"Effortlessly charming . . . The book inspires a very specific kind of modern joy."
--New York Times Book Review

"A clever romantic comedy from a pro . . . The rollicking plot ultimately leads to romance, revealing this witty story's warm and fuzzy heart."
--People"[Lipman] has long been one of our wittiest chroniclers of modern-day romance. [Her] writing is brisk and intelligent, and if the plot of this novel is zanier than her usual fare, that too may show just how plugged-in she is to out farfetched times."
--Wall Street Journal

"The ultimate V-Day binge read."
--Cosmopolitan

"Lipman is the easiest writer to read, but she stays with you because she's such a good writer...A true pleasure...[She] is such a fine stylist...[
Good Riddance
] is hilarious, [with] wonderful romantic elements [and] a witty line on every page, in every paragraph."
--Bill Goldstein, NBC's "Bill's Books"

"To the many readers who have happily drowned their worries in the sparkling waters of Lipman's fizzy fiction, it is obvious that Lipman was born to entertain us . . . Lipman writes with a light, wry touch that tips a hat to life's many challenges but never throws in the towel."
--San Diego Union-Tribune

"When you come to the end of Good Riddance [...] you'll definitely be delighted."
--Washington Post

"The question of who gets to tell one's own story lies at the heart of Lipman's smart, sassy, and satisfying rom-com . . . Luckily for fans of contemporary women's fiction, the answer is Lipman as she once again delivers a tightly woven, lightly rendered, but insightfully important novel of the pitfalls to be avoided and embraced on one's path to self-discovery."
--Booklist"Lipman's satisfying latest is a worthy addition to her long lineup of smart, witty novels. . . a charming romantic comedy . . . with a stellar cast of supporting characters [. . . ] and intelligent and lyrical prose . . . A delightful treat readers will want to savor."
--Publishers Weekly

"Fans of Lipman will cheer for a new novel in her signature style: funny, warm, sharp, smart, and full of love for family, no matter how flawed."
--Library Journal

"Au courant elements . . . add a fresh twist to the proceedings. Lipman's narrative brio keeps things moving at a good clip."
--Kirkus Reviews

"It's good riddance to dismay and hello to happiness in this witty romantic comedy."
