A gripping novel about the kind of love that never lets go, and the heart's capacity to remember, from the New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter and The Violets of March
Enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner with her fiance, Ryan, at one of Seattle's chicest restaurants, Kailey Crain can't believe her good fortune: She has a great job as a journalist and is now engaged to a guy who is perfect in nearly every way. As she and Ryan leave the restaurant, Kailey spies a thin, bearded homeless man on the sidewalk. She approaches him to offer up her bag of leftovers, and is stunned when their eyes meet, then stricken to her very core: The man is the love of her life, Cade McAllister.
When Kailey met Cade ten years ago, their attraction was immediate and intense--everything connected and felt right. But it all ended suddenly, leaving Kailey devastated. Now the poor soul on the street is a faded version of her former beloved: His weathered and weary face is as handsome as Kailey remembers, but his mind has suffered in the intervening years. Over the next few weeks, Kailey helps Cade begin to piece his life together, something she initially keeps from Ryan. As she revisits her long-ago relationship, Kailey realizes that she must decide exactly what--and whom--she wants.
Alternating between the past and the present, Always is a beautifully unfolding exploration of a woman faced with an impossible choice, a woman who discovers what she's willing to save and what she will sacrifice for true love.

Jios (Goodnight June) newest novel explores intersections of past and present and the complexities of love. Kailey Crane, a journalist at the Seattle Herald, is happily engaged and looking forward to her future when she has encounters a homeless man she recognizes as Cade, the man she once called the love of her life. Alternating between 2008 and a decade earlier, the narrative details Kaileys relationship with Cade and her present life with her fiancé, Ryan. When Kailey realizes that Cade does not remember who he is or what happened to him, she embarks on a quest to help him find out. She must confront her own past as she tries to figure out what she really wants. The story is most compelling when exploring Kaileys internal conflict, though her choice between the two men is made too easy. And though the mystery surrounding Cade ultimately seems underdeveloped, fans of Jios work will still find her signature emotional depth. (Feb.)
