The path to happiness is littered with ex-boyfriends, confusing career choices, and lingering insecurities for an ambitious young woman in this touching, romantic debut.
Before leaving for London on an ill-fated business trip, Jules Sinclair had the kind of argument with her beau Marcus where many terrible things were said. Some were said only to hurt the other person, others were heat-of-the-moment slips of the tongue that could never be taken back. All were guaranteed relationship enders. Now that she has arrived back in L.A. and is headed toward the home she shares with Marcus in Beverly Hills, the only thing London has cleared up for Jules is that she does not want out of the relationship. But how does she get back in? Even if she knew the magic words to repair all of the harm, will Marcus even be there to hear them when she puts her key in the door?
It’s the perfect storm that only Jules could have created for herself. Maybe in figuring out how she got into this mess, she can save whatever is left of her future with Marcus.
Filled with tender moments and strong, relatable characters, Waiting for Jules is a charming tale about the necessity of mending the past while on the road to happily ever after.
