I really liked how there was a book within this book that helped us understand the friendship between Ingrid, Joel, and CeCe. It made the story, as a whole, feel a little lighter because it felt like CeCe was alive for many parts of it. I really liked CeCe’s personality and I loved her relationship with both Joel and Ingrid. I also really liked Joel. I liked how he and Ingrid fell in love and how he was so loyal to her even when she didn’t remain as loyal to him and his family. I struggled to connect with Ingrid though. I wished she would’ve stayed in Port Townsend to deal with her grief and to help all those that were also grieving CeCe. I felt the side story about her dad was unexpected and interesting.

Three friends. Two broken promises. One missing manuscript.
As a senior acquisitions editor for Fog Harbor Books in San Francisco, Ingrid Erikson has rejected many a manuscript for lack of defined conflict and dramatic irony--two elements her current life possesses in spades. In the months following the death of her childhood best friend and international bestselling author Cecelia Campbell, Ingrid has not only lost her ability to escape into fiction due to a rare trauma response, but she's also desperate to find the closure she's convinced will come with Cecelia's missing final manuscript.
After Ingrid jeopardizes her career, she fears her future will remain irrevocably broken. But then Joel Campbell--the man who shattered her belief in happily-ever-afters--offers her a sealed envelope from his late cousin, Cecelia, asking Joel and to put their differences aside and retrieve a mysterious package in their coastal Washington hometown.
Honoring Cecelia's last request will challenge their convictions and test their loyalties, but through it all, will Ingrid and Joel be brave enough to uncover a twice-in-a-lifetime love?
