The year of second chances / Lara Avery.

Avery, Lara, (author.).


Robin Lindstrom spent her first year as a young widow cocooned in the safe haven of the Minnesota farmhouse she once shared with Gabe, the love of her life - the man she thought she'd be with til the end. But her world is turned upside down when she receives an email informing her that her late husband has enrolled in something called “Bubbl”,a dating service. The app subscription lasts 12 months; use it!, Gabe's message-from-the-grave reads. I don't like the thought of you being alone. If you won't do it for yourself, do it as a favor to me. Please. After twelve months of pulling herself together, Robin's fragile equilibrium is knocked sideways. How could Gabe, of all people, be asking her to venture out into the murky waters of 21st century online dating? As her underemployed brother, Theo, points out, it's “only” for a year, and it's basically Gabe's last request. And so Robin tentatively takes steps to put herself out into the world once more, even if it means awkward outings at bowling alleys, club-hopping with DJs she meets online, and stammering conversations at dinner. Along the way, she's surprised to find herself meeting new people, trying new things ;and even getting to know a new version of herself. Because everyone deserves a second chance at love and loving life.--Amazon.
