Books by Beth Harbison. Jul 22, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: Who keeps paying Beth Harbison to churn out this stuff? Now that would have been interesting. Until one terrible night when Erin made a mistake Nate could not forgive and left her to mourn the relationship she could never forget or get over.
Thin, Rich, Pretty By: The one she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. The supporting characters were uninteresting and seemed to be there only to set Erin up for more drawn-out self-serving introspection. Overall, this is an old tale.
Martin’s Press first published July 6th What happens with their relationship to cause the present events? Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Maybe her indecisiveness is why the book theree of moved slow to me.
I’ll give it a chance to see if it gets any better, but it’s not promising so far. People need to grow up. In this story, the author delves into deeper stuff than she’s ever done before, and shows her readers what she can really do with words.
Everyone in this book is an asshole. The heroine just kept repeating the same story over and over of lamenting her lost love as a teen. Today, Erin is contentedly involved with a phenomenal guy, maneuvering a successful and exciting career, and raising a great daughter all on her own. Erin Edwards is a typical girl with crushes.
For some reason, Harbison decided to change the narrative point of view when Erin Edwards, the main character, is in the present and the past. So, while I feel the premise of the book was a thoughtful one, I do not feel like it was handled well at all. I’ve read all of Beth Harbison’s books and liked them all. Back in July, I accepted my first audiobook for review. Small Town Rumors By: Chick lit isn’t my usual genre, but this book was recommended to me, and I did enjoy it.
When Erin’s current hot-but-dull boyfriend proposes marriage, Erin instantly thinks of her high school sweetheart Nate Lawson, with whom she broke up with after having a simple miscommunication. The words are dead on the page, there is no engagement of the reader, nothing that stimulates or drives. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. I couldn’t stand the main character, Erin. The one with whom she shared everything–dreams of the future, of children, plans for forever.
After trial, you’ll get 3 titles each month: Jun 03, Angela Risner rated it did not like it.
Set in and “present” smart and funny, don’t need to say more: The thing is that she is, in essence, the same person that she was as a teenager with the same feelings but different because of her experiences.
My absolute favorite of her books. They spent not only every day, but many nights together. Despite efforts to reconnect during high school, they end up not meeting again until over 20 years later. And although the ending was satisfying, it was completely unrealistic. And a shared lust for fabulous footwear.

What girls don’t realize is that when you give your heart and body to someone, they will always have a piece of you. Every time I picked up the book I sang the song by the same name and I could not and still can not get it out of my haarbison.
Erin is my age, exactly. Refresh and try again. She can’t stop thinking of him. Additionally, Erin did a lot of thinking in this book, and having it read aloud really gave it the extra power it needed to really sink in with me as a listener.
There is also a lot of discussion about fate in this book. I don’t think that I have ever been as personally affected mentally and emotionally by a book as this one has affected me and I am not even sure if I can pinpoint the exact reason as to why. The one with whom somethlng shared everything–dreams of the future, of children, plans for forever. Write your own comment on this book! It’s the story about Erin and her high school sweetheart Nate.
Why do some give such power away? It questions whether one can ever get over their first love and intertwines the tale of Erin the novel’s protagonist during her teen years with that of her during her adult life.
It was also overly repetitive, chapter after chapter after freaking chapter, in its effort to jam down your throat the idea that this somehhing was “true love.
