A novel about exploring love and life’s path, and taking chances along the way.Emily Saunders has never thought twice about grabbing her passport, rucksack, and camera and trekking across the globe. If there’s an NGO, a study abroad program, or simply the travel itch, Emily’s on the first plane out. Free-spirited, open-minded, and eager…
Sophie Wharton is in control. Whether life is going according to plan or throwing her for a loop, Sophie is determined to remain calm and in charge. It’s no wonder she’s the successful owner of one of Seattle’s most charming cafés, The Cup and the Cake. Her lemon meringue cupcakes, petite French treats, and cappuccinos always leave customers coming back for more. Naturally, her camaraderie of college girlfriends are still thick as thieves a decade later. And it should come as no surprise that she has her own cozy apartment in the hip part of town and grand goals for her future.
Of course Sophie has had her share of rough times, and recently some unexpected surprises have emerged. Her best friend Claire has moved across the state, the demands of her café are mounting, and some major changes among her circle of friends are shaking things up. But it’s nothing Sophie can’t handle.
When it comes to her love life, however, Single Sophie’s at a loss. She approaches it the way she does nearly everything in life—by trying to call all the shots. But love doesn’t work that way, and as Sophie examines her past relationships—thinking back on romantic trysts in Paris; college mistakes; the relationship responsible for the Year of Heartbreak—she must come to accept that love is an unpredictable, untamable, and often unexpected force.
This is the witty and heartwarming conclusion of the When Girlfriends collection, a novel about examining the past, moving forward, and following your heart. It’s a story about friendship, relationships, acceptance, and learning to love again. About what happens when girlfriends find love.
While this Chick Lit is Book #7 in the When Girlfriends collection, it can be read as a stand-alone (and should be read with a sweet treat close by). It is the concluding novel in the collection however, so catching the preceding novels is highly recommended!
