Date with a Book


On a rainy October night in Kentucky, recently divorced therapist Tallie Clark is on her way home from work when she spots a man precariously standing on the side of a bridge. Without a second thought, Tallie pulls over and jumps out of the car into the pouring rain. She convinces the man to join her for a cup of coffee, and he eventually agrees to come back to her house, where he finally shares his name: Emmett.

Over the course of the emotionally charged weekend that follows, Tallie makes it her mission to provide a safe space for Emmett, though she hesitates to confess that this is also her day job. But what she doesn't realize is that he's not the only one who needs healing -- and she's not the only one with secrets.

Alternating between Tallie and Emmett's perspectives as they inch closer to the truth of what brought Emmett to the bridge's edge -- as well as the hard truths Tallie has been grappling with in her own life -- This Close to Okay is a vibrant, powerful story of two strangers brought together by wild chance at the moment they needed each other most.


  1. This book looks very good, I loved the tip.

  2. Gracias por la recomendación. Te mando un beso

  3. This book sounds really promising, right down to the title. A tale of a therapist needing to heal herself is always interesting, and the mystery of the man and the bridge sounds like it builds suspense. Finally, I think it's cool -- albeit sometimes risky! -- when an author shows us both main characters' point of view.


Hi, I love hearing from people.
