Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover comes a novel that explores life after tragedy and the enduring spirit of love.

When Leeds meets Layla, he's convinced he'll spend the rest of his life with her--until an unexpected attack leaves Layla fighting for her life. After weeks in the hospital, Layla recovers physically, but the emotional and mental scarring has altered the woman Leeds fell in love with. In order to put their relationship back on track, Leeds whisks Layla away to the bed-and-breakfast where they first met. Once they arrive, Layla's behavior takes a bizarre turn. And that's just one of many inexplicable occurrences.

Feeling distant from Layla, Leeds soon finds solace in Willow--another guest of the B&B with whom he forms a connection through their shared concerns. As his curiosity for Willow grows, his decision to help her find answers puts him in direct conflict with Layla's well-being. Leeds soon realizes he has to make a choice because he can't help both of them. But if he makes the wrong choice, it could be detrimental for all of them.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Hoover (Regretting You) explores the power of love in the face of tragedy in this engaging contemporary romance with a supernatural twist. Aspiring singer-songwriter Leeds Gabriel happens to meet Layla on the night of Layla's sister's wedding, and immediately knows that they're meant for each other. The pair embark on a whirlwind romance, but Leeds is left reeling when his obsessive ex-girlfriend, Sable, attacks and almost kills Layla. Layla recovers physically weeks later, but the incident leaves her emotionally and mentally scarred. Desperate to salvage their relationship, Leeds surprises Layla with a trip back to the bed and breakfast where they first met. But Layla's behavior takes an erratic shift once they arrive, followed by a string of strange events, including displaced objects and a piano that plays itself. Feeling disconnected from Layla, Leeds finds relief from his loneliness in the mysterious Willow, another guest at the B&B--but Willow is more than she appears and her connection with Leeds puts Layla at risk. Though the ending is slightly rushed, the unusual twist on a typical love triangle plot adds intrigue. Surprising and emotionally tense, this paranormal romance is sure to entertain. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel, Goderich, and Bourret. (Dec.)"
