Emmy Everett is reluctantly heading home to New York, the site of her own failed romance, for her brother Josh’s wedding. She has spent the last three years in a fishing town in Rhode Island and, having little to show for it, she doesn’t particularly want to answer the questions she is sure to face about her (ex)-fiancé, her (questionable) career choices, and her (unknown) future. But she is still shocked when her typically resolute brother Josh confesses he is having doubts about his imminent marriage and that he may actually be in love with another woman. Then he asks Emmy the hardest question of all: what do I do now?

With seventy-two hours until the wedding, Emmy embarks with Josh on a road trip to help him find this mystery woman and to answer some long-overdue questions about who he wants to spend his life with. It isn’t only Josh who has some lessons to learn. Along the way, Emmy discovers some undeniable truths about what she wants from her own life, and she begins to realize that perhaps her own happy ending is not as far away as it seems.

    " I just grabbed this at the library - who could resist this title? Delightful book. Frustrating that this is her first, and recently published - how long will I have to wait for another? "

    " I picked this up in a South Beach bookstore when on my honeymoon basically because it had a favorable blurb by Melissa Bank, one of my favorite girl authors who writes about complicated relationships, and I was not disappointed. The main character, Emmy, goes home for her brother Josh's wedding, and is not looking forward to it, basically because she has ran away from her life and her now ex-fiance, and is not exactly living up to her career dreams. Once there, she is quite shocked when her with-it brother is having doubts about his imminent marriage, and she embarks on a journey wiht him to seek out a mystery woman from his past. Of course, Emmy learns a lot about herself on the way, and about her brother, her family, and what the future holds for her. I remember thinking, "Wow. This is exactly how I felt before I met Kevin. This book gets what it's like to be 20-something and lost, unsure, and searching." I was enthralled! "
