HarperAudio. (Writtenin the Stars, Bk. 3). Feb. 2022. 11 hrs. ISBN 9780063000902. $26.99. LGBT ROMANCE
Margot Cooper doesn’t need a committed relationship. She’s perfectly happy with her friend group, thanks. Only now, all her friends are either engaged or getting married, and Margot is afraid she’ll be left behind. So when “the One Who Got Away,” Olivia Grant from Margot’s small hometown, pops up as the event planner for Margot’s best friend’s wedding, all rom-com hell breaks loose. Well-drawn characters with relatable worries, fears, and insecurities make the obligatory breakup seem slightly less manufactured than the genre sometimes sees. Lauren Sweet provides a lively and highly listenable narration that helps bring the characters further to life.
VERDICT A first purchase audio for libraries with an active contemporary romance readership, fans of Bellefleur’s (Hang the Moon) previous installments in the series, and libraries looking to expand the LGBTQIA+ representation in their collections.
