Eric finally proposed to Lauren, but it’s too little, too late. Unfortunately, she might have ruined things with Matthew too, losing her best friend, Blake, in the process. Lauren’s stuck in Fort Wayne working her job, but she’s completely alone. Gracie has become her source of sanity, and that’s saying something.
Book two is a little more fantastic than book one, because Lauren’s got herself in a real mess and is a little too silly to see her way out of it. But then, that’s also pretty realistic because sometimes we can’t see what’s right in front of our nose. Lauren’s got to work through some of her issues in order to get back the friendship of Matthew and Blake.
Even if she can, there’s a lot more happening at work and in her personal life that she’s struggling to deal with. Lauren’s ended up with a lot on her plate and it was fun to navigate through those sections with her. She’s got to learn some hard lessons, and we (as the reader) are left shouting to deaf ears. But she eventually learns what she needs to, or so I think.
