After reading the product description (same as the back cover copy), I expected something totally different than what I got. The back cover makes it sound like the book is all about the main character planning a wedding then getting caught in a hurricane. In fact, those things don't even come up until the last few chapters of the book. The whole book is about the couple's marriage problems and how they finally learn some valuable lessons and come to a resolution. I think it's a good book, but it's not what it sounds like from the given description. There's not any humor in it, it's pretty serious. But if you or someone you know are going through some marriage challenges, I think there's a lot of solid take-away there, in a well done fiction format.
Summer Nelson has always liked things to be controlled and in order. Everything else seems to be that way in her life, except her marriage.. which leaves her frustrated and confused. Add to that an (annoying) ex-lover who unexpectedly shows up and a friend who's determined to start out a new life for herself after a horrible divorce. And you have two (yes 2!) love stories that will stay with you long after you've turn the last page.
This was my first read by Annalisa Daughtery and I liked it!
What a gorgeous cover! Very beautiful colours who are joined together really nicely; As are also the characters inside this book. Yes the story is quite predictable but I finished this in less than 24 hours, so for me it was quite engaging and sometimes hard to put down.
This is a touching story, that will pull some emotions of you. Readers will ache for Summer and Luke because of all they went through, and will cheer on Ashley and Justin as they learn to take a step with faith.
I would really recommend it if you're looking for a smooth read!
Love, loss, heartache, forgiveness, drama and happiness--this book has it all.
I have enjoyed all of Annalisa Daughety's books, and this one tops the list of my favorites! The story was interesting and had its fair share of drama without being over-the-top. The story flowed well because the characters were easy to relate to.
The entire time I was reading, I felt like I could work for Summer Nelson's wedding planning business or be her best friend because she was so real, with real-life problems that women have either experienced themselves or cried with a friend while she experienced them.
I felt like I was watching a movie because I wanted to yell at my "screen" to tell Summer and Luke what to do to fix things, but Daughety effortlessly weaved their struggles together into a story that everyone will love.
