It Had to Be You is an entertaining romantic comedy about linked love stories perfect for fans of Love Actually. I really enjoyed all these love stories and enjoyed how different they were. All of the characters have very different personalities. The couples are diverse with a same sex couples and an interracial couple, and it is discussed how this affects their relationship. The couples are all different ages with some just meeting while others have known each other for years. It Had to Be You is told from multiple perspectives which adds to the story. When Liv’s husband, Eliot, unexpected dies he leaves half of their wedding planning business to his young girlfriend, Savannah. Liv and Savannah have to learn to work together in order to save the business. Savannah looks up to Liv and wants advice since she has no previous experience. Liv is not happy to work with her husband’s girlfriend. I enjoyed the progression of their friendship. I recommend It Had to Be You to fans of romantic comedies and linked stories.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Danny Campbell, Feodor Chin, Frankie Corzo, and Robin Eller. All of the narrators did a great job bringing their characters to life. I enjoyed the different voices to make it easy to know which character was talking.
Thank you Emilys Bestler Books/Atria and Simon & Schuster Audio for It Had to Be You.
