Rosie is bored with her job, her marriage is blah, her kids take her for granted, and her social life is nonesistent. Even though Rosie recognizes that sheís in a rut, she doesnít plan to change her lifeóat least until PJ tells her that sheís as comfortable as an old arm chair. Rosie is offended by this, as arm chairs are ratty with springs sticking out.

So, Rosie decides on an extreme makeover. Examining her relationships, Rosie wonders if she needs a marital makeover as well. Is it too late to fix things, or will Rosie need to give up any chance at happiness?

Will She Or Won't She is the first book Iíve read by Sheila Norton. I was not horribly impressed with her writing style as the story is told and not shown. I never was able to get a good grip on the characters, and the story line seemed to bounce around, so I was never completely in a scene.

The story idea has itís potential, but I donít feel that this writing style gave to itís full potential. This story could have been so much better if the author would have taken the time to emotionally connect with her characters herself, and written the story in a way that the reader could relate and feel the pain that Rosie was going through. However, the reader will come away with a valuable message that does make the book worth reading.
