Published: Everafter Romance - July 10th, 2018

Heart break is hard, especially when you're Roscoe Winston--cursed with kind of memory that never blurs or fades. Each day the pain is fresh as the last. So he's spent the last ten years avoiding Simone, and she's avoided him...except now he's a key component to the federal case that Simone is trying to build, and she can't afford to stay away from him anymore. Reid's writing is funny and smart, often making me actually laugh out loud. Her characters are interesting, brilliant and quirky--the kind you want to go back and visit again and again. (Reid is also a local independent author!) She has become an instabuy author for me.

I'm cracking up right now just thinking of this book. It's hilarious. And big-hearted, with wonderful characters and yes, some tragedy. And did I mention it's funny? One of my favorite books of the last ten years. 

  • Yes, the author is related to the famed Udall political family of the west!
  • His New Yorker article, "Big Love," was the basis for the HBO series of the same name!
