After losing her job at a swanky Seattle art gallery and finding out her father has been hospitalized, single mother Autumn Cole reluctantly returns to her tiny hometown of Fairfield, Washington to put the pieces of her life back together.GoodReads
Her disgruntled twelve-year old son isn’t thrilled about going from hip to hick, but Autumn’s got it worse. She resumes her role as the daughter of the town drunk, promptly facing a crisis with her father that’s been decades in the making.
Running into Henry Tobler, and nearly breaking his nose, is almost more than she can handle, but can rediscovering love–and herself–with her “what if” guy teach Autumn to forgive before it’s too late?

I really love how this The “What If” Guy begins by telling the back story of the two main characters, Henry and Autumn, and why they are ended their relationship. Then fast forward thirteen years, when Autumn and her 12 year old son Elliott move back to her hometown to help take care of father. When Autumn takes her son to the first day of school she sees the man who she hasn't heard from since she told him that she was pregnant with someone else’s child, Henry.
I really love a book that will make you cry and laugh. The “What If” Guy is great and will tug on your heart strings. It shows you that there can be second chances and to never give up on love. It also shows you that a true friend will always be there no matter what happens. I would highly recommend this book to everyone!
