Breaking Even by Kathleen Kole

A fast, enjoyable summer read and lovable characters.  The grass is not always greener on the other side and this book has us looking at both sides of the grass.
Penelope has been engaged to wonderful, kind and caring Ben Miller ... a man she has known forever. They've been engaged for a number of years, yet have not felt committed enough to set a wedding date.  Enter Single Dad. While on a school run for her good friend, Penelope accidentally locks her keys in her car. A seemingly boring event, until she is offered aid by an extremely attractive and personable Single Dad. The two immediately feel a connection.  Shaken by the encounter, or, more to the point, shaken by her reaction to the encounter, Penelope begins to take a close look at her life and her future with Ben.

Her whole world, including her friends are shaken by the events that follow.  I was rooting for Penelope and Ben.  What would you do?
