Publisher's Summary

The final book in the Something in the Way series, and a USA Today best seller.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

A home he built us on the unshakable foundation we fought for.

A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.

A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore....

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects, and one I don't know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I'm afraid I'll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

But I'll beg the heavens for just one thing more.

Loved the series.

Beautifully written by Jessica Hawkins. Character depth and plot was fantastic. I have only written a few reviews. But for this series I had to. Narrators are beyond words and together they make the story come alive. I felt as if I was watching a movie while I was driving to work.

Something missing

I loved the series, I just wish the final book had Manning’s voice and point of view as well. I felt like that was really missing, and took away from some of the emotion .

Great love story

I loved this entire series. The only thing I felt was missing in the last book of the series was Manning’s point of view. I loved how the other books provided both Lake and Manning’s point of view. Would have loved to heard his also.

Disappointed

First I have to say I love Andi Arnt she’s an amazing narrator!! That being said I was disappointed I didn’t get to hear Manning’s point of view at all in this story. It was just ok for me.

Loved the series!

You have to read the entire see! This was my first Jessica Hawkins story & I enjoyed reading it. I liked that I couldn’t figure out what was next.
I will listen to anything Andi Arndt reads! She is fantastic. My son is going to college next year and he wants to do voice acting so we have talked about how amazing she is!

Worth every page

The entire series had me binge listening for days.
I became so invested in their journey and wanted nothing but the best for Lake and Manning. Thank you for a great read with an even better ending.

Loved, but the least fav of the series

5 stars: The books / series impressed on me and i will recommend and reread this title.
I tell others about the story and or book(s) in regular conversation to expose the author.
I give my full support to this book.

I do not judge books based on the actor(s) / narrator(s) only the story line and content.
Thank you for your time, but to reinforce, i would reread and recommend this specific title.

I only give 5 stars in my top 10% of books.
