Next Year, For Sure
Zoey Leigh Peterson
Publisher: Doubleday Canada
After nine years together, Kathryn and Chris have the sort of relationship most would envy. When Chris tells Kathryn about his attraction to Emily, Kathryn encourages him to ask her out on a date—certain that her bond with Chris is strong enough to weather whatever may come. When Chris’ romance with Emily evolves beyond what anyone anticipated, both Chris and Kathryn are invited into Emily’s communal home, where Kathryn will discover new possibilities of her own. In the confusions, passions, and upheavals of their new lives, both Kathryn and Chris will be forced to reconsider their past and what they thought they knew about love.
