This Won't End Well
publication: February 26th 2020 by Lake Union Publishing
No new people: that’s Annie Mercer’s vow. It’s bad enough that her boss sabotaged her chemistry career and her best friend tried to cure her with crystals. But after her fiancé, Jon, asks for space while he’s gallivanting around Paris, Annie decides she needs space too—from everyone.
Yet when Harper moves in next door, Annie can’t help but train a watchful eye on the glamorous but fragile young woman. And if keeping Harper safe requires teaming up with Mo, a maddeningly optimistic amateur detective, who is she to mind her own business?
Soon Annie has let not one but two new people into her life. Then Jon reappears—and he wants her to join him in France. She’s pretty sure letting anyone get close won’t end well. So she must decide: Is another shot at happiness worth the risk?
Annie Mercer is a little bit of a geek with her love of science and as her life falls apart around her, she finds herself looking for a job, wondering if the wedding is going to happen, and helping her mom stay safe. Then she meets Harper, after swearing off new people, and things start to change.
Annie must make decisions. Does she follow her heart or her head? Should she give her fiancé, Jon, a second chance? What about the new person in her life that makes her laugh, smile, and have fun? Annie is so real as she works through her life, she makes decisions, and has second doubts about those decisions. I loved seeing her take chances, step back and reconsider, and most of all find out what she really needs.
Camille Pagan writes a book that lets the readers connect with the characters, follow them on a real-life journey, and cheer them on at every choice they make. I am a fan of her writing and look forward to more from Camille.
