Fate has always seemed to mock Charlotte Montgomery, continuously dangling the man of her dreams just out of reach. It isn’t until Charlotte receives word her older sister Emma is getting engaged that she feels fate’s teasing has hit a new high.
Once she begrudgingly decides to return home to the tiny town of Parish Cove, curious to find out who has captured her sister’s heart, fate suddenly seems as though it may have tossed her a bone.
The problem: Charlotte forgot one simple thing… Fate has never been her friend.
Emotions run high. Happiness will be shattered. And tragedy will strike, leaving everyone feeling paper thin.

This book was not what I was expecting. I lie. It was not what I was expecting when I requested it from NetGalley but it was what I was expecting after reading a few reviews. This book was sad and everything happened to Charlotte (and her family) but I really enjoyed it. I really liked Charlotte as a character. Yes she had a few problems character wise but she was just a 20 year-old girl who didn’t know what she should do so she’s just ran away from a few things. I really enjoyed her journey even if the end was sad and I wasn’t expecting that (I was expecting to be sad but not in the way it was). Another thing I really liked in this book was Charlotte’s friendship with Dawson. I really enjoyed how they helped each other with their problems and with the things were happening in their life. I could have a few problems with their friendship and with a few things that happened but I kind of understand why they did what did. One thing I really wanted was to see more of her Charlotte’s relationship with her sister before a few things happened. I think there wasn’t time to see how they really were together and I would love to see they interacting a little bit more. The story itself was beautiful and heartbreaking. Yes it was hard to read this book because everything happened at the same time to Charlotte but in the end I really enjoyed it.
Overall, this book was way better than I was expecting and I’m really happy about it. If you’re looking for a happy book this book is not for you but if you want to read something realistic with some character development you should give this one a try because it was beautiful.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
