“Dying is easy. It’s not dying that’s hard.”


How terrifying it has to be to have your worse fears come to life! This is exactly what happened to Margaret Jacobsen.

Margaret, a young woman, has everything to live for. She loves her boyfriend, Chip and she's about to start an amazing job. Anybody who knows Margaret knows she's driven. Then, a horrible event will destroy all her dreams and aspirations. Maggie will have to ask herself, is life worth living?

I read The Things You Save In A Fire, my first book by Katherine Center and I absolutely loved it. It was a 5 star for me. I couldn't believe this was my first book by this author and I immediately had to download this one.

There are so many things I loved about How to Walk Away. There's the banter, Maggie's sister Kitty, who's by the way, my favorite secondary character. And then, there's Ian. Oh Ian, so many things I loved about you. From your Sottish brogue to your amazing connection with Maggie.

Katherine Center has a knack for making up characters that I wish I could meet. I wish I could've helped Maggie. My emotions were all over the place. I didn't want for her to give up but I also understood how losing it all can devastate someone. It's so hard to start over! Maggie had more than enough reasons to not want to.

“I wasn’t a person who failed things.
I was a person who aced things.”


My one complaint will be the scene closer to the end. It was too cookie cutter for me. Too over the top if you know what I mean.

How to Walk Away had a winning combination. Realistic characters and dialogue. I can't wait to see what Katherine Center delivers next.

“When you don’t know what to do for yourself, do something for somebody else”


Cliffhanger: No
