Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Erin Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin A. and Erin M. are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Erin Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Erin A. has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.

Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Erin Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Erin does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her.

But when a shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, Erin's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything Erin thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated

Wow, I’m blown away by this book!  You know when a book is so good you have nothing to say because it’s just that good?  That’s how I feel about Happenstance.  I thought this book was beautifully written.  Yes, it’s a novella and yes, it’s short but it was sweet and to the point.

I fell in love Erin Easter.  Her story gave me the feels like no other.  It’s one that will stay with me for a very long time.  Her life may not be perfect but I love how she never gave up.  If I was to trade places with her for a day, I’m not sure if I can handle all that life has thrown at her.  She’s such a strong individual.

I enjoyed getting to know Weston.  His courage to stand up and protect Erin was very heartwarming.  I also enjoyed seeing their friendship blossom into something more.

The twist in the book, I thought that was nicely done.

I highly recommend this book.  Jamie McGuire is a favorite author of mine and I absolutely love all of her books.  She’s exceptionally gifted in writing and I’m looking forward to reading more about Erin and Weston and see what’s in store for them.
