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?

This book started out with a bang but got a little slow towards the end. Libby was having the worst day of her life and comes home to tell her husband and he gives her even more bad news, that changes their marriage forever. She has to work through her fears and deal with her problems. She wants to die in peace, but when she goes to an island that her mother loved, she meets a man and it changes how she feels about life. Those who like romance books will probably like this more than I did. I Rated This Book: 3/5 Stars ***
