Jesse and Emma fell in love as teenagers. They shared “first love,” a love that they thought would be forever. They married, they traveled, and then he took one last trip that ended in a helicopter crash. He was presumed dead.

Emma grieved, but eventually she went on with her life. She took over Blair Books, her parents’ store in Afton, Massachusetts, something she would never have imagined she would do.

And then she met Sam Kemper again, her friend from high school. Their love was true, too. The kind of love you have as an adult.

Then one day, after the two of them are planning their wedding, they receive the news: Jesse is not dead. He is back!

What will happen to the true love she now has? Will the past love eclipse it? What will Emma do?

They go to the cottage in Maine, the two of them, Jesse and Emma. They explore the past, they look at the present. They remember “the way we were.”

One True Loves made me smile, made me cry a little, and think of movies I loved like “The Way We Were,” when the characters are deeply in love…and then they have to decide what to do about the future. A 5 star read.

    • Definitely! I like how the author makes the characters feel like real people, worrying about “morning breath,” etc., the kind of thing you don’t read in a romance book that often. Thanks for stopping by, Laura.

    • Oh, I know, Mary, I have that same problem. I really love how the characters feel so real, with their little flaws and foibles, and the “normalcy” of those moments. Thanks for stopping by.
