“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” - Unknown

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.

“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”

If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.

This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

Maria’s Review

➦If you are looking for an inspirational, spiritual kind of read, then look no further – you will find that and much more in this novel by Amy Harmon. I love Amy Harmon’s poetic writing, especially her fantasy books. This read was no different for me – I was living inside this book for while and found myself waking up during the night just so I could read it. 😀

➦It’s a story of three friends, one man and two women. I know what you’re thinking, a love triangle? Not quite. Without giving much away I will say that their situation is very complicated. The heroine of this novel has to step aside when her best friend stakes a claim on a guy she loves. She loves them both, in fact, and thus she wants nothing but for them to be happy. 

➦One thing I absolutely love about Amy Harmon’s characters is that they are not just good or bad. They are very human and they are flawed. You can’t help but sympathize with those characters who’ve messed up and done questionable things. This book speaks of suicide awareness and it was very interesting but at the same time haunting to read these stories. 

➦I guess may be I’m not a very spiritual person (*hangs head*) but some parts of the book, those paranormal parts, kept taking me out of the story a bit. But that’s totally on me, I know a lot of people love those parts dearly. But I’m always this way with my romances, either pnr all the way or nothing. 😀 But anywhatever, I loved loved loved this story and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inspirational read. Be prepared for an angsty ride!!! SEALED!
