Publisher's Summary

In this powerful and uplifting novel, a mother and her daughter-in-law bravely leave their troubled marriages and face the challenge of starting over.

When Nichole discovers that her husband, Jake, has been unfaithful, the illusion of her perfect life is indelibly shattered. While juggling her young son, a new job, and volunteer work, Nichole meets Rocco, who is the opposite of Jake in nearly every way. Though blunt-spoken and rough around the edges, Rocco proves to be a dedicated father and thoughtful friend. But just as their relationship begins to blossom, Jake wagers everything on winning Nichole back - including their son Owen's happiness. Somehow, Nichole must find the courage to defy her fears and follow her heart, with far-reaching consequences for them all. 

Leanne has quietly ignored her husband's cheating for decades but is jolted into action by the echo of Nichole's all-too-familiar crisis. While volunteering as a teacher of English as a second language, Leanne meets Nikolai, a charming, talented baker from Ukraine. Resolved to avoid the heartache and complications of romantic entanglements, Leanne nonetheless finds it difficult to resist Nikolai's effusive overtures - until an unexpected tragedy tests the very fabric of her commitments. 

An inspiring novel of friendship, reinvention, and hope, A Girl's Guide to Moving On affirms the ability of every woman to forge a new path, believe in love, and fearlessly find happiness. 

Praise for A Girl’s Guide to Moving On

“Macomber is a master at pulling heartstrings, and readers will delight in this heartwarming story of friendship, love, and second chances. Leanne, Nichole, Rocco, and Nikolai will renew your faith in love and hope. The perfect read curled up in front of the fire or on a beach, it’s as satisfying as a slice of freshly baked bread - wholesome, pleasantly filling, and delicious.” (Karen White, New York Times best-selling author of Flight Patterns)

“Beloved author Debbie Macomber reaches new heights in this wise and beautiful novel. It’s the kind of reading experience that comes along only rarely, bearing the hallmarks of a classic. With characters as warm and relatable as your best friends, it’s a novel of connection, exploring life’s unexpected twists and turns - friendship, betrayal, passion, heartbreak, and healing. The timeless wisdom in these pages will stay with you long after the book is closed.” (Susan Wiggs, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Starlight on Willow Lake

Ok enough

Not as good as the first in this series but enough to give the last one a try.

I couldn’t wait for the book to be over!

The characters Nikolai and Chantel were over the top. The one character in the book traded a cheating husband for a jealous control freak. You got sick of hearing the same thing over and over again from Nikolai. And Chantel the way she talk to the other character when she was upset with her was not OK. If you’re truly her friend, you wouldn’t act the way you did. I could not wait for this book to end. It was torture listening to Nikolai and Chantel
I have loved each and everyone of this authors books but this one was one I could’ve done without.

Love it!!

This book was exactly what I needed! I am recently divorced and I could relate to it 100%. It was like Nicole and LeAnn were the friends I didn't have. It gave me hope. The story was entertaining and yet therapeutic. I highly recommend this for anyone dealing with a divorce.

Loved it!

I loved the story, I honestly didn't expect to enjoy it this that much. Was hesitant at first, but after the second chapter I was so caught up with the story and the narrators voices was absolutely enjoyable.

Too Predictable

Rocco...I want him! A story about Rocco's life would be worth reading!

I'm a 36 yr. old single mom myself and this story is not a "guide to moving on". This is an extremely predictable, fictional story about a woman and her mother-in-law, who eerily have the exact same life experiences. Who also both eerily move from cheating husbands into fairy-tale loves.
