Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, floating from interest to interest, job to job, and guy to guy, searching for a spark but never quite finding it. All she knows is that she won’t discover it working as a waitress at a pies-and-fries joint in Los Angeles or living with her fun but aimless best friend in a tiny apartment in the Arts District.

Then Charlotte collides with Adam, a gorgeous and soulful painter who seems just as lost as she feels. Their instant connection turns into a midnight drink… and a whirlwind night of champagne, Chinese food, and the kind of conversation that only happens in romantic comedies. But the next morning, Adam gives Charlotte the cold shoulder, leaving her confused and hurt—and wondering if the few odd moments between them the night before were red flags in disguise.

Months later, Charlotte hasn’t been able to shake Adam, so she decides to find out what happened the morning after their magical night together. This fateful decision rewrites their wild love story, but what Charlotte doesn’t know yet is that the ending has already been written.

Review

I read this book over two months ago, and I still can’t completely put into words how amazing it was. I’ve read a few of Carlino’s books, and they always pull me in. Wish You Were Here was no different.

I didn’t read the blurb before diving in, and I walked away from this book changed. I loved Charlotte’s friendship with Helen. I liked seeing her relationship grow with her family.

And Adam…he’s a guy you can’t forget. His spark lights up the room, and you want to get to know him.

I’m not going to say too much more because this is one of those it’s better to go in blind. But I cried, I laughed, and I loved right along with these characters.
