Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City.

Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, and—with a little encouragement from her friends—a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amy’s heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind.

But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream she’s ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart.

A mom who needs a break, a dad who isn’t in the picture but wants to come back in, and a little adventure. That sums this book up well.

Kelly Harris has a gift for writing because this book kept me in my seat and up past my bed time wanting to know what would happen. The writing is fast-paced and fun. The characters are engaging and it’s a win for me.

Amy is up to her ears in responsibility. A single working mom of two…yeah, she’s busy. I liked that Amy has quirky friends as her safety net. Every girl needs them. I liked how she grew through the book. I rooted for Amy. I’ve often wondered what would happen if I took a week off from being a mom (responsibly of course) and I lived it vicariously through Amy.

Another thing that resonated with me with this book was Amy taking care of Amy. We all get overwhelmed and need that moment to explode. I liked how she handled things.

As chick lit, this book satisfied. I got the escapism I wanted and a few laughs along the way.

If you’re looking for a book that’s intriguing, but also makes you think while having a few laughs, then this is the book for you.
