Overview

Finding myself a widow at thirty-eight wasn't in my plans. Although if I think about it, my whole life was not part of my plan. It all started when I found out I was pregnant shortly after graduating high school. After we had Bryna, Jack and I got married. Neither of us was able to follow our dreams of college. Nevertheless, all the missed plans and adventures did not matter because we were happy. We did not for one minute regret missing out on the things we would have liked to have done when we were younger.

Before Jack died, he had a plan to change all that. Unfortunately, he was taken from me before he could reveal his plans for our twentieth wedding anniversary adventure. However, thanks to his lifelong friendship with Flynn, Jack's plan was not lost.

Jack may not be able to join me on this adventure, but with the help of my friends, I learn what it really means to seize the day.

Editorial Reviews

Megan Loves Book
Love, love, love! What a unique storyline! This is not your typical romance. Piper lived a beautiful life until the day tragedy struck. And now that things will never be the same again, she needs to pick up the pieces to continue on.

This book is about healing, learning to live beyond tragedy, and making the most of every moment. It was an incredibly unique read and I truly enjoyed every single word.

4.75 stars for storyline
No flames for heat, as this book isn't about that

Meet the Author

Rae Matthews is a Minneapolis, Minnesota native who moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 2002 for a guy, of all things. There she started off as a bartender at a neighborhood bar, eventually moving into telecommunications. Years later she is now a wife and a ‘wicked’ stepmother. It’s a good thing she is a good cook, or they may have tossed her out on her tushy years ago.

Rae is also known for being a bit of a goofball. She loves to see people smile, and doesn’t mind if they are smiling and even laughing at her not with her. Her motto is, “Life is too short to not laugh as much as you can.” Rae regaled her friends with her stories for years, and she loves to tell them, even if her friends didn’t want to hear them. But now Rae is finally ready to share her stories with others.

As time goes by, Rae hopes to find more time to travel and take on new challenges while continuing her joy of telling stories, crafting, cooking and generally just having fun.
