One night can change everything….
Leigh Anne Davis has never really had a life of her own choosing. She’s always been the girl who does what she’s told. Except that time two years ago when she shocked everyone in the small town of Fairhope by breaking up with the richest guy in town and heading off to Boston to follow her dreams.
It was the single most exciting thing she’s ever done for herself, and it felt like the start of something big…Until one terrifying night ripped it all away.
With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim what’s left of her old life. On the outside, she seems like the same reliable girl everyone knows and loves. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.
That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again.
If she wants to step back into that old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.
Only, the Trouble with Goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.

An appropriate time to read this
It isn’t often that a book filed under ‘Romance’ is written in the first person. How, for example, does one write the hot and heavy bits in the first person! Expectedly, there is nothing in that department.
This book is not a romance. It is a story of growing up, of the power of youth, of grief and loss, and, critically, of the redeeming power of trust, courage and friendship - the kind, especially, that only the young seem to be capable of.
As we all roil in the throes of the #metoo movement; this book surprisingly helps to understand the trauma and tumult of a ‘victim’ of assault. The first person account works powerfully here. It is a masterful technique that impels the reader to listen to the voice of the woman herself. Women are constantly (and easily) judged for speaking up too late. We do it to ourselves too all the time. This book will make many rethink their assumptions.
It is fast paced, has a plot that is tightly knit and reads true. And importantly, it has the right emotions and is hopeful. A book that is necessary for our times.
This book was so charming and realistic when it came to the decisions the main character had to face. I enjoyed this book very much and I definitely recommend reading this.
Wow I loved how much depth was in this book. It was very easy to get invested in the characters and it didnt shy away from real worl issues. Love!
