Review: How to Walk Away by Katherine Center

READ THIS BOOK. That is all.

OK just kidding. That’s not all. But really. There is not one bad thing I can say about this book. It’s honest, it’s painful, it’s funny, it’s refreshing. I sailed through it and I didn’t want it to end. It’s one of those uplifting stories that is disguised as a story of pain, and heartbreak. But did I mention it’s funny too!?

Margaret seems to have it all. The job, the boyfriend, the apartment, the fiancé…. a super bright future of loads of money, the crazy hot guy to wake up next to, and endless white picket fences. And then everything changes.

Most of her story takes place in some pretty gut-wrenching hospital situations. Her fiancé may not be as great as she thought, the bright future may not be as bright anymore, and her family has some pretty serious skeletons that are about to rock her world.

And then there’s Ian {{swoon!}} – who doesn’t want a brooding, rock hard, gorgeous man with a Scottish accent in their life? Yes, please! Ian is gruff and salty, and pushes Margaret to extremes that make her hate him but thankful for him all at the same time… who is this guy?! And what is his story?!

It’s almost a journey of Margaret becoming Maggie. The so-called picture-perfect life she had all buttoned-up, just may have been buttoned too tight, and a major life-changing event could show a side of her she never imagined possible.

I adored this book. It’s so inspiring and the end was not the typical end I imagined it would be. It was refreshing, and honest, and brutal at times, but a definite new favorite. I’m adding this to my top 5 of 2018. Great story, and highly recommend!
