Goodreads: One minute, Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life in ways she never could have imagined.
Tegan is consumed by grief, not to mention her anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she's hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime.
From the bustling markets of Thailand to the flavors of Italy to the ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape the tragedy and search for forgiveness. But they soon learn that grief follows you no matter how far away you run, and that acceptance comes when you least expect it.
Kritters Thoughts: Tegan has a life altering accident change the course of her life and she must learn how to live in her new normal. Her husband and her made a bucket jar of things to do and places to visit and she decides to embark on three of them to help heal from this accident.
I absolutely adored how the author weaved in stories from their past in different ways, they were all creative and worked so well. It was also helpful that these chapters were nicely labeled with their relation to the accident as that is the pivotal moment in this couple's lives.
Be warned - I cried my tears out for the back half of this book. It just went somewhere I couldn't predict and I loved where it went. I am so glad I was finishing this book in the comfort of my home so I could just cry it out!
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
