Joseph Carter seems to be a bit of a player, he appears to have stood up 3 women on Valentine’s Day. 

But as we meet Siobhan, Miranda and Jane and date Joseph it just feels like he is in love with all of them and they are falling fast for him. But this book isn’t what it seems. It is about love and relationships but it’s also about grief and life. There are a lot of good things in relationships but there are also difficult things and barriers and past experiences. 

I kind of read someone’s review and read that there was a big twist near the end that changes your view on Joseph. And this story isn’t at all what you think it is. And damn at 86% you broke my dang heart into teeny tiny pieces. Be aware this book does some major weaving so if you get lost easily pay attention. There are a lot of clues if you look but it’s not as straightforward as you think.

I am pretty sure I am with Siobhan that I am scared to miss out on life and to be left behind. So all the talk about that just went right into all my little feel buckets and made them turn over. I can’t get them balanced again. I am scared to leave things undone or my kids or my husband. I don’t want to be the reason my kids have issues later in life cause I said the wrong thing or I am gone. Silly to think things that aren’t happening but I am a mom and I worry those things. And my kids keep having me watch the Adam Project which is making me cry too. ugh don’t lose a parent, I don’t recommend. Just don’t lose anyone lets keep everyone.

❓Do you like books with big plot twists?

Thank  you berkleyromance and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

Three women who seemingly have nothing in common find that they’re involved with the same man in this smart new rom-com by Beth O’Leary, bestselling author of The Flatshare.

Siobhan is a quick-tempered life coach with way too much on her plate. Miranda is a tree surgeon used to being treated as just one of the guys on the job. Jane is a soft-spoken volunteer for the local charity shop with zero sense of self-worth.

These three women are strangers who have only one thing in common: They’ve all been stood up on the same day, the very worst day to be stood up–Valentine’s Day. And, unbeknownst to them, they’ve all been stood up by the same man.

Once they’ve each forgiven him for standing them up, they let him back into their lives and are in serious danger of falling in love with a man who seems to have not just one or two but three women on the go….

Is there more to him than meets the eye? And will they each untangle the truth before they all get their hearts broken?
