Pay attention. Life is not a dress rehearsal. From their first meeting, to their stunning engagement and lavish wedding, to their happily-ever-after, Noah and Emily Carter were meant to be together. Theirs is a special kind of love and they want the world to know. More than a million adoring fans have followed their lives on Instagram since the day Noah publicly proposed to Emily. But behind the carefully staged photos and encouraging posts, their life is anything but a fairytale, and Noah's obsession with social media has ruined everything.

This story played out in a surprisingly wierd way. So I don't need to give spoiler alert, I won't go into more detail except to say I have never read a book with the premise and eventualities this storyline had from the beginning to the end. This is the first book I have read of this author but have since pulled several Karen Kingsbury's to read. I found it to be bittersweet and endearing at the same time. The perfect couple (on social media) went thru a lot! Social media takes up far too much of peoples lives today...as in this book, so much so that they stop living a REAL life and spend all their time "staging" their life for others to see. Soooooooooooo sad. Yet true.
I would definitely recommend this book. Thank the library for having it in the LP section.

No rating. I didn't get very far into this book and I was bored with it. It read like a reality show and I can't stand reality shows. To each their own.

I have read many of Karen Kingsbury's books and this one is one of my favorites.I absolutely loved this book! Beautiful Story! Social media is so popular today and if you get so absorbed in it, it can destroy you. I am so happy that Karen wrote a book about its impact on a person's life, in this case, a family. The story is a tear-jerker and grips you from the beginning. A must read.
