Publisher Description

"A fresh, funny take on the search for a soulmate." —People

A savvy, page-turning novel about a woman torn between her husband and the man she thought she'd marry by the author of the New York Times Bestseller and Reese's Book Club Pick,  The Last Thing He Told Me

Annie Adams is days away from her thirty-second birthday and thinks she has finally found some happiness. She visits the world's most interesting places for her syndicated travel column and she's happily cohabiting with her movie director boyfriend Nick in Los Angeles. But when Nick comes home from a meeting with his therapist (aka "futures counselor") and announces that he's taking a break from their relationship so he can pursue a woman from his past, the place Annie had come to call home is shattered. Reeling, Annie stumbles into her neighborhood bar and finds Griffin-a grounded, charming chef who seems to be everything Annie didn't know she was looking for. Within three months, Griffin is Annie's husband and Annie finds herself trying to restart her life in rural Massachusetts.

A wry observer of modern love, Laura Dave "steers clear of easy answers to explore the romantic choices we make" (USA Today). Her third novel is packed with humor, empathy, and psychological insight about the power of love and home.

Predictable and a bit dull

This was just ok. I feel like I’ve read this before and it was a bit predictable. I didn’t find Annie relatable honestly and I sorta feel bad for Griffin. I was a bit annoyed and this wasn’t more dramatic. It’s just ok at best for me. Didn’t hate it. Didn’t love it. Didn’t crave it.
