While Samuel enjoys a celebrity life in New York, Kaye remains in their hometown of Lyons, Colorado, running her PR agency and chatting daily with Samuel’s family, the beloved Cabrals—first-generation Mexican-Americans who have embraced Kaye as their own.
But when Samuel returns for his sister’s wedding with his new love interest, stunning editor Caroline Ortega , the gloves are stripped off. Kaye is determined to unearth the reasons behind the death of their marriage and why two people who lived to love each other were driven apart.
She discovers startling revelations about Samuel, about life…and about herself.
I received an Arc copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Kaye and Samuel are childhood sweethearts, she's like a daughter to Samuels parents Sophie an Alfonso. after Kaye and Sam are married, Sam decides he doesn't want to be married anymore and moves to New York. Kaye follows him and something happens while she's there and she comes home and files for divorce.
Several years later Samuel is a successful writer, and his book The Water Sirens is being turned into a film. Is it coincidence that the lead character Neelie Nixie is very similar to Kaye. That's not all Samuels sister Dani is getting married to Angel and Samuels coming back to town for the wedding. And bringing his agent Caroline. Is she just his agent though? She's stuck up and very pretty and Kaye doesn't like her.
Kaye starts questioning herself and all there friends about hers and Samuels relationship, Was she right to push for a divorce so quick? With the help of Kaye's Attorney Jamie, whose a genius. together they do all kinds of pranks to Caroline to try to get her out of the way so Kaye can try and talk to Samuel.
I love this book it was funny in parts that had me laughing out loud. I loved Kaye and Samuels characters. The storyline was different to any I've read. Set in Lyon, Colorado. Kaye and their friends love all the white water sports, and jumping from planes. Their wasn't one bit of the story I didn't like. it had me hooked. This is a must read.
I would give this 4/5 stars.
