*Received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Clay and Louise are living in New Jersey when Clay learns that a relative has left him a home in Florida. Eager to retire and enjoy the rest of his life, Clay is eager to sell their home and begin a new life. Louise is very against the move and tries to sabotage the sale of their home so she can stay in New Jersey. Eventually they make it to Florida and come to learn “What Matters Most”

This is the type of book that is easy to read. It had some very funny moments where I laughed out loud, some cute moments and some sad moments. I especially liked the parts where the author let us see what both Clay and Louise were thinking. Louise, being a main character, was not a very likeable character to me. She came off as self centered, childish/immature, impulsive and unrealistic in her expectations. But the author does a good job of supplying her back story to explain why change is difficult for her. Even though I did not particularly care for the main character, I did like this book. I also liked how the story unfolded and Louise began to flourish in her new life. By the end of the book, I did begin to like Louise more. This book was well written, very nicely paced and quite an enjoyable read. I would definitely read more books by this author
