My thoughts: I have personal ties to this book because 3 years ago I was ring shopping with my ex boyfriend. Yes girl, now my ex. Most recently he invited me out to dinner to catch up and only minutes into the discussion, he dropped a bomb. I learned that my ex man was newly engaged to his new boyfriend. Yes, boyfriend and ever since then I’ve questioned and retraced my steps. Over a million times. This book is such a good read. Save yourself heartache and don’t leave any stone unturned.
