Dear Mr. Hemingway,
Love is in the air, and it feels like Valentine’s Day… in the beginning of May. Because of this, I have to share with you the most sprightly and heartwarming book. It Had To Be You by Georgia Clark has all the “feels” and I literally can’t stop smiling. Love almighty love is the theme here, and Clark delivers a five star tale blending a sprinkle of Modern Love with a dollop of Love Actually. This twenty-first century romantic comedy is a ray of sunshine and I can’t wait for the world to read it.
Liv and Eliot Goldenhorn have been married for decades. Their New York wedding planning company, In Love in New York is THE place to go for the ultimate wedding experience. One night, Liv finds out that her husband had a heart attack while away, and died. Soon after, Liv discovers that not only did her husband/business partner die, but that he left his half of the company to his GIRLFRIEND, Savannah (excellent time for your jaw to drop). Why on Earth is he trying to bring these two women together after his death?
Now that you have the backdrop of the story, let me continue with what happens next. Liv is baffled when Savannah moves to New York to take on her “half “of the wedding business, and so begins their unexpected journey as business owners and women trying to discover love after loss. To enrich this story further, Clark brings in a cast of characters with their own unique love challenges that all link back to Liv, Savannah and In Love In New York.
It Had To Be You is a must read for anyone looking for love,hope and a happily ever after. LGBTQ themes, diversity, and romance were lovingly woven together to showcase the power of love. Clark magically melded together an incredible ensemble of characters that offered a different point of view for each new chapter. The five storylines were distinct in their own quirky way and I was completely obsessed with each and every one of them. As a woman in my 40’s, I personally relished reading about Clark’s characters my age and even older. It is so refreshing to see more mature women and men in romance books. This writer truly knows how to tap into the human heart and I look forward to more books written by her.
It Had To Be You is a treasure that belongs on everyone’s bookshelf. It is a well needed hug after a long day kind of book and I can’t encourage you enough to read and savor this all inclusive love story.
Love and Happiness My Friend!
