Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Three distinctive women unknowingly fall in love with the same man in this captivating romance from bestseller O'Leary (The Road Trip). Life coach Siobhan Kelly meets charismatic Joseph Carter in London and falls hard after a passionate night together. Miranda Rosso, a free-spirited professional tree surgeon, also feels committed to Joseph despite suspecting that he's keeping secrets. And shy, bookish Jane Miller is determined to keep her flirtatious relationship with Joseph platonic, though deep down, she wishes they were something more. When Joseph doesn't show up to his Valentine's dates with any of the three women, his erratic behavior casts doubt on his relationships, and his partners wonder if there's more to Joseph than he's letting on. O'Leary pulls off an impressive balancing act, unraveling each woman's backstory while meticulously drawing connections between them and celebrating them for their differences. The attention to detail adds depth to each character—even Joseph will win readers over—and the twisty plot keeps readers both guessing what will happen next and rooting for happy endings across the board. This is a knockout. Agent: Tanera Simons, Darley Anderson Literary. (Apr.) Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly.
