A silly premise and a very personal issue comprise what turns out to be a meaningful story, delivered by two narrators. The story starts with Thea, Gavin's wife, talking about divorce. Gavin, portrayed by Andrew Eiden, doesn't want to divorce, so his baseball buddies bring him into their secret "club"--a group of men who read romance novels to help them with their marriages or ability to woo women. Eiden gives Gavin a big heart and a tone of integrity. Additionally, Eiden realistically projects Gavin's initial reluctance to accept the idea that a romance novel might actually be able to help him with his marriage. Maxwell Caulfield masterfully voices the Count who is featured in the Regency romance the group offers Gavin. The two narrators add depth and resonance to a surprisingly deep love story. S.K.G.
