The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson

The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson

Description from the publisher:

"Jonathan and Rosie have been together so long they finish each other’s sentences—so when he (finally) proposes and asks her to move across the country with him, everyone is happily surprised.
 But when things suddenly unravel, Rosie sends Jonathan packing and moves back home with Soapie, the irascible, opinionated grandmother who raised her. Only now she has to figure out how to fire Soapie’s very unsuitable caregiver, a gardener named Tony who lets her drink martinis, smoke, and cheat at Scrabble.
It’s a temporary break, of course—until Rosie realizes she’s accidentally pregnant at 44, completely unequipped for motherhood, and worse, may be falling in love with the sentimental, troubled Tony, whose life is even more muddled than hers. 
It’s not until Rosie learns the truth about her mother’s tragic story that she wonders if sometimes you have to let go of your fears, trusting that the big-hearted, messy life that awaits you may just be the one you were meant to live."

This book was VERY slow to start. To be honest, I almost stopped reading it but I like to push through the slow parts and see how the book ends. For this book, it really did take a while to get going but once I got into it, it did get better. About half way through, I had a hard time putting it down. I did enjoy the characters and I loved how the relationship built up between Rosie and Tony.

This book was a good read on a rainy day but it is not something I would read again. But, as I always say, don't take my word for it, read this book for yourself and let me know what you thought about it!

***This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an open and honest review***
