Goodreads:  After discovering her mother’s secret life, Cara doesn’t have much faith in marriage.

So when the love of her life, Simeon, proposes, she struggles to say ‘I do.’ She adores him, but why risk the perfect relationship by signing on a dotted line that could ruin everything? If her parents’ marriage taught her anything, it was that a gold ring doesn’t equal happiness, and she has no desire to follow in their dysfunctional footsteps.

But maybe there’s a bigger picture after all. When a tragic accident brings yet more truths to the surface, Cara is forced to question everything she believes—and fears—about long-term love. And the answers aren’t obvious…

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and I would suggest starting at book one because you will lose a lot of character development if you skip ahead to this one.  

Cara is living a great life with Simeon and early in the book he proposes and she hesitates due to her views on marriage.  She likes the life they currently have and is nervous to make any changes.  An extreme accident happens which makes her really rethink everything, so in this book she has some big decisions to make.  

I enjoyed this book more than the first and enjoyed Cara as a character more in this one than the first book.  I appreciated Cara's journey in this book and felt as though she made big changes.  

Although this book was significantly shorter than the first, I think the author made a good decision but limiting the amount of characters in this story and instead the story was told through Cara and her friend Beth, but the story really focused on Cara and the things she was going through in this book.  

The only thing I questioned about this book after completing was the title.  It didn't affect me enjoying the book, but I wish the postcards had been more prevalent than they were, it was snuck in, but I wanted more!

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