From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train comes a novel of self-discovery and second chances.

Angela is single in New York City, stuck in a job she hates. She inherited a flair for Italian cooking from her grandmother, but she never seems to have the time for it.

On a hope and a chance, Angela decides to pack it all up and move to Maine, finding motivation in the dating profile of a handsome sailor who loves dogs and Italian food. But her new home isn't quite matching up with the fantasy. Far from everything familiar, Angela begins to rebuild her life from the ground up and, in the process, realizes there's really no such thing as the way life should be.

Predictable, but the author's lightness of touch, the recipes!!, and her sense of humor rescue the story, making it a charming one.

One of those storries that leaves you open to a sequel or to finish up with your own ending as it ends rather abruptly without resolution for the characters.

This is a light story about a young woman searching for her place in the world. Fairly predictable, but fine and interestingly enough for me to finish the book.
