Second chances are for suckers.
Or so Ethan Thomas believes. A year ago, he walked away from his wife—the woman he has loved since he was ten years old—after believing she betrayed him. Since then he's settled in his hometown of Mystic Point, Connecticut among old friends, with a new job and a jaded outlook on life. As long as he can keep his estranged wife Lainie out of his mind, he has a chance to live contentedly, if not happily. Happiness is overrated, anyway.
Lainie Thomas has spent the past year in a solitary confinement of her own making. She once had everything—a successful career, a home in a big city, and the man of her dreams. But she took it for granted and ended up losing it all. Now she's been given one last shot at redemption, one last chance to show Ethan she never betrayed him, one last time to convince him their marriage is worth fighting for.
But can she convince him to love her once more or is she too late to reclaim the happily-ever-after they both deserve?
The writing is very polished and well-edited. The storyline is engaging and sweeps you through the end. It's angsty and heartfelt. It introduces several interesting characters who you'd want to get to know and continue to explore the series.
