About the book: Sophia thought she was over her broken heart, but the news that her roommate has eloped with Sophia's ex-husband hits her like a ton of bricks. She knows she should be fine with the unexpected revelation—after all, her boyfriend, Luke, is incredible, but it would seem her heart is not as resilient as she thought. And as Luke prepares to leave for his European study abroad, Sophia's feelings of fear and inadequacy threaten to overwhelm her. A summer with her family in Las Vegas gives Sophia the time she needs, but she still can't shake the questions haunting her, the questions that continually threaten to put more than physical distance between Luke and her. Is she really ready to jump into a new relationship when the last one ended so painfully? Will her divorce always define her? Is she the one with the problem?
As she wistfully observes others' love stories blossoming around her, Sophia must decide whether she's prepared to take another chance on love. Luke's return from Europe forces Sophia to confront the decision she's not sure she's prepared for—will her troubled past destroy the happy ending of which she's always dreamed?
My review: I was so excited when I got this book and realized that it was a companion book to The Skeleton in My Closet Wears a Wedding Dress! I fell in love with the characters in that one and I always love to find out what happens to my favorite characters later. I was not disappointed in this one.
Sophia is a really well-written and developed character. I found myself hoping against hope that all would turn out happy for her, but she seemed to be really hung up on not wanting to get close to marriage with Luke because of how her first marriage turned out. I really liked Luke too, what guy would be willing to wait for her to decide she's okay with things only to have Sophia change her mind over and over and over.
The plot of this book is good, really cute! It wasn't the fastest moving plot ever, but it did keep me engaged up until the final page. I thought that the clever subtitles of the chapters were a really fun touch. I am hoping to be able to read more by Sally Johnson really soon!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
