Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
I know I already did a Want Books for Liane Moriarty’s other novel, Three Wishes but I wanted to feature The Last Anniversary as well because I’m really curious about it. If I had a copy of it right now, I’d read it right away. I finished reading What Alice Forgot last night and loved it so now I want to catch up on the author’s backlist. Unfortunately, The Last Anniversary is out of stock in local bookstores and not available in the Book Depository. Maybe I should hunt down a used copy somewhere?
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one she let get away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie’s house on Scribbly Gum Island – home of the famously unsolved Munro Baby mystery.
Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it’s about time she started making her own decisions.
As Sophie’s life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around – and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.
What about you, what book is in your wishlist?
