Hannah and Will Abbott define the American dream: two kids, a home in the suburbs, and a seemingly perfect marriage. But discontent lurks under the surface of their outwardly happy lives as each Hannah and Will suspect the other of infidelity. When they independently consult divorce attorneys, the conflict escalates and Hannah flees with the children against a court order. This snap decision starts a social media firestorm and, suddenly, the Abbott divorce is big news.
With family stress and legal fees rising, Will and Hannah accept an invitation to appear on a reality television show for divorcing couples. During filming on the beautiful island of St. John, the Abbotts must decide once and for all: can their love survive their past?
Reading this book was my first introduction to author Leanne Treese, and boy am I glad that I was introduced to her! In her debut novel, Leanne Treese writes a book full of heartbreak and loss as well as a book about finding one’s way through life, no matter what has been thrown at them. I listened to this book on audio and from the first minutes of this book, I was hooked! I loved every one of the characters and the story that Leanne Treese told about each of their lives. This book was so wonderfully descriptive, I genuinely felt like I was part of the book and living right alongside the characters. I cannot say enough about how good this book was! Every minute I could, I was listening to the book, and I must admit that I did not want the book to end. I wanted to know more about the characters’ lives and “what happened to them after.” I am so glad that I was introduced to Leanne Tresse and hope that she writes more books in the future!!
