FTC Disclosure: I paid for this book with my own money

Summary (from the inside flap of the book): When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it's mutual: It's as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call.

Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened--there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she's right. There is a reason for Eddie's disappearance, and it's the one thing they didn't share with each other: the truth.
 
Review: I have had this book on my TBR shelf for quite a while and got it from Book of the Month. For some reason, the description sounded good when I got it, then didn't appeal to me whenever I considered reading it. But, now with the pandemic I am trying to read through some of the books that have been in my house for ages and figured it was time to give this one a go. I am glad I finally did!

This story is a romance, but also a mystery as Sarah tries to figure out what has happened to Eddie. There is a bit of humor and definitely a bunch of intense emotions as we learn about their relationships with their parents, siblings, and friends. It's a good cast of characters.

Sarah and Eddie fall hard for one another, but we don't really get the story right away since it is eked out over most of the book as is both of their back stories (at least the parts that are relevant). I liked the format of dual stories, some letters, some texting, and the build up of how it all comes together.

Challenges for which this counts: 
This book counts for the Popsugar challenge because the author has flora or fauna in their name (Rosie).
