Too heartbroken to even consider falling in love again, Emma stays distracted by school and work. Until she meets Landon and, for the first time ever, finds herself believing she might actually have a future with someone. But when Deegan Burke—the man responsible for all of Emma’s heartache—gets out of prison early, Emma is suddenly confronted by her worst fears. And when faced with choices she never thought she’d have to make, Emma discovers that the only person she really wants by her side is the last person she ever expected.
My Book Review:
The Next Best Thing is a compelling story that will pull at the heartstrings and stir the soul.
In The Next Best Thing, author Wendi Nunnery continues the emotional story of Emma Fraser, whose traumatic coming of age story was introduced in The Best Kept Secret. Set in Georgia, it is four years later, and Emma and best friend Andy are now in college, each struggling to move forward in their lives after the death of Jesse, Emma's first love and Andy's brother.
The story has a mixture of rawness, tenderness, and painful reality that will captivate the reader as Emma and Andy's journey into adulthood unfolds. The author takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride as they follow Emma and Andy as they navigate the slippery slope of life's experiences, and come to terms with their shared traumatic past, so that they could move forward with their lives.
While The Next Best Thing has its share of heartbreaking moments, it is a powerful and beautifully written story in which the author thoughtfully delves into the importance and reality of heartbreak, grief, guilt, forgiveness, strength, maturity, growth, hope, and love.
The Next Best Thing is a realistic, down to earth, and emotional story that will stay with you for a very long time.
