When Annie pulls up at the church in her wedding gown, and her wedding planner tells her that her groom isn’t coming, she is understandably devastated. In an attempt to turn her life around, she starts going to a gym and bumps into Patrick, an old friend who reminds her of days when she used to be happier and true to herself. The parents of the absentee groom feel horrible about their son’s actions and offer Annie to take the honeymoon that they would have gifted the couple. Annie decides to ask Patrick to go with her, and they set off for a three week trip together.
This book was a fun look at a young woman who is trying to figure out who she is after years of shaping herself into her fiance’s perfect woman. Patrick was a very engaging presence, and it’s enjoyable watching the two of them fall back into an easy friendhsip after almost 20 years. I really love a romance where a character takes a journey toward finding out truths about themselves, and this book fit the bill for that perfectly.
Thank you so much to Harper 360 and Avon Books for providing me an eARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review!
