When Liv Goldenhorn's husband and wedding-planning business partner dies unexpectedly, Liv is shocked to learn that he has left half their company to his younger, blonder mistress. What starts as a personal and professional nightmare transforms into something even savvy, cynical Liv couldn't begin to imagine—not for herself or the people in her orbit who find love along the way.
Witty, engaging and full of magnificent love stories, It Had to Be You is another resounding success from Georgia Clark ... The couplings in It Had to Be You are wonderfully diverse and well-rounded ... It is highly ambitious, and there are few authors who could take five couples and two wedding planners and create anything but disaster. But even this is not saying enough, because Clark revels in disaster. The messy, gray-area 'how did I end up in this situation?' occurrences of life are her playground, and here she takes every diverse coupling, professional nightmare and swoon-worthy love story in her arsenal and creates something deeply joy-filled, tender, sexy and charming. The world is full of love stories—some short, some lifelong, some out-of-this-world—but whatever your poison, Clark has something unforgettable for you here.
Clark creates a quilt of diverse love stories, overlapping and meandering warmly throughout New York City ... each story Clark tells packs an emotional punch, but Savannah's and Liv's respective relationships, as well as their own evolution to friends and colleagues, are standouts.
... reads like a love letter to New York-set rom coms. Full of immersive details, rich characters, and great banter, Clark’s latest...perfectly balances sweetness and an edge of realism that will draw readers in.
