It’s Evie’s birthday and the start of a year she’ll never forget. An emotional story of love, friendship and grabbing life by the horns. 
Evie’s job has always been her safe haven. As a librarian in the little town of Becton she loses herself in books – after all it’s far easier to read about other people’s problems than set about solving her own. 

Then, one birthday, everything is turned upside down. A mysterious parcel containing a beautiful book with a poignant inscription arrives for Evie. It’s the beginning of a new chapter for Evie and she’s inspired to try and find her real mother. 

Evie’s search leads her to meet handsome author Noah Jones. Charming and intelligent, Noah seems the perfect catch but what Evie doesn’t realise is that he is hiding something – a key to Evie’s past. 

As Evie gets closer to Noah and discovering her mother, she must take a giant leap of faith. Can she embrace the new and make this her year of taking chances? And if she does, will she get her heart broken?


Evie works as a librarian and her life is wonderful except that one thing-she doesn’t know her birth parents. Every birthday it hits her hard, but this year is going to be different. A mysteriously appeared book gave her the inspiration to start searching for her mom. Evie has a fantastic foster mom and great friends and she also has a crush on a guy who she saw 8 months ago, but that’s about to change when he comes to the town due to his work. What will the year of taking chances bring to Evie?

It’s the third book by the author and I’ve loved each and single book. I enjoyed the writing style and how the characters were brought to life. The story has wonderful plot, relatable characters and of course in addition to that it gives you all kind of emotions from grinning to balling your eyes out. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would totally recommend it.
