ABOUT THE BOOK
This is the story of Quinn—born Prudence Quinn O’Malley—a confused young Manhattan attorney who loses her father on that tragic September morning that changed everything. Now, at an existential crossroads in her life, Quinn must confront impossible questions about commitment and career, love and loss. Her idealistic beau desperately wants a wedding, and whisks her away to Paris just to propose. But then Quinn has a dream featuring judges and handcuffs and Nietzsche and Britney . . . and far too many grooms. Suddenly, her future isn’t so clear. Quinn’s world has become a minefield of men—some living, some gone, and traversing it safely is going to take a lot more than numerous glasses of pinot grigio.
Life After Yes is a blisteringly honest, thoroughly modern tale of life and love in chaos, marking the arrival of a truly exciting new voice in contemporary fiction.
Thanks to Trish at TLC Book Tours for allowing me to be a part of the tour for this book.
I absolutely love the cover of Life After Yes. The white dress with the red ribbon is really pretty.
Anyways. I was super excited to read this book because it takes place in NYC and what better book to read on the way to NYC last week. The only thing that I was unsure of was the 9/11. I am an emotional person and that whole day still is heart breaking to me. I still get very emotional when I hear stories or see video of that very day. I personally wasn’t effected by it but it was the day that changed the world and the way we see it. I have to say that Aiden incorporated it into the story very well. It was there but not in your face there. Quinn the main character was the one who always had it in the back of her mind because she lost her father that day. This one day affects how she reacts and interacts with people.
Life After Yes is the story of Quinn. She is a young attorney and lives in NYC. Quinn’s life is a perfect dream (to us) because she is dating Sage, who is like a Prince Charming. Who wouldn’t love to be whisked away to Paris on a unplanned trip? In Paris he proposes and Quinn accepts. Back in NYC Quinn begins to question her feelings for Sage and wonders if marrying him is the right thing to do.
This is Aiden’s debut novel and I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading her future books.
