Publisher's Summary

Sarina Mahler thinks she has her life all nailed down: a growing architecture practice in Austin, Texas, and an any-day-now proposal from her loving boyfriend, Noah. She's well on her way to having the family she's hoped for since her mother's death 10 years ago. But with Noah on a temporary assignment abroad and retired Olympic swimmer - and former flame - Eamon Roy back in town asking her to renovate his new fixer-upper, Sarina's life takes an unexpected turn.

Eamon proves to be Sarina's dream client, someone who instinctively trusts every one of her choices - and Sarina is reminded of all the reasons she was first drawn to him back in the day. Suddenly her carefully planned future with Noah seems a little less than perfect. And when tragedy strikes, Sarina is left reeling. With her world completely upended, she is forced to question what she truly wants in life - and in love.

Full of both humor and heartbreak, The One That Got Away is the story of one woman's discovery that, sometimes, life is what happens when you leave the blueprints behind.

Can’t put it down!

Plowed through this book in less than 2 days. Such a fun easy read that I never wanted to put down. Been needing one of these again and very happy it was this book. Wish there was a sequel.

Cute

An adorable story with a very self aware very confident woman...with a hint of self consciousness. REAL. Proof that everyone has their fears and issues, but we have to be brave and take risks! Worth the read!

Bring and Frustrating

This story started out ok but the drama was self imposed, non sense and Frustrating. For an architect with business sense she doesn't seem to know how to read people or their needs. Not to mention she gets lost in her own foolish waiting thoughts.

Chick flick audiobook

Listened to this on a road trip and it was perfectly entertaining and lighthearted. I’ve found that some of the novels are good for listening to fall asleep- this one kept me interested and entertained for a road trip.

Eh

I just didn't feel strongly about any of the three main characters (Sarina, Noah, Eamon) except maybe dislike of the two guys. I didn't understand why Sarina did what she did in the book (leave a 4 year relationship). I was told the reasons and there were occasional moments that did make her choice understandable, but those moments were few. The rather even keel reading of this probably didn't help.

Good Escapism

I recommend this book for anyone who would like a story that keeps you interested and guessing about its outcome. I listened to it on long drives and training runs, so it kept my mind occupied. The reader wasn't as good as some others I've heard, but she didn't detract from the story.

Bad

This book is about a whining girl. Very boring! Big waste of time listening to this book.
