Goodreads:  From the author of Maybe in Another Life—named a People Magazine pick and a “Best Book of the Summer” by Glamour and USA Today—comes a breathtaking new love story about a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.

In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.

On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.

Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.

That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.

Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?

Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying.

Ope’s Opinion:  You know how some authors have a similar rhythm to their books and after you have read a couple, you sort of know where the story is going to go?  Well Taylor Jenkins Reid is not one of those authors.  Each of her books is amazingly unique.  You will not know where she is going until she goes there. 

If you have not read Reid before – go get any one of ( or all )  her books.  You will not be disappointed in any one of them.   One True Loves took me down a road I did not expect and I enjoyed the journey.  She made me feel each character’s deep feelings.

Do you believe there is only one person in this world for you?  If you do, read this book and see if you still believe it or if this book changes your mind….

The ending is wonderfully satisfying.
