It’s been seven years since Chelsea Martin embarked on her yearlong post-college European adventure. Since then, she’s lost her mother to cancer and watched her sister marry twice, while Chelsea’s thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one annoyingly competent coworker, Jason Knightley, her status as most talented fundraiser is unquestioned.
When her introverted mathematician father announces he’s getting remarried, Chelsea is forced to acknowledge that her life stopped after her mother died, and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love, or enjoying her life was on her gap year. Inspired to retrace her steps–to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France, and Marcelino in Italy–Chelsea hopes that one of these three men who stole her heart so many years ago, can help her find it again.
From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the very last place she expected.
This was a fun book! RomCom + guys a plenty + depth and emotional growth of character!
Chelsea lost a part of her when her mother died. 7 years later and the announcement of her father remarrying woke Chelsea up-realizing she’s been unhappy.
She starts to retrace her steps and visit past lovers to find herself and happiness. Along the way – an annoying coworker follows her for a business deal.
I think the revisiting past boyfriends-especially 7 years later was a silly idea. Sounds like Chelsea just needed the trip! But the author did a great job of showing Chelsea growing and realizing what she needed to be happy.
This is my first book by this author but it won’t be my last! Plus it’s been fun to buddy read this too. And the audio is perfect with all the accents of the men! I was sucked right in and couldn’t get enough.
