Most generally romance novels end when the couple is engaged or even when they marry, very few explore married life. That’s where this novel goes. What happens when the spark is fizzling? Chemistry is still there but life gets in the way. For Imogene and Theo, a few things are getting in the way of their happily ever after starting with the fact that the two are from completely different social classes. Imogene comes from an incredibly wealthy and prestigious family that vacations in Nantucket whereas, Theo was born and raised in Nantucket and is considered a townie. They worked for years to over come the societal hurdles which included Theo taking a job at a family friend’s company where he is completely miserable. He suffers through it for Imogene and his marriage.
For years, Imogene and Theo tried to have a baby. They began trying shortly after dating even before they were engaged. Through the fertility treatments and IVF appointments, Imogene and Theo were met with disappointment. Multiple negative pregnancy tests, miscarriage, and family pressures all mount for Imogene. She decides that her marriage is over. She can’t take the pressures from her family. She wants to take her rightful place in the family business that her father should have given her, but took away when she married Theo. She returns to her family, but they have other plans. She has to stay with Theo for one month and after jumping through all her father’s hoops she will take over the Human Resources division of the company after a few months.
A few issues happen for Imogene beginning with the fact that she still loves her husband, but she’s divorcing him to make him happy. She knows that their life makes him miserable. She’s pregnant. She doesn’t want to tell him even though her best friend thinks she should. Spending the month together reminds them of why they fell in love with each other. Theo doesn’t want to give Imogene a divorce. He wants her–only her. Not her family and all the societal requirements. Just the beautiful girl who let him sleep with her in a coat closet hours after meeting. His intelligent planner who threw caution to the wind when it came to him. Now, she’s not willing to do the same in order to save their marriage. He’s going to let her go.
