An endearing novel of friendship, forgiveness, and second chances by New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart.
It was a lifetime ago that recently widowed Maggie Flynn was in Wyndham Beach. Now, on the occasion of her fortieth high school reunion, she returns to her hometown on the Massachusetts coast, picking up right where she left off with dear friends Lydia and Emma. But seeing Brett Crawford again stirs other emotions. Once, they were the town’s golden couple destined for one another. He shared Maggie’s dreams - and eventually, a shattering secret that drove them apart.
Buying her old family home and resettling in Wyndham Beach means a chance to start over for Maggie and her two daughters, but it also means facing her rekindled feelings for her first love and finally confronting - and embracing - the past in ways she never thought possible. Maggie won’t be alone. With her family and friends around her, she can weather this stormy turning point in her life and open her heart to the future. As for that dream shared and lost years ago? If Maggie can forgive herself, it still might come true.

*Most of the character are likeable without being sugary sweet. I could see similarities to friends of mine. I did indeed feel that many of the events shared their history were much like some of my own memories.
*No explicitly detailed physical encounters. THANK YOU!
*The author refrained from using the F-word, which is in keeping with the age of these ladies. I know that the young adults today use it casually and it is getting difficult to find books that do not have it sprinkled liberally (or spread thickly) throughout. Again, thank you.
*Almost every chapter had "mild" curse words, many chapters had multiple. I flagged more than 50 times in the 22 chapters. It just wasn't necessary or in keeping with how the author portrayed the ladies. If that is something that bothers you, you might want to think twice before acquiring this book.
*The thinly veiled "mystery" event was really so obvious that the author should have just gone ahead and told the story earlier. There was however a problem with the timeline unless their prom was in February. Around here, prom is a late spring event and always has been.
*The title doesn't really apply since the story actually spans a full year, more or less.
* Another reviewer mentioned this, but I found it troubling enough that it bears repeating-- When a character reveals that he lost multiple members of his family to the recent pandemic, I immediately questioned why the author chose to cite the pandemic as the means of death. Since the characters in this book had ALL attended multiple functions and get-togethers without a single mention of social distancing, masks, testing, or any other aspect of life pertinent to life during a pandemic, this came out of nowhere.
Overall, it is not a bad book. It also is not an outstanding book. I am one who is not looking forward to the next one because I will most likely skip it. This is mainly
due to language. My friends and I do not speak this crudely and, in my opinion, it just didn't serve these characters very well.

Why have I even read 23%? Because I was hoping it would turn a corner, reveal a glimpse that it would turn into something interesting, but sadly no.
Having just read 'The mixtape' and 'The receptionist', I have probably been spoilt by books that I didn't want to put down.
I really don't like doing negative reviews, but despite this one being a freebie from Kindle Unlimited, it just isn't worth spending part of your precious life reading it. Avoid this one.
