DEBUT Rachel has a textbook conventional life: as a married suburban mom and successful lawyer in her 40s, she usually has zero surprises. But when risqué photos and letters she shared with her high school boyfriend Jack show up in the tabloids, her whole life gets upended. Jack, now a celebrity, is the one who got away. They had a serious relationship that ended abruptly years ago, and they’ve had little contact since. Now, with the unrelenting media attention and the mystery of how these personal items got leaked, Rachel reconnects with Jack. In each other’s company, the years apart recede, and they realize their flame is still very much alive. But Rachel isn’t a teenager anymore, and she has to think about her husband, children, and career. When a devastating secret is revealed, she is forced to take stock of her life and figure out what will truly make her happy.
VERDICT With several ’90s flashbacks and plenty of character growth, Saunders’s debut will appeal to nostalgic readers and those who enjoy mature romances and novels featuring celebrities.
