WINNER OF THE 2019 OKRWA INTERNATIONAL DIGITAL AWARDS for BEST CONTEMPORARY NOVEL!
From a Netgalley reader and reviewer:
This author has risen to the top of my favorite authors list in the short time I've been reading her books. Her characters have heart and are uniquely touching in their personalities...Connor and Regina are no different. From the opening paragraph, I was hooked with Regina's Italian family survival guide...being a descendent of that ancestry myself, I completely identified with all her idioms. I was drawn into Regina's emotions and as her heartbreak so eloquently unfolded, deeply felt her pain, mental and physical.It has been a very long time since I have experienced the type of build up and anticipation as I did towards Connor and Regina's union, by that time, the author had created an emotional investment in this couple...as well, she garnered through her character mannerism descriptives...every move, stretch of a sleeve cuff, rubbing of the back of knuckles, the feel that I was watching live action in my mind's eye...and yet, she left a lot to my mind's own interpretation, which I greatly appreciate in an author. I feel if an author is skilled in her storytelling, she doesn't need to spell out every scene's nuance, the reader gleans that easily enough.As has become the norm for Ms Jaeger's books, I cannot wait for the next one to be released.

Through her books, she's created the families she wanted as that lonely child.
