April Read- The One & Only

I borrowed this book from a friend and it is so good I am already prepping to finish this week. With that in mind, I am getting ready to start my next read.

The One & Only has caught my attention many times. I have seen it at multiple stores, my office library (where I may have snagged it), and because I searched it a few too many times it now shows up everywhere online. Well done to who ever does their digital marketing. 

Besides the awesome fact that this book is based in Texas, it sounds like one that would tug at my heart strings. Why do I like putting myself through those types of books??



Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas—a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.

But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea’s comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she’s chosen is really enough for her. As she finally gives up her safety net to set out on an unexpected path, Shea discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she has always trusted most—and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets.

Thoughtful, funny, and brilliantly observed, The One & Only is a luminous novel about finding your passion, following your heart, and, most of all, believing in something bigger than yourself . . . the one and only thing that truly makes life worth living.

Let's read it together, shall we?!
