Violet and Finn were THE couple. The one everyone wants to be. The "perfect" couple, the couple meant to be or so everyone says and then Finn disappears with their son Bear.

Violet is blindsided and left alone on their family vacation. She has no answers for why Finn left she thought everything was perfect but Finn has secrets --- secrets that become his undoing.

Violet is grieving and searching for her son and her friend Caitlin knows where he is and can't tell her. The story unravels like a fine ribbon.

Readers get to  experience the before, during and after of Finn and Violets relationship. Strawser makes you ache for both characters and makes Finn a loveable character despite what he has done. The backstory of Caitlin is bittersweet and the story will haunt you long after you've closed the book.

This is a deliciously good book.
