Once Upon a Time, There Was You (2011)

John and Irene parted ways years ago after their marriage fell apart. Irene is having fun dating a significantly younger man and John is dating Amy, a woman he has fallen in love with. The only connection John and Irene have left is their daughter Sadie. When 18-year-old Sadie fails to return from a weekend of rock climbing, John and Irene are forced together. The love for their daughter binds them together and they begin to re-examine the life and love they once had for each other. The reader will fall in love with John, a man who deserves true love, however, Irene seems so bitter that I was left wondering why John ever loved her. As a huge fan of will they/won't they novels, I was surprised that by the end of this one I didn't care what path the characters took. (AO)
