A Love Story With a Twist

One True Loves

What would you do if your past came back after you had already moved on?

Emma is head over heels in love, wandering the world as a travel writer and basically living her dream life when the tragedy strikes - a helicopter carrying her husband goes missing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Jesse is presumed dead and Emma's life is changed forever. Fast forward three years. Emma has moved home and put her life together. She has a steady career running her parents' bookshop, she’s rebuilt her relationship with her sister, and she is newly engaged to an old flame.

Then the unthinkable happens. Jesse is found. He's been alive the whole time - and trying to get home to Emma. With one phone call, Emma's life is thrown into turmoil. How can she choose between her husband and her fiancé? How many true loves are we supposed to get?

This book was an enjoyable read. The characters are likeable and relatable, and the story is at turns happy and sad, humorous and serious. Taylor Jenkins Reid always spins a great love story (I loved her previous book Maybe in Another Life!) and I devoured this book in a couple of days. The story is an interesting take on a love triangle - Emma is not in love with two men at the same time, but with two men from different times in her life. But really One True Loves is less about which man Emma loves most and more about who she has become and what future she sees for her grown up self. This book will pull at your heartstrings, but leave you cheering at the end!
