“Sarah is my best friend in the entire world, and however much and for however long it kills me, I’ll never silently, secretly hold up signs to tell Jack O’Mara, without hope or agenda, that to me he is perfect, and that my wasted heart will always love him.”
Is love at first sight real? Laurie is on a crowded bus, headed home after a long day at a job she hates when she spots a man reading at the bus stop. He looks up, they make eye contact, and sparks fly. “It’s a look of Hello you, and Oh My God, it’s you, and I can’t believe how good it is to see you, all in one.” The bus lurches away; a missed connection.
For the next year, Laurie searches for this stranger. She dreams about him, longs for him, and vows to find him. And find him she does. Except he’s on the arm of her best friend, Sarah. Unbeknownst to Sarah, her new boyfriend Jack is the man her best friend has been hopelessly in love with for the past year.
Over the next ten years, we follow Laurie, Sarah, and Jack on an emotional rollercoaster. From friendship and relationships to finding happiness and learning to heal, this book will warm your soul like a big mug of coffee in the wintertime.
