Most days, divorced mom Ava Olson is just trying to keep it all together. With three school-age children and only a part-time job at a local newspaper, she barely has time to juggle the small stuff, much less stand back and consider the big picture. Besides, dreaming about what-ifs is a dangerous habit, especially when her real concern should be the competition from a much younger new editora.That is, until she meets Ford, a cafU owner who wins her over with his warm smile and delicious po' boy sandwiches-and makes her wonder if there could still be more to life than work and kids. Then a new opportunity opens up, and suddenly Ava is making big changes. Like moving eighty miles away to New Orleans, working full-time-and discovering just how sweet a future in the sultry Louisiana city might be-even if she has to explore it on her own. When Ava begins investigating a story that promises huge headlines, she's ready for the front pagea.But can she rewrite the story of her own life, complete with a love interest and a very happy ending? Insightful, humorous, and down-to-earth, Emily Beck Cogburn's new novel celebrates the possibilities of change, the courage it takes to make our most heartfelt dreams come true-and the joy of finding your place in the world.
