This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

An absolutely gripping pause resister that will make you laugh and cry and will stay with you forever! A perfect story for summer book-club enjoyment.

Jessie has always known she doesn’t belong, but she thought that would change when she met Adam. But pretending to be someone you’re not isn’t easy...and she’s already cracking under the pressure of keeping her past a secret from Adam’s uptight family. 

Dolly works hard to keep up appearances, but what’s the point of only eating salad when her boyfriend Josh always seems distracted? Dolly is sure he’ll change once they’re married with a family; Josh did say he wanted those things...didn’t he?

Emily couldn’t be happier: She’s got funny, loving parents, and a job she looks forward to. And then her boyfriend Mark proposes...just as some shocking news sends her life spiralling out of control.

Perfect strangers on the first page, Jessie, Dolly, and Emily’s paths will cross in the most unexpected of ways. And as their stories collide, their lives will take a turn you’ll never predict. 

An unforgettable book-club story about love, heartbreak, and life’s unexpected second chances. If you love Jojo Moyes, Nancy Thayer, and Mary Alice Monroe, you will adore this summer pause resister.

Good Story

Starts out a bit slow, but is necessary for the story. After all the characters are introduced, it is a page turner and, yes, you need some tissues.

stick with it, it's worth it!

I did not think I would be able to finish this book but it's a slow burner. beautifully written with the ability to move you to tears. It's one of those books that will leave you wanting more with a real desire to know what the future has in store for the main characters.
