Max Martinelli spent her junior year of college in Paris, and fell in love. Julien was a wickedly handsome young man who was crazy in love with her, or so she thought. He was a free-spirited artist and she an aspiring architect—impressionable, young, and standing on the brink of womanhood.

That was over three years ago but the memory of him still haunts her. Max’s life is stuck on hold because she can’t stop wondering what would have happened if she had gone back. Was Julien simply part of the magic of Paris? Or was he meant to be her destiny?

After a New Year’s Eve party that ends in disaster and bad dreams, Max decides to find out once and for all. She is going to return to Paris and search for Julien. But will her search bring forever after happiness or a truth so ugly it will change her life forever?


Max’s memory of Julien has haunted her for the past three years.  She’s unable to move forward while questions about Julien circle her mind.  Max decides to go back to Paris to see if she can find Julien.  What she finds will both break and heal her heart.  What happens when reality and memory clash in the present?  Will Max survive and move on or will she drown in her memories?

I really enjoyed this book.  This is a series that has really sucked me in.  Max is a fantastic character.  She is incredibly relatable.  The memories that plague her are ones that most people have had.  The what if or why when looking back on memories can haunt any person.  This story has so many good points that to tell them all would spoil the story.  That being said this story had me believing in love and the benefit of closure.  Bette Lee Crosby truly has become a master at telling love stories that will have the characters and their stories burrowing deep in your heart.  I can’t wait for her next book.
