â€śThe book-equivalent of a perfect first date... Highly highly recommend.â€ť â€”Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author
â€śA heady kaleidoscope of romance, heartbreak, and healing thatâ€™s both rich in insight and enchantingly funny.â€ť â€”Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author
The author of the â€śemotional, hilarious, and thought-provokingâ€ť (People) novel The Bucket List returns with a witty and heartfelt romantic comedy featuring a wedding planner, her unexpected business partner, and their coworkers in a series of linked love storiesâ€”perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Casey McQuiston.
For the past twenty years, Liv and Eliot Goldenhorn have run In Love in New York, Brooklynâ€™s beloved wedding-planning business. When Eliot dies unexpectedly, he even more unexpectedly leaves half of the business to his younger, blonder girlfriend, Savannah. Liv and Savannah are not a match made in heaven, to say the least. But what starts as a personal and professional nightmare transforms into something even savvy, cynical Liv Goldenhorn couldnâ€™t begin to imagine.
It Had to Be You cleverly unites Liv, Savannah, and couples as diverse and unique as New York City itself, in a joyous Love-Actually-style braided narrative. The result is a smart, modern love story that truly speaks to our times. Second chances, secret romance, and steamy soul mates are front and center in this sexy, tender, and utterly charming rom-com that is â€śso much funâ€ť (Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author).
