OBJECTS (LakeUnionPublishing), is a heartwarming, hilarious novel for anyone who has ever had a family.
After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer is ready to get herself unhitched—just as everyone else in her life is looking for a commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Harvey, is desperate to get back together. When her headstrong daughter announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce.
Now with two huge events on the horizon, the indomitable Marcy soon realizes that there’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the worst in everybody. From petty skirmishes over an ever-growing guest list to awkward confrontations with her sticky-fingered new in-laws, pulling off the wedding is going to be a challenge; seeing her divorce through is going to be a trial. And trying to make everyone happy might prove to be impossible—because in the end, Marcy alone must make a choice between something old and something new.

- What do you love about the Holidays?
The best thing is being with family … until we all annoy each other.
- What is your fondest Holiday memory?
My daughter Sharyn flew in from Los Angeles on a red eye to surprise me. Also, the year the turkey went on fire in the oven and the fire department came. Not to worry, we had many side dishes.
5. What are your wishes for 2019?
I wish for peace in the world and that I should suddenly look … like I’m thirty.
