Romance novels, chick lit, whatever you want to call them aren't always my thing. So often these types of books are so cheesy they are hard to choke down and I really have to be in the right mood to read them, but not this one.
I received an advanced copy of Centers novel How to Walk Away there months before it was released from my local bookseller friends and I was immediately interested because the book started with a tragedy, but there was no damsel in distress.
Margaret Jacobsen has a bright future ahead of her: a fiancé she adores, her dream job, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in one tumultuous moment.
In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Margaret must figure out how to move forward on her own terms while facing long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.
How to Walk Away is Katherine Center at her very best: an utterly charming, hopeful, and romantic novel that will capture reader’s hearts with every page.
Margaret is a strong and brave heroine of her own story and I cheered for her all the way through the story. If you are looking for a lighthearted and positive story check out this book.
