This book – Maybe One Day by Debbie Johnson – made me feel ALL the feels.
Over a decade after losing touch with Joe, the love of her life, Jess finds a box in her mother’s attic. It’s filled with lost letters and postcards from Joe. Jess realizes that her parents lied to her when they told her he had abandoned her all those years ago. With her cousin and friend in tow, she sets out to find Joe by following the postcards that map out the path he took after leaving town.

Maybe One Day by Debbie Johnson: My Thoughts
This is an emotional contemporary fiction/romance story that’s sprinkled with hints of mystery. It’s an eclectic mix of funny, sad, and hopeful. One minute it tugged at my heartstrings, and the next it had me laughing. That’s no easy feat!
It has characters you can’t help but love and root for. The banter between the main character’s companions, Michael and Belinda, was so entertaining.
There’s a ‘road trip’ style plot – which I can always get behind – with the added element of lost letters/postcards. I mean, can it get any more charming than that?! I loved following Jess as she country-hopped to all the places Joe had been, and tried to piece together his journey over the years.
Highly recommended! Just expect some tears alongside the happy feels. [Trigger warning: child loss]
