From New York Times bestselling romance author Jean Oram…
One woman. One cheating ex. One life do-over.
Amber Thompson always thought she wanted a superstar boyfriend—until he kicked her to the curb on the eve of his big break.
When Amber’s best friend, Scott Malone, comes running in to save her once again, she realizes he’s the man she truly wants. The only problem? Scott isn’t interested in pursuing a woman on the rebound.
Determined to prove she’s ready to commit, Amber comes up with a plan to woo Scott, only to have it derailed by explosive family secrets. With her assumptions about everything—including herself—dismantled, she finds herself torn between a need for answers and protecting her mother’s past. But Amber knows if she has any hope of a meaningful relationship with Scott, she needs to figure out who she is—and that means unearthing even more secrets.
Will Amber find what she’s looking for? And if she does, will she find it in time to help her win the man of her dreams?

“Deciding who to fall in love with is like deciding where and when lightening is going to strike. You don’t get to choose things”.
Amber Thompson of Blueberry Springs is the stuff of gossips everywhere. Dumped by her wanna be writer boyfriend who used her to get his story written, she finds herself at loose ends all the while hoping the news finishes its cycle and she can get back to life...and chocolate.
As the dust begins to clear Amber finds herself a bit lost, and her mother’s revelations aren’t helping. Growing up is hard, and maturing might even be harder still as new revelations and feelings of love towards her best friend get harder and harder to ignore. The question is “now what?”.
This is one of the sweetest romances I have read in a very long time. I read it in two sittings, quickly getting caught up in the delightful story and routing for Amber and her family and friends. Pure escapism. Highly recommended
