Wow, there is a lot going on in this book so here goes…Ben is gone after a plane crash, his wife Abby is left to pick up the pieces, Joel is a doctor Abby has started dating and he has a whole trunk of excess baggage himself. Christian is a billionaire who wants to build on the island where Ben’s plane crashed. Every single person in this story is connected in mysterious ways.

This book was so emotional and has a lot of heartbreak in it. There is just so much grieving and loss. It is much more than a “woman loses her husband in a plane crash” story. It was a really heartfelt story that played with my emotions and had me feeling everything under the sun. I liked how the book showed that we never know what someone is going through so it is always best to be kind.

I loved Abby as a main character, she is strong yet sensitive, smart, and successful. And even though she was carrying a lot of grief she still managed to smile and be kind to others. There are a couple of twists at the end of the book and I in no way saw either of them coming, such a nice surprise. This was such a thought-provoking book about moving forward and the fact it was romantic and written by a male author was awesome as well.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an Advance Readers Copy.
