Regretting You Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller that People Magazine calls "a poignant, addictive read."
From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.
Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn't want to follow in her mother's footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn't have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris - Morgan's husband, Clara's father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she's been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

The book follows the story of a mother and daughter as they navigate the loss of husband and father, as well as a sister and Aunty. A story of betrayal and coming to terms with what has happen. Discovering new relationships and how to carry on.
This book as all the feels - definitely have some tissues handy!
Couldn’t put it down. Great happy ending after all that happened in the book. It’s lovely to really feel the emotions in the characters.
Stunning!!! Coho is a A+ writer who never disappoints me!!

For a start, the few twists were very thinly disguised; it was clear from early on exactly where the narrative was going. Now normally, I wouldn’t take exception to that, in the same way I don’t mind getting on a train and knowing its destination. But what makes any journey special is the scenery along the way. And with ‘Regretting You’, I just got the sense I’d seen it all before.
Yes, I was moved by the predicament of mum Morgan and teenage daughter Clara, whose lives are thrown into a tailspin when husband/dad Chris dies in a car crash alongside his sister-in-law Jenny. I think Hoover does a fine job of exploring their grief, anger and confusion. I liked Clara’s boyfriend Miller a lot and easily identified with the ‘first love’ theme. And I enjoyed the tension and poignancy in Morgan’s relationship with Jonah, Jenny’s partner.
For someone like me, though, who regularly blubs when reading, there should have been enough tugging of the heartstrings in this to see me through a whole box of tissues. On the contrary, not a single tear was shed. And not because it wasn’t an emotional story; it was, in spades. It was just all a little too formulaic.
While I can see why diehard fans would love this book regardless, I believe that many, if they’re honest, would admit, like me, to being a tad disappointed. And there’s the problem: when authors set a high bar, there are bound to be times when they don’t quite hit the mark. And this, unfortunately, is one of them
Thanks for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. You can find more candid book reviews on my Amazon profile page.
This book in true Hoover style delivers the punch and leaves you reeling. Then in Hoover style she very cleverly and patiently puts you back together. Well defined characters and heartbreaking narrative. Broke my heart but loved it anyway.

It’s beautiful and powerful as we’re used to from the author and it’s angsty and makes you think a lot of what would you do in those moments, the decisions that you’ve made would be the same? The feelings?
