Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?

Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer. 

From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.

Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo. 

That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them. 

Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.

Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.

Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.

It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love. 

We both had one wish: more time together.

But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back. 

A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.

I believed our story was over.

Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.  

I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?

Well, I knew nothing yet.

Great love story

I wish I could have connected more with Felicity as a main character. That’s the only thing I struggled with but the story was beautiful.

Gave me full range of emotions

I’ve read a couple of P. Ward’s books and they have followed the fell in love, separated, then reunited scenario. Which comes with ups and downs. If you are up for that then this is a great book.

Super boring

I read the first 2 books and against my better judgment bought the 3rd please stop before I did! I dislike whiny characters and the build wasn’t there! I wanted her to be with Noah but maybe he deserved better! Both main charters were horrible people with redeeming jobs! Sorry kawdra but no
