These are my Happily Ever After Novel Thoughts…
This book was interesting and intriguing as Kate deals with the fact her best friend is missing. She still feels like Willow is still alive and so she’s reluctant to move on with her life. But, the moment she does start to live again, some people start tearing her down, making her even more self conscience.
Struggling to make sense of things with her life and River, thinking maybe everything is getting back to normal, she starts to feel guilty and thinking she sees Willow everywhere.
I can sympathize with the way Kate feels with Willow being gone. The difference between Kate and I though, is Willow is missing and my friend was in a car accident. I image it’s much harder with the uncertainty of life or death. My friend died a week after the accident while still in the hospital. It was a sudden death because he was improving. I still think I see him places and he shows up in my dreams but I know for sure he’s dead unlike Kate and Willow.
You want a book that will give you feels? Want intrigue? Want angst? Happiness?
Then grab this book! I can’t wait for the next one!! Being the nature of this story, I can’t guarantee a Happily Ever After, but I guarantee a great story.

It’s been six months since Willow left Kate Bergman’s college dorm room to go for an evening run…and never came back.
Everybody else who loved Willow is ready for closure, but something deep inside Kate says that her dearest childhood friend is somehow still alive. And that obstinate conviction is alienating all the people Kate loves most.
Even River McEwan is upset with her, and that’s the deepest blow of all. River was Willow’s boyfriend, but the three of them—Kate, Willow, and River—have been friends since childhood.
When a professor assigns Kate and River to be partners in a joint research project, Kate hopes it’s a chance to tear down the barrier between them, but instead faces an even bigger challenge. As she and River meet over the school project, their renewed friendship flares into something more.
Soon River is enticing Kate to do things she’s never dreamed of. But while she can’t imagine giving up River, Kate doesn’t know whether she can—or even should—stop wondering whether Willow will ever come home….
About Emma Tharp
Emma was raised in upstate NY. Being an only child, she spent a great deal of time alone dreaming up characters that would keep her company on long family road trips. Putting her writing on the back burner, she went to college and became a chiropractor. After spending 14 years healing patients, Emma decided—with the help of her amazingly supportive husband—to use the creative side of her brain and let her characters come to the page.
If she’s not writing, Emma can be found at the gym, one of her kids sporting events, Starbucks, or at a live music event.
A perfect day for Emma would be spent at her lake house with her husband, two ginger-haired children, and Vizsla, reading a book and drinking a large cup of coffee (or wine) with music playing in the background.
