Goodreads: Libby Miller has always been an unwavering optimist—but when her husband drops a bomb on their marriage the same day a doctor delivers devastating news, she realizes her rose-colored glasses have actually been blinding her.
With nothing left to lose, she abandons her life in Chicago for the clear waters and bright beaches of the Caribbean for what might be her last hurrah. Despite her new sunny locale, her plans go awry when she finds that she can’t quite outrun the past or bring herself to face an unknowable future. Every day of tropical bliss may be an invitation to disaster, but with her twin brother on her trail and a new relationship on the horizon, Libby is determined to forget about fate. Will she risk it all to live—and love—a little longer?
From critically acclaimed author Camille Pagán comes a hilarious and hopeful story about a woman choosing between a “perfect” life and actually living.
Ope’s Opinion: This book started out kind of all over place. It felt scattered to me, but that may be how you feel when you get so much hard news at the same time. Then Libby seemed to run away – which may not have been a unusual reaction in those circumstances.
Although, this book had heavy subjects, it was a light, quick read. It was a different perspective then I expected.
I bought this one – your review has me intrigued. Hope to read it this summer.
