Review: The One that Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

The One that Got Away
by Melissa Pimentel

Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren't.
Now, ten years later, Ruby is single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There's barely time for a trip to England for her little sister's wedding. And there's certainly not time to think about what it will be like to see Ethan again, who just so happens to be the best man.
But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can't help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago. Because there is nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past. 

Kritters Thoughts:  Is there one person in your life that things didn't work out and you wonder where they are or what could have been?  This book is completely about the what if life had gone a different route and these two characters get to meet up and maybe discuss why it didn't and maybe it could now!

Ruby and Ethan dated briefly and things combusted and now they are brought together to celebrate the wedding of his best friend to her sister and they will get the chance to confront the past.  They both had secrets and it was interesting when and how they shared them and the reaction to those secrets and maybe those secrets would have changed the past.  

I absolutely adored this book.  It reminded me of my favorite romantic comedy movie and I loved having these Americans in a Scottish town making ruckus and causing drama in a small town!  If you don't read books that happen abroad, be warned that it does happen abroad, but it is all Americans so there aren't too many abroad terms and jokes and such. 

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from St Martin's Press.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
