Publisher's Summary

Their love was written in the stars, but one of them wasn't yet ready for fate.

Ten years ago, Jess Mills had her life changed when she crossed paths with Shannon Parker, the most beautiful girl at their small liberal arts college. But what Jess assumed to be nothing more than a crush on a straight girl turned into the night of her dreams senior year.

Then? Nothing. Shannon was gone before graduation.

One of them has moved on. The other is just getting started.

Shannon bumps into Jess shortly after moving to Portland, a place her ex-boyfriend decided to call home. Both single, and both reeling from post-college life, Shannon realizes that it's no mere coincidence she's once again encountered the girl who defined her co-ed years.

It's fate.

Jess's love for astrology and divination is about to come in handy now that Shannon is determined to face her feelings and understand the whim of the universe.

She isn't running anymore.

Fate....

I was all over with this book. Fate and the stars....how can you go wrong. It was interesting how the characters switched their perspectives in the 10 years that had passed between them. The impact one person can make on your life.

Follow what’s written in the stars

I enjoyed the astrological parts of this book and how it played part in Jess and Shannon’s relationship. There were a lot of emotions that they needed to come to terms with. This is quite different than some of Hildred’s other stories. This story made me feel sad and happy for both characters.

Life sure does get in the way!

Have you ever wondered if fate was your friend or your enemy? If so, you will love this story!

The Author, Hildred Billings does a wonderful job of writing story about how life has it’s rollercoaster moment. One minute your on the way up and life trips you up and swings downward. They past and present switch backs in this novel are very interesting and gives you glimpses on where they go wrong and where they go right!

I really liked the narrator, Lily Foster, in this audiobook. She brought the story to life and had well defined distinctions in the characters voices!

Overall I will say that I would recommend this book. If you are a hopeless romantic, this is for you!

Aquarius ♒ and a ♎ Libra

walk a long road to finding love and friendship. An unrequited love and a one finding her way. Not your normal Billings story but more sincere and more soul into the book. Truly sensational 👏 story and a must listen.
