It’s only been in the past 3 years that I began reading Patti Callahan Henry’s books- but it feels like I have been reading them all my life. My first one, AND THEN I FOUND YOU, was probably the more serious of the ones I’ve read of hers- considering that it was based on a factual family story. Then last year THE STORIES WE TELL kept me company as I relaxed with a cool drink. And, in June (June 23rd to be exact) it’ll be time for THE IDEA OF LOVE. Having already read it- it’s going to be the right book for the pool and beach- the perfect bit of fluff in your sunshine-day!
And thanks to Patti’s publicists- Traveling With T has a copy to give to a lucky reader!
Summary from Goodreads:
As we like to say in the south: “Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.”
Ella’s life has been completely upended. She’s young, beautiful, and deeply in love—until her husband dies in a tragic sailing accident while trying save her. Or so she’ll have everyone believe. Screenwriter Hunter needs a hit, but crippling writers’ block and a serious lack of motivation are getting him nowhere. He’s on the look-out for a love story. It doesn’t matter who it belongs to.
When Hunter and Ella meet in Watersend, South Carolina it feels like the perfect match, something close to fate. In Ella, Hunter finds the perfect love story, full of longing and sacrifice. It’s the stuff of epic films. In Hunter, Ella finds possibility. It’s an opportunity to live out a fantasy – the life she wishes she had because hers is too painful. And more real. Besides. what’s a little white lie between strangers?
But one lie leads to another, and soon Hunter and Ella find themselves caught in a web of deceit. As they try to untangle their lies and reclaim their own lives, they feel something stronger is keeping them together. And so they wonder: can two people come together for all the wrong reasons and still make it right?
