This was a great story and I really enjoyed it. I loved the plot and the pace. This book grabbed your interest and didn’t let go until the end. I laughed at times and choked up at times while reading this. I loved Liz and Brett’s relationship. The characters seemed realistic to me with their faults and problems. I felt this was a very heartwarming story. I did feel bad for Liz that she closed herself off from the family she loved because her sister and sister in law was pregnant and so much baby talk even though she was happy for her family. I felt bad for Liz how her ex cheated on her in their bed what a butthole and then Grant leaves her waiting at the station. I loved Liz and Grant together. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.
