“Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance. Maybe everything happens for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back. But there are secrets afoot in this small southern town. On the peaceful surface of Hideaway Lake, Annajane discovers that the past is never really gone. Even if there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness might be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy lake town might be in her future.”
This is my favorite book ever. I don’t think I’ve read another book that has struck me like this book has. It starts out with Annajane Hudgens at her ex-husbands funeral. If that doesn’t grab your attention, what can? So many questions flooded my mind immediately. Why are they divorced? Who’s he getting married to? Did someone cheat? Do they have any kids? Who is the new wife? I needed to keep reading to find out. I finished this book in two days. I couldn’t put it down. This story was so angsty and emotional, but showed love in its purest form. I would read this book over and over and over again. Mary Kay Andrews is one of my favorite authors, so I might have a favoritism towards her, but anyone who can read would love this book.
