It's better not to love at all, especially when you're dying.
"This book wasn't just an emotional roller coaster ride, it was the whole darned carnival."
Naked zip lining in the Thailand jungle, being pulled onstage at Denzel Duke concert living her best life still hasn't changed the outcome for popular travel vlogger Shae. She's going to die, and possibly soon. Diagnosed with an unpronounceable terminal illness as a teen, Shae grabs at the extra months and years she's been given without giving any of herself in return, keeping quiet about the real reason she's afraid to give love a try.
Emmett knows all about loss. He was living his best life until the death of his wife sent him spinning out of control. It took three years to pull himself together, trading ball diamonds for the strawberry patch and sweet cornfields of the family farm, but he's ready to take another chance at love.
