Lia Townsend is expecting a trip to Hawaii for her fifth wedding anniversary. Instead, her husband, Jake, walks out on her. Out of the blue. Devastated, Lia vows to win back Jake and the perfect life they shared.

Because it was perfect, wasn’t it?

As Lia searches for the truth behind Jake’s departure, the cracks in the shiny varnish begin to show. And once she uncovers his secret, all that she once knew and believed in crumbles.

Lia’s eccentric mother, her best friend, and two vastly different men each pull her in new directions, and Lia attempts to push past the pain and start anew.

But Jake isn’t gone for good. When an accident rocks the lives of their best friends, Lia and Jake are thrown together. Will Lia choose to salvage her old life with the man who broke her heart – or was everything they shared an illusion?


Julie C. Gardner is a lapsed marathon runner and former high school English teacher who traded in her classroom for a writing nook. The author of Lily by Any Other NameLetters for Scarlet, and its prequel Guest List, Julie lives in Southern California with her husband, two children, and three dogs. When she’s away from her computer, she can be found with a good book, a glass of wine, or a pair of running shoes. Her best days feature all of the above.
