Publisher's Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber has written an emotionally stirring novel that shows how sometimes a choice can seem wrong even though it’s absolutely right.

If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not—and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn’t exactly Sam’s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either.

But if not for an awkward setup one evening, Beth might never have left early and been involved in a car crash. And if not for Sam—who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived—Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital—even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both.

Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine. When shocking secrets from Sam’s past are revealed, Beth struggles to reconcile her feelings. But when Beth goes a step too far, she risks losing the man and the life she’s come to love.

    If not for certain people, places and events in our lives, our lives could take entirely different turns, as the main character, Beth finds out in this book.

    At the age of 25, Beth decides that it is time to take control of her life. Up to this point, her controlling mother has guided everything she has done, including picking the male companions she would date.

    After moving from Chicago to Portland, Beth finds a job, makes new friends and experiences many things she would have never been able to if she would have stayed at home.

    A horrible experience leads her to a very unlikely new friend in her life. Will the vast differences in their lifestyles and upbringings keep them apart, or will their friendship turn into a special gift? Will Beths mother undermine Beths attempts at a new life, or will Beth stand up to her mother to be in control of her life? Where will all of this end?

    Each book that the author writes becomes my new favorite. I enjoyed this book so much and was able to read it in a couple of days. I highly recommend it to all lovers of Debbie Macomber books.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Penguin Random House, in exchange for my honest unbiased review.
