I received this free eARC novel from the author. This is my honest review.

This book made me tear up so much from happiness, laughing and sadness. I don't know how Tammy Falkner does it, but she creates the most wonderful, beautiful books that resonate with readers everywhere and puts so much emotion and FEELS. Her novels are so real, so life-like that it makes me feel like everything is happening to me, personally.

This book is definitely one of my top 10 novels of 2020, and it is one that I know I will be re-reading again and again.

There are three narrations in this book: Aaron, Bess, and Eli. At first I was confused. I didn't know who was going to end up with who or how it was going to end. But it wasn't about that. Each character had their own story to tell and Tammy Falkner did a wonderful job giving each of those characters their own voice and showing the struggles all three went through. And as long as you make sure to see who is narrating the chapter, the story will flow smoothly and it doesn't feel like it jerks you around at all.

Unlike the first book, I CAN relate to some aspects of this novel, so seeing that relationships struggle, the sizzle dies, shows that one can overcome those issues if they just try. That's uplifting and hopeful.

Aaron is a fantastic dad. You can tell just by looking at his kids and how they behave. Bess needed to grieve, and she got that chance during this summer everyone was at the camp. And Eli needed to trust again. I cannot put into words how REAL this book is.

Again, Pops, Mr. Jacobson, stole the show of this novel. I think as long as there are books in this series and Pops is there (he better be...I'll throw a fit), he will always steal the show. The scene at the bridge? I could not contain my uncontrollable laughter and 100% could not read for a few minutes because I was laughing to tears. But he also has his moments where he made me cry for the seriousness and emotional aspect that he brings to this novel.

I feel very honored to have gotten this eARC novel and was able to read this early, and this book is the exact example on why I one-click Tammy Falkner's novels, even if there is no synopsis. I know she will knock it out of the park and leave me feeling every sort of emotion out there. I'm not sure if there will be another book in this series, but I am 100% going to snatch it, or any other work, up by this author in the future!

Read it! You won't be disappointed!
