Margaret Jacobson had what she would describe as the perfect life. A promising new job, a great condo, and a brand-new fiancé. Little did she know her entire life was about to change. Tragedy strikes and she is forced to re-evaluate her entire life when she awakens into a situation she could never imagine. A constant feeling of loss, and “what could have been” moments, Margaret decides to fight and forgive so she can move forward and open herself up to love when she least expects it.
I did not expect to like this book. But it’s a perfect combination of love story, humor and drama that keeps you wanting more. You can’t help but fall in love with Margaret, Kit and Ian, they are very likable characters and they make the book even more worth while. I had a strong hatred towards Chip and his mother, both of them made mt skin crawl which I think was a the point, so kudos to the author on that one. This book really expresses loss in so many ways and within so many characters, it really shows that you really don’t know what other people are going through. How other people could be struggling with their own demons, but plaster on a smile (or not) throughout their day to day life. This book was beautifully written, and the story line was great. I will be looking for more by Katherine Center.
