Why I Am Recommending: This is one of my go-to recommendations because I find it to be fairly universally enjoyed. The topic is interesting, the characters are quirky, there is romance, there are tears, it is in essence, everything a good book should be. When I say tears, I mean grab a big box of tissues. Jojo Moyes is a great author and you can always feel confident that the writing will be great and she will have researched her topic thoroughly. This book will not let you down.
