This was the first book I ever read in the "next" series and I must say that it was a nice change from the mainstream chic lit that I usually read.I thought the story was very good.Once the main character got to England I really started enjoying this book.

He left her a cottage in England...and a photograph with the words "I'm sorry" written on it...

Marjorie Maitland's life was totally predictable-just the way she liked it. But when her husband died, he left her a deed to a cottage in England. The old Margie would have left this alone. But the new Margie had to make this trip to England to discover if her whole life had been a lie...

This book is part of a line of "What's Next?" novels, about women who are looking for what's next in their lives, about rediscovery and reconnection.

There's the life you planned. And then there's what comes next.

A good story about a newly widowed woman who finds out her husband had a family in England she knew nothing about. Nicely written, easy read.

He left her a cottage in England...and a photograph with the words "I'm sorry" written on it...

Marjorie Maitland was used to a certain routine--she'd built her life around the safety of predictability. Then the unexpected happened--her husband died. But grief was not the only emotion that overwhelmed her. The mystery her husband left behind puzzled her--a deed to a cottage in England. Where had that come from? And who was the woman in the photograph? Margie knew trouble when it knocked on her door.

The old Margie, safe in her suburban home, would have avoided this potentially humiliating situation. But things were changing. The new Margie had to unravel this tangled web and get to the truth. And that meant a trip to England to find out if her entire life had been a lie...or to discover the best parts of the rest of her life.

I wasn't a fan of this book's overwrought emotions and trite writing.
