If it ain’t broke, why’s she so intent on fixing it?

Tessa Booker hates romance.

For 25 years, Tessa Booker has insisted that romance is something Hollywood cooked up to sell books and movies. Yes, she knows the word existed before movies. She doesn’t care. That’s her story, and she’s sticking to it.

So, when Ross gets a gentle nudge from Mallory Barrows to look into what Tessa’s doing every day while he’s at work, he discovers a romance in the works – one that sounds a little too “ripped from the pages of his life”!

Who is this woman, and what has she done with his wife? 

Armed with advice from 101 Ways to Romance Your Wife and a copy of the manuscript he printed while she was napping, he’s determined to figure out what’s up with his wife…and if maybe a little romance wouldn’t be a good thing, after all.

In a twist of the “on the rocks trope”, this book introduces the next island in the Independence Islands series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily ever afters.

My Thoughts

Chautona Havig has such a gift for writing and the depth of her storylines are superb. This is a story about love, restoration and healing. Typically we read stories of young couples or singles being married. This story focuses on an older copy on the verge of being empty nesters. Coping with how to be not only with each other but who they are as people. It was a moving story and I love how Chautona brought the Five Languages of Love at play in this story. 

That being said praise must also go to the voice behind this book! If you have been on the blog before or followed my on Instagram you know I am not an audiobook person at all. But I must say I have enjoyed listening to Christa. She makes listening to the book fun and interesting. She really draws you in and you feel like you are in the scene of the story. 

If you enjoy audio books or if you have enjoyed this series then I recommend you grab this one!

My Rating: 4 Stars/Really Enjoyed it!

About the Author

Chautona Havig

Author of the bestselling Aggie and Past Forward series, Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

Christa DelSorbo

“The voice of a friend.”

Christa has a great sense of humor and extensive experience with accents, particularly those of the Southern United States and Great Britain. Her most recent credits include: local live musical theatre actress and choreographer, regional radio commercial voice actress, and speaker for national business events.
