I just randomly went and picked a book off my shelf a few weeks back and I was so happy that this fall beauty fell into my hands.
Such a sad, tragic love story that has its moments of pure joy along with its moments of utter misery when you see how the pain has hit each individual character of this book.
Abby seems to have the makings of a perfect life - the handsome husband, the beautiful daughter, the house - basically the cookie cutter perfect life. Not all things are as perfect as what they seem when you are on the outside looking in.
But what if that "perfect" family came at a price? At the downfall and heartache of your best friend?
Abby always wanted Ryan but....he was in love with Lauren - Abby's best friend.
But one day Lauren took an amazing opportunity and went to see the world and photograph some of the most amazing waterfalls...but little did she know that her "best friend" would take advantage of her boyfriend in his time of need and rope him in by...you guessed it...getting pregnant.
How could Lauren deal with that? She couldn't go back and watch their lives unfold together so she stayed away for what seemed like an eternity.
One day she came back...Abby was in the midst of a breakdown...what will happen at this end of this mess? Will Lauren get her lost love back? Will Abby get better and keep her family in tact?
Every tragic love story needs to have a drink to go along with the rough times and that wine is known as Scandelicious! Deep, bold and sultry!
I really enjoyed the story and thought the characters wove an interesting web and I give it 5 wine glasses!
