I was so excited to read this because I enjoyed Arranged so very much. The premise is intriguing, but I have to say that I was a little let down with how the story ends.

It seemed a little rushed as though the author just wanted to complete the story. After building up the story so well it somewhat just collapsed towards the end. My love for Catherine McKenzie is not ‘hidden’ so it could be just because I loved the story and wanted more. However, I'd still recommend it for the pure love of Catherine's storytelling.

 

I just loved some of the lines from this book:

“I stare off into space for a minute. "I just wish my life would go back to the way it was." "Why?" "Because I was happy then. Things weren't perfect, but still, I knew where I fit. I knew where I was going." "And you don't feel that way anymore?" "No. I feel kind of...lost in the middle of my own life, if that makes any sense.” 

“It seemed like almost nothing had happened, but that almost nothing changed everything for me.” 

“Life doesn’t wait. You have to make it happen. You have to live it while it’s happening around you. Life moves on.” 

 

My rating is 3 stars.

Emma Tupper is a dedicated lawyer with a bright future. But when she takes a month-long leave of absence to go on an African vacation, she ends up facing unexpected consequences. After she falls ill and spends six months trapped in a remote village thanks to a devastating earthquake, Emma returns home to discover that her friends, boyfriend, and colleagues thought she was dead--and that her life has moved on without her. As she struggles to re-create her old life, throwing herself into solving a big case for a client and trying to reclaim her beloved apartment from the handsome photographer who assumed her lease, everyone around her thinks she should take the opportunity to change. But is she willing to sacrifice her job, her relationships, and everything else she worked so hard to build?
