When successful twenty-nine-year-old Manhattan attorney Emily Haxby ends her happy relationship just as her boyfriend is on the verge of proposing, she can’t explain to even her closest friends why she did it. Somewhere beneath her sense of fun, her bravado, and her independent exterior, Emily knows that her breakup with Andrew has less to do with him and more to do with...her.  

As the holiday season looms and Emily contemplates whether she made a huge mistake, the rest of her world begins to unravel: she is assigned to a multimillion-dollar lawsuit where she must defend the very values she detests by a boss who can’t keep his hands to himself; her Grandpa Jack, a charming, feisty octogenarian and the person she cares most about in the world, is losing it, while her emotionally distant father has left her to cope with this alone; and underneath it all, fading memories of her deceased mother continue to remind her that love doesn’t last forever.

How this brave, original young heroine finally decides to take control of her life and face the fears that have long haunted her is the great achievement of Julie Buxbaum’s marvelous first novel.

    " I just couldn't finish it. I didn't feel any connection to Emily. And her story doesn't seem that catchy to me. Guess maybe this just wasn't my kind of book. "

    " Nothing special, easy reading and without real plot. "

    " This was an okay read. Good, not terrible but also not earth shattering. Sort of your typical, female lost-and-found again story line... cliche at times. But I have been reading some more challenging books lately so I appreciated a change of pace and an easier, lighter read. "
