From Sarah Dessen, the beloved New York Times bestselling author of SAINT ANYTHING and JUST LISTEN, comes a new novel set in the world of wedding planning

Is it really better to have loved and lost? Louna's summer job is to help brides plan their perfect day, even though she stopped believing in happily-ever-after when her first love ended tragically. But charming girl-magnet Ambrose isn't about to be discouraged now that he's met the one he really wants. Maybe Louna's second chance is standing right in front of her.

Sarah Dessen's many fans will adore this latest novel, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story with humor, romance, and an ending that is so much more than happily-ever-after.

A charming romantic comedy

As the daughter of the most in-demand wedding planner in town, Louna Barrett is an expert on romance. When it comes to love, however, tragedy has left her closed off to the possibility. But when a client’s obnoxious yet charming brother, Ambrose, joins the wedding-planning team, he encourages Louna to give epic love another chance.

Bestselling author Sarah Dessen is known for her captivating stories of self-discovery, resilience and first love. In Once and for All, she creates a rich cast of characters and a vivid backdrop, deftly portraying not only budding romances but also evolving friend and family relationships. The real magic of the novel is the tug of war between the whimsy of Louna’s summer job orchestrating lavish weddings and her grief for her lost first love.

While there are Easter eggs sprinkled throughout for longtime fans (an appearance from Auden West, visits to Jump Java), Once and for All stands on its own, promising to delight first-time Dessen readers as Louna learns to believe in second chances.
