One Last Thing by Rebecca St. James and Nancy Rue

Goodreads | Amazon
A hope-filled soon-to-be bride makes a discovery about her fiancé that rocks her world and provokes a maelstrom of decisions and self-discovery.

Tara Faulkner has dreamed of her wedding and the life she and her fiancé Seth will share in their hometown of Savannah… and by all accounts, it should be a charmed one. But when she discovers three weeks before the wedding that Seth is seriously addicted to pornography, Tara's dreams are shattered.

She must decide whether she will stand by Seth, but she also must let go of the dream she shaped for herself and discover a real vision for her life – and where it will come from. With all else falling apart, Tara encounters an unexpected – and unlikely – group of women mentors. They help her peel back the layers of shaming secrets and begin to clearly see the real issues of her generation. 

In the end, she's able to make a decision based on God's vision – not her own.

One Last Thing by Rebecca St. James and Nancy Rue provides an interesting read on relationships and identity. Just weeks before her fairytale wedding, Tara discovers a devastating secret about Seth, her groom-to-be, that turns her planned-out life upside-down. In the midst of engulfing feelings of shame, betrayal and depression, Tara must make choices for her future, towards healing and hope. It’s an emotional and difficult journey that St. James and Rue take their readers on, but it’s a relevant, rewarding and inspiring read. I would recommend it for fans of contemporary fiction.
