Not my usual genre, but this is a compelling, deep story about how the past can catch up with you even when you try to run from it with everything you have. I found the whole book spellbinding and hard to put down. We know from the very first chapter that the main character, Leigh Anne, is hiding something when she comes back to her hometown after a prolonged absence, but what she's keeping back is really a powerful story in and of itself. When you combine that with the romance she begins with the new man in town, Knox, it creates a kind of perfect storm for the secrets that are coming back to haunt her.

I don't want to get into spoilers because I think they'd truly spoil what is a beautiful, gripping and moving book, but suffice to say that the Trouble With Goodbye is a really powerful tale that's definitely worth a read.

This story had me until 70%.

Leigh Anne (our heroine) is running from her past. She goes to the safety of home and crashes her car minutes from home.
Knox (our hero) rescues her and that is where the story begins.

I thought the build up of this story was pretty decent. The character development was so, so. I didn't understand how Leigh Anne could go from a spoiled, self centered princess to a humble down to Earth character. It's the kind of transition we all love to read but it felt told to me, not organic.

At the 70% mark we get the big reveal which read like a big ole information dump. Then. There is a love scene that just didn't work for me based on the reveal.

I like the premise and the build up but it reads very one dimensional.

The Trouble with Goodbye, gives hope. But not the unrealistic kind of hope that's usually spouted off.
I won't say much, because spoilers suck. But as usual, her character development is spot on and makes you keep reading. I'm happy to know I love her writing even without the paranormal elements which is usually the genre I stick to.

The only reason I almost gave this four stars is that it's a little on the short side. That being said, it was so good I read it in one sitting. And honestly, the story didn't need to be longer to engage the reader and be told.

More of my reviews can be found on my blog @ http://littlepiecesofimagination.blogspot.com/

Look at this pretty cover. It gives us hints of a cute story and that's exactly what The Trouble with Goodbye was - a cute, short, lovable romance novel. With a sweet, honorable and sexy guy as a lead and an opinionated girl as the MC, this will appeal to people who are in need of sugar in little doses in addition to some darker subjects.

QUOTE
After all my begging to feel something, anything, I'm afraid when it finally happens. But this fear is a different kind of fear. It isn't filled with panic and terror or with a desire to run away. (pg 65 of the arc.)

The story. The MC is a young college student and she moved away from home before the time we first meet her. Now she's back for the summer and haunted by some horrible memories that she's trying to suppress. We also have the former best friends, the golden boy aka the former boyfriend and also a new love interest who was really, really swoon-worthy and also a with secrets of his own.

My emotions. I knew from the very beginning what secret Leigh Anne carried with her so it wasn't a surprise for me. It was, however, a surprise how it all came public. I didn't expect that scene. I was very in love with the love interest Knox (I don't know why, but the name Knox reminds me of Johnny Knoxville who is a very, very decent-looking man anddd this is so not the topic here, ha.) since he was incredibly sweet, well-behaved and thoughtful. I liked how he was a good sport in getting to know Leigh Anne as well as asking her out. For me their love wasn't insta love, but the 'in love' part growed a little too quickly into the 'love' part.

"The Trouble With Goodbye" is a well written and engrossing story which will have endless meaning for the real young people living in a real world. So many of my generation have suffered from and had to live with abuse. Sarra Cannon courageously and open-heartedly deals with these themes while writing a ripping-good story. I loved it and I couldn't put it down. It is also full of little tid-bits of wisdom, but no preachy-ness and none of those writing flaws that are so common in books by independent authors. One of the things I loved most about this book is the way we get an eyes-open look at difficult, if well meaning parents. She shows how parents can sometimes crush their new-adult children, without making those parents seem evil in any way, and without encouraging anything but strength and compassion from her readers. Another high point of the story for me was that it is not all about the actual abuse. The characters never go on and on and on about it. It is about being heard and recovering from abuse, and validating one another as adults with a right to our own truth. It is about unconditional love and humanity. Well done, Sarra Cannon. This is exactly the kind of story our world needs. Thank you for having the courage to share yourself through your characters and creating an opportunity for your readers to find validation and start to heal.
Note: definitely not suitable for anyone under seventeen. Better for the twenty years and over group. While this book is certainly not bloody or unpleasant, I feel I should warn anyone who is sensitive that there are sex scenes (but nice ones!), realist descriptions of abuse, and no punches pulled. I think that those struggling to understand friends, siblings or lovers who are recovering from abuse would find this a gentle and enjoyable way to peep into their world.
