“I don’t know what I’m doing with my life. But it feels like it’s mine.”
Serena has her life together. She lives in Seattle and is a successful accountant and has a serious boyfriend. In New Orleans at her cousin’s bachelorette party she has a moment with a stranger that has her rethinking everything. He is gorgeous, also lives in Seattle and they have great banter. But in the madness of the moment they don’t exchange details. When she returns home she is suddenly feeling adrift, reassessing whether her “content” life is good enough. Is she really fulfilled? Will she ever see her mysterious crush again?
This is the type of rom-com / women’s fiction I enjoy. Serena doesn’t languish when she decides her life is not going the way she wants. She acts. And sure, it gets messy but she is in control of it. Everyone is entitled to time to sort themselves out. She doesn’t do it with the most poise, but she does it with passion. She is both introspective and deals with her issues. She has a great group of friends who support her and while it is tipped off by a man and a search for love, that is not all that drives her.
