Laurie is sure love at first sight doesn't exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Certain they're fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn't find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they "reunite" at a Christmas party, when her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces her new boyfriend: the man from the bus.

After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer is ready to get herself unhitched - just as everyone else in her life is looking for a commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Harvey, is desperate to get back together. When her headstrong daughter announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce. Now with two huge events on the horizon, the indomitable Marcy soon realizes that there’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the worst in everybody.

This is a sweet little book, great summer read. It is not going to change your life, but it will make you smile. And that is a nice thing in this crazy world! To be honest, I "read" the book because I LOVE the narration by Pamela Almand! I have a 2 1/2 hour commute everyday in bumper to bumper traffic! You can imagine what my stress level must be like. My DIL suggested Audible, and Audible has been a game changer for me! It has turned the 2 hours I am in the car to "me time" where I can get lost in a book, and let the rest of the world go by. When I find a book narrated by Pamela...I am all in! She makes any story come alive! Go check her out, you won't be sorry!!
