Hannah’s life is not the one she would have chosen. She has always wanted to be an artist like her grandmother, but her life did not work out that way. In fact, her present life is not working out at all.
Aaron is a successful photographer. He is attracted to Hannah from their first meeting, but unable to do anything about it. He is willing to take things slowly once they finally get together.
Hannah is leading a dead-end life in Calgary. Her job in an upscale spa is getting progressively less appealing, her love life is toxic, and she is still mourning the death of her grandmother. Her best friend is taking charge of her life by opening up her own salon, which makes Hannah's life seem even more depressing. But sometimes you have to hit bottom before you can make changes, and Hannah’s time has come.
This is not a quick read; the author writes a very detailed and emotional account of Hannah’s life. Her life is not grand or exciting, at least at first, but it is very involving, and I could not wait to see what would happen to her next. I got very involved with Hannah and Jas’ lives, friends, work, and families. Her relationships with Jas and her family are the most complicated. Her mother is very difficult. Her matriculation into art school really turned her life and attitude around. Her romance with Aaron was all the better for its slow pace, showing that she learned a lesson from her previous ones. Overall, this is a well-written and very entertaining story that I definitely recommend.
