In this utterly charming debut?perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern?s P.S., I Love You and Allison Winn Scotch?s Time of My Life?one woman sets out to complete her old list of childhood goals, and finds that her lifelong dreams lead her down a path she never expects.
1. Go to Paris
2. Have a baby, maybe two
3. Fall in love
Brett Bohlinger seems to have it all: a plum job, a spacious loft, an irresistibly handsome boyfriend. All in all, a charmed life. That is, until her beloved mother passes away, leaving behind a will with one big stipulation: In order to receive her inheritance, Brett must first complete the life list of goals she?d written when she was a naïve girl of fourteen. Grief-stricken, Brett can barely make sense of her mother?s decision?her childhood dreams don?t resemble her ambitions at age thirty-four in the slightest. Some seem impossible. How can she possibly have a relationship with a father who died seven years ago? Other goals (Be an awesome teacher!) would require her to reinvent her entire future. As Brett reluctantly embarks on a perplexing journey in search of her adolescent dreams, one thing becomes clear. Sometimes life?s sweetest gifts can be found in the most unexpected places.
