Publisher's Summary

“Sometimes, you find yourself inadvertently in the dark. But I’d discovered that if you stopped fighting against it and just stood still, sometimes something marvelous comes along.”

Artist Lexie McCain spends her days literally weaving the story of her life into a gorgeous tapestry. But on Monday nights, she walks to the Corner Bar, drinks a Killian’s, and answers the same question every week from Sam the bartender: “One thing?” She starts with her name, then her cottage, slowly moving on to the devastating tragedies that tore her life apart.

Sam Corner’s smile doesn’t seem to hide any pain. One night, Lexie turns the tables on him, asking Sam, “One thing?” To her surprise, Sam reveals his own tragic history. Together, Lexie and Sam learn that, with good beer and a trusted friend, sharing just “one thing” might lead to the one thing they both thought was lost forever: Love.

From award-winning author Holly Jacobs comes the story of heartache, hope, and the power of sharing just one thing.

    Excellent feel good story with a little suspense included to keep the reader entranced and wanting to discover the main character's secrets

    Don't sweat the small stuff...


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    Lexi, not unexpected as she is the primary character... I got so wrapped up in the story and I wanted her to heal


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At the point where the Lexi reads Grace's letter, I lost it and was in tears...

    "Loved it"

    This was a very different story than what I have read before. It was unique and I really enjoyed it. The narrator did a fantastic job.

    Story
    "Great story but the narrator is just not good."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Only the narrator. The writer wrote a good, clean romance that seems like real life.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has no sense of pacing for the subject matter or proper change of expression. Most of the reading was too fast. Too many moments seemed like a jump to emotional expression but badly done...laughable actually. It gets a little better (or I just go used to it) by about half the way through. I'm pretty sure I've heard this narrator on another story. It was bad then. It's bad now. I'll definitely stick to reading only in the future when I see this narrator. The convenience of audio would be missed, but the story will be all the better.
    All in all, this narration actually took away from the impact of the story.

    Story
    "Touching story, kept me riveted to the end"

    When I read the short description of this book, I was intrigued, but a little worried that it would be a sad, depressing story. It was definitely touching, but not depressing at all. On the contrary, it was actually uplifting. The story begins from Lexie's viewpoint and switches off and on to Sam's viewpoint throughout the story. Lexie is living alone in a cabin in a rural part of NW Pennsylvania just getting through the days. On Mondays she goes to a nearby bar where Sam the bartender asks her to tell him "just one thing" about herself. Then she starts asking him the same thing until they become comfortable with one another as their stories unfold. The author switches back and forth from flashbacks to the present time. Both Sam and Lexie have sad, life-altering events in their pasts, and they end up helping each other out with their respective problems. As the stories unfold, you'll end up caught up in their lives and rooting for them as well.

    The one problem I had was with the narrator. Her voice seemed too old for the story (sorry!) and I think someone with a middle aged voice would have really made this story a solid five star. I had both the Amazon Kindle version of this book and the audible version and I was more comfortable reading the ebook because of the narrator's voice. Either way, just don't miss out on this book!

    Story
    "best story that I've listened to in a while"

    This is one of the best short listens that I have heard in a while. The story is true of life's ups and downs and is spoken from a very honest please. I will not go into detail, but my favorite part is the ending because it doesn't create a fictional view of how life actually works, but one with which to be satisfied.

    I highly recommend this read/listen.
