love with a man who would die before the ink was dry on our marriage
But that’s what fate had in store for me. It broke me. I vowed I’d never fall
in love again.
Five years later, fate had one more thing planned. It wanted to play around in
my life again. Its tool? Another blasted stick of gum. Same place, only this
time, it was Jude Baker, a university lecturer, who slipped on the gum.
Despite being a pacifist, Jude wasn’t particularly happy about having gum stuck
to his shoe and made his distaste abundantly clear.
But that stick of gum was the catalyst to a series of events where our paths
would continue to cross. There would be a broken nose, a fractured hand, a cat
on a lead and a crashed corporate Christmas party that would align our hearts
and make me realise that I wanted to be happy again.
But there would also be tears. Many, many tears. Because falling in love
was never easy, especially when you were still in love with another man.
Can someone explain to me what I didn’t like about this book? Oh yeah. The answer is nothing. There is nothing I didn’t not only like but love about this book. One More Thing by Liliana Anderson is the continuing story for Sarah. To be honest, I didn’t read book 1, 47 Things. I’m pretty sure that one would have crushed my insides into dust. Unfortunately now that I’ve read this book, I’m going to have to go back and read it.
One More Thing is just exquisitely written. You will feel every emotion as you read this book. You will cry, that’s a promise. I really love how Lilliana Anderson wrote this story. The characters are so real. I mean like they are like actual people you know in your life. It’s like watching your best friend try and piece their life together after the loss of a spouse. I really and truly loved how excerpts from Tyler’s journal were included. A lot of times I find those bits from previous books tedious, but these excerpts just added to the overall experience of the book. The plot is complex. Lilliana Anderson put so much detail and thought into this story.
One More Thing by Lilliana Anderson is a must read. It was one of my favorites this year and maybe even one that goes on favorites of all time reads. If you don’t have the stomach to read book 1, you will be just fine reading this one standalone. Though, you’re gonna wanna go back and read book 1, or just start there. One More Thing is an amazing, emotional, and breathtaking story.
