Book 18 review: 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤/5🖤. How To Walk Away by Katherine Center
Length 320 pages
Margaret Jacobsen is just about to step into the bright future she’s worked for so hard and so long: a new dream job, a fiancé she adores, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in a brief, tumultuous moment. 
In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Maggie must confront the unthinkable. First there is her fiancé, Chip, who wallows in self-pity while simultaneously expecting to be forgiven. Then, there's her sister Kit, who shows up after pulling a three-year vanishing act. Finally, there's Ian, her physical therapist, the one the nurses said was too tough for her. Ian, who won't let her give in to her pity, and who sees her like no one has seen her before. Sometimes the last thing you want is the one thing you need. Sometimes we all need someone to catch us when we fall. And sometimes love can find us in the least likely place we would ever expect. 
How to Walk Away is Katherine Center at her very best―a masterpiece of a novel that is both hopeful and hilarious; truthful and wise; tender and brave.

My thoughts with spoile: OW did this book surprise me! From the minute I started reading I could not put it down. I love the family love story in it just as much as the romantic one and Maggie's determination and strength is so admirable. I fell in love with Ian just as quick as Maggie. The only part I could have done without was when Maggie went to Chip's wedding...I felt like they could have left that part out. But maybe I am just really not a fan of Chip! 🙃🤔 This is a must read, feel good book.
