Goodreads:  Everyone’s expecting her to walk down the aisle.
But something is telling her to run.

Emma Moon's mother thinks it's acceptable to miss her only daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner for a work obligation. Her father left when she was six months old. Emma hasn't exactly been raised to be a happily-ever-after kind of girl.

So when her anxieties get out of hand, Emma and her best friend, Liv, decide to take a road trip to San Francisco, find her long-lost father, and put her family issues to rest.

But her quest for the truth stirs up events and emotions she didn’t expect. The urge to run away may just be a part of Emma’s genetic makeup, because she’s growing more and more tempted to do just that…

Kritters Thoughts:  Emma Moon knows she came from an atypical family and she thinks that it affects the person she would be in her future relationships and a week before her wedding she is doubting everything and decides to search to find the father that left when she was young to see if she can be a good married partner.

I loved the mix in each chapter of lawyer tidbits and how the things she learned in law school affected the person she has become and I think she has a lack of trust from her schooling and profession.  

I also loved the journey of finding her mother and learning about her mother through the journey.  I appreciate when a child doesn't really know their parent until they delve into the decisions they made as the child was young and I loved seeing Emma's eyes open as she almost got to really know her mom.

I loved the combo of wedding drama and family drama.  This book was a fun ride into someone else's personal life.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
