Almost Missed You is a riveting story of a mother’s love, a husband’s betrayal, secrets that can’t be kept, and the distance between what’s meant to be and what might have been.

“Fans of Liane Moriarty will adore Jessica Strawser.”— Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year

Everyone has always known that Violet and Finn were meant to be, and when their son Bear is born, he completes their perfect happy family. So no one is more surprised than Violet when Finn disappears during their beach vacation—taking Bear with him. Suddenly, Violet is in her own worst nightmare, having shared her life with a man she never really knew at all.

“Startling.”Library Journal

Caitlin and Finn have been best friends since they were young—but she’s grown close with Violet too. When Finn and Bear show up at her doorstep, on the run from the authorities, Caitlin faces an impossible choice: help her oldest friend while hurting another, or risk damaging truths about her own family coming to light…

“Strawser’s exploration of marriage, its expectations, and motherhood [is] spot-on, making for an absorbing read.” —Publishers Weekly
