Libby Miller has always been an unwavering optimist—but when her husband drops a bomb on their marriage the same day a doctor delivers devastating news, she realizes her rose-colored glasses have actually been blinding her.
With nothing left to lose, she abandons her life in Chicago for the clear waters and bright beaches of the Caribbean for what might be her last hurrah. Despite her new sunny locale, her plans go awry when she finds that she can’t quite outrun the past or bring herself to face an unknowable future. Every day of tropical bliss may be an invitation to disaster, but with her twin brother on her trail and a new relationship on the horizon, Libby is determined to forget about fate. Will she risk it all to live—and love—a little longer?
From critically acclaimed author Camille Pagán comes a hilarious and hopeful story about a woman choosing between a “perfect” life and actually living.
My Thoughts

From the moment I read the synopsis I knew I wanted to read this book but more than that I wanted to like it and I did. I absolutely enjoyed it.

Libby is such a wonderful character and I like how the author portrays her. How she reacts and faces all that is on her way. The same day she finds out she has cancer her husband tells her he is gay. I like how the author manages to present a book that seems to be tragic and not good for the main character Libby but is has humor and is fun. How Libby handles all these situations, Considering the subjects in question, I find this to be a fun read. It felt real to me, the characters, the story. I love the writing and again, considering what the book is about, it was not a heavy read. I think the author accomplishes that balance. A inspirational book which while written in Fiction clearly represents every day struggles and real life situations for real people.

Thank you Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for sending this book in exchange for an honest review.
