Publisher's Summary

The final book in the Something in the Way series, and a USA Today best seller.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

A home he built us on the unshakable foundation we fought for.

A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.

A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore....

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects, and one I don't know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I'm afraid I'll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

But I'll beg the heavens for just one thing more.

Loved the series.

Beautifully written by Jessica Hawkins. Character depth and plot was fantastic. I have only written a few reviews. But for this series I had to. Narrators are beyond words and together they make the story come alive. I felt as if I was watching a movie while I was driving to work.

Something missing

I loved the series, I just wish the final book had Manning’s voice and point of view as well. I felt like that was really missing, and took away from some of the emotion .

Great love story

I loved this entire series. The only thing I felt was missing in the last book of the series was Manning’s point of view. I loved how the other books provided both Lake and Manning’s point of view. Would have loved to heard his also.

wonderful

In all of the many books I've read over the years this is only the 3rd series that I've been sad it has ended. Even the regular mundane everyday stuff in life held my interest and I could read/listen to it indefinitely. Great job and great deliverance!

💖💖LOVE💖💖

This series was unexpected for me. I didn’t read the summary since it came highly recommended. Enthralled from the first word. Must brag on the narrators...they are sooo good!
This is a series that has many ups and downs but worth it in the end!
I love Lake!! I love Manning!! I love this story!

Disappointed

First I have to say I love Andi Arnt she’s an amazing narrator!! That being said I was disappointed I didn’t get to hear Manning’s point of view at all in this story. It was just ok for me.

Loved the series!

You have to read the entire see! This was my first Jessica Hawkins story & I enjoyed reading it. I liked that I couldn’t figure out what was next.
I will listen to anything Andi Arndt reads! She is fantastic. My son is going to college next year and he wants to do voice acting so we have talked about how amazing she is!

A brilliant ending to a brilliant series!

Lake + Manning is the last book in the Something In The Way series by Jessica Hawkins and it's a brilliant ending to what has been a brilliant series. Andi Arndt was an amazing narrator. I absolutely recommend it!
