"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.

Inspiring and creative

I really enjoyed the soul searching that the main character shared. So many chic lit books have shallow characters that make me crazy because of their insecurities and it's hard to relate. This book was thought provoking and very original. The artistic aspects were inspiring and as an artist that's always a plus in a light novel. Look forward to reading her other books.

Poorly Written

This book was hard to read because sometimes the sentence structure was really...off. I don’t know how to describe it. The characters felt like strangers even in the final chapters. Eh. It was a slightly interesting story, but I just found myself wanting to skip to the end. It’s a beach read, for sure.

Don't waste your $

Not worth it. I was hurrying to finish it so I could start reading another book and instead wish I wouldn't have wasted my time finishing it.
