On the heels of the highly praised The Stuff That Never Happened, Maggie Dawson returns this April with THE OPPOSITE OF MAYBE—a heartfelt and exceptionally human novel about the best mistakes a person can make. In the tradition of Maeve Binchy, Kristin Hannah, and Debbie Macomber, smart, funny women’s fiction about relationships is always in style. That’s why we feel it’s a perfect choice for book clubs at your libraries and want to give you an early read.

The story of two loves at the worst possible moment. Rosie’s relationship with Jonathan is comfortable, easy, and seems unlikely to ever change, until suddenly it does. After nearly decades of living together, he ﬁnally proposes only after he has decided to move across the country, away from their tidy life. When Jonathan’s inability to consider Rosie’s needs ﬁnally pushes her too far, they take a temporary break…Rosie realizes just in time that sometimes you have to let go of everything you love in order to ﬁnd the life you were meant for. Amusing, witty, and altogether human, Rosie’s growth as she’s torn between two men, two ways of life, and two kinds of love, is heartfelt, funny, and warmly wonderful.
