Book Description

Charlotte ‘Charley’ Southard’s life has hit rock bottom. She is fired from her job at a top law firm in Calgary, she hasn’t had a lasting relationship in years and a recent incident with a declined credit card at the grocery store has just brought her over the edge.

Charley just knows that everything was better when she was with Drew, the popular football player she dated for two years back at university. All her troubles began when they broke up after graduation. So with the help of her best friends, Josh and Heather, Charley sets out to track down the old boyfriend from her past.

But what if Drew is married? What if he doesn’t remember her? And just how far will she have to go to find the love of her life? Not to mention, what if he’s not the Prince Charming she remembers?

In a fast trip to Victoria, British Columbia, Charley Southard discovers the truth about "the one that got away," along with realizing a few unexpected things about herself in the process.

Editorial Reviews


"Another excellent book by Whitney Boyd. One of the reasons In the Stars is so entertaining is because Boyd captures her main character's plight so well. Who hasn't chased after a guy? Who hasn't thought, 'oops...maybe I missed my chance at happiness with this past man? Better go back and get him!' Through every bump in Charley Southard's journey I wanted to shout, 'I've been there! I've felt this!' Charley is such a relatable character, and her honesty and vulnerability along with Boyd's humor make this an excellent read." --Angela Trusty, Ask Angela newspaper columnist

1.0 out of 5 stars What happens???? November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book one star because I can not stand books that don't tie up loose ends. This book abruptly stops and you have absolutely no answers as to what happens?????? Is there a sequel? Even if there is a sequel I'm still mad because of the ending. No closure=not worth reading. Very frustrating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat with a lot of heart October 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
'In the Stars' is a fun addition to the New Adult genre with a story that goes beyond college. It's about life.

Charley Southard is one of those people who thinks she has nothing, but is actually surrounded by treasure. She just can't see it yet.

Recently--and wrongfully--laid off from a job at a law firm, and without a penny to her name, 'In the Stars' starts with Charley in one of those situations we all hope to avoid: too many items at the checkout counter and not enough money to pay for them all. I instantly felt bad for the girl and was glad she had cute best friend Josh to sympathize, yet push her through, all these seemingly insurmountable troubles. Unfortunately Charley is stubborn. Everything would be better if she reunited with an old flame, her college boyfriend Drew. Soon Charley is on the road with a mission that feels doomed from the start. But what does she have to lose?

My favorite sections of In the Stars were the descriptions of Charley's job as a law clerk. I found these parts of the book extremely unique and well done. Also interesting is that the novel takes place in Canada. Perhaps I've been missing out, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of modern fiction in that particular setting and I really liked reading about the landscape, architecture and society of Canada.

I will admit to cringing as Charley headed toward what could be called stalker status as she located and pushed herself on Drew. Oh no, Charley. Nooooooo. At the same time, I could see those exact moments the kind that would make a really fun movie. The author takes you through each moment you told yourself couldn't and shouldn't happen and yet still manages to wrap things up in a realistic and bittersweet way. 'In the Star' is a young book with a wise heart.

This is a story about a girl who has been so busy trying to be a success that she can't see the truth in where her future lies. This is also a story about a guy who has known who his soul mate is for a long time. This guy is not afraid to stick with this girl until she finally 'sees' she loves him. Will he succeed?

Charlotte (Charley) Southhard's life has gone totally out of control. She is fired has been fired from a top notch law firm, and now even her credit cards are being declined. Charlie thinks all her troubles began when she broke up with Drew, her old boyfriend. With the help of her friends Josh and Heather, Charley sets out to track down Drew and get her life back on the track she thinks it should be on. Once Charley finds Drew, she learns the truth about him and herself in the process. Truth can sometimes be a bit of a painful lesson.

This book is very well written. The story flows smoothly and I got so involved in reading it. I started this book today and finished it today. For those who hate sex scenes or cursing in your books, there is none of either.

The characters in the story are believable for the most part. Our main character, Charley, is a bit immature and it takes a lightening bolt to grow her up really fast. Josh, oh we have the perfect man here ladies! I have never met a 'perfect' man, but if there is one like Josh out there, it is one lucky girl who catches him.

I recommend this book for teens on up. Enjoy your read.

This was the third book by Whitney Boyd I've read and it is my favourite! So funny, thoughtful and entertaining, it made me laugh out loud and at the end I even cried. This is a romantic comedy I would recommend to everyone! The one that got away is such a relevant theme... every woman out there needs to read this!

I enjoyed the story but when you finally feel like the story is getting good it just ends. Glad I borrowed it instead of buying it.

Good clean reading. A little humor and a lot of suspense. Too often we lose what we value the most through our inability to see what is right in front of us.
