Cheat Day: A Novel

We rated this book:


Cheat Day is the story of a young woman named Kit who lives in New York City with her husband David and their cat Woogie. The story centers on Kit’s life and her indecision in terms of life choices. David is a successful businessman who loves Kit. Kit and her sister Melissa were raised by their nonna after their mother passed away when they were little. Kit, Melissa, and their cousin, Angelo, co-own the bakery where Kit works. The problem lies within Kit, who is always on some kind of fad diet and quits and gets rehired at the bakery on and off.

The story was written with a good flow. It was easy to follow Kit throughout her day and understand what she was thinking as she made her life decisions. Ultimately, this book is about Kit cheating (thus the title of the book) on David and then contemplating what it would be like to leave him.

Kit’s character had some deep internal conflict that was holding her back in life. I think there is something in this book that most women can relate to at some time in their life. Cheat Day is well-written and features quirky characters and a fun setting.
