A funny and timeless novel from Luci Adams in the vein of Sophie Cousens and Kelly Harms featuring:

*One horrible, “bury your head under the covers” kind of day

*Two adorable children to nanny; and

*Their very hot, very single father

Daisy has realized you really can hit rock bottom when you lose your job, your boyfriend, and are estranged from your sister all at once. Seeking to claw her way out from the very definition of a bad year, her plan is to start by simply looking like she’s clawing her way out of rock bottom. On Instagram. Obviously.

But when she takes a stopgap job as a nanny to help a single father with his two young girls, being immersed in a close-knit, loving family starts to poke holes in her plan. Can making her not-so-picture-perfect life look perfect online really help her derailed career get back on track? Can it mend her relationship with her unreliable and painfully irritating sister? And can it get her back in the arms of her unbelievably beautiful and shallow ex…and as she gets closer to someone new, does she even want to?

A sparkling and bright novel of love, second chances, and finding your way in the age of ennui and influencers, It Must Be True Then is a delight for the millennial and Gen Z age.

IT MUST BE TRUE THEN is a perfect rom-com that just came at the right time in my life. I love rom-coms that take us on a personal journey that's not entirely just about the romance, and this was one of those books. Adams explores themes of loneliness, career indecision, our innate need to have it all, while also providing a compelling and funny romance to boot. Definitely one of the best rom-coms to look out for in the early quarter of 2024!

Thank you St Martin's Press and Netgalley for my review copy.

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book was SO GOOD!!! I literally just finished reading it and I miss it already. I miss the characters, I miss the story and I miss the family.

Daisy loves her work. Loves it so much. Yet she gets fired, after 13 loyal years, when she truthfully tells off potential clients in a meeting. Her rock-bottom follows when her "boyfriend" breaks up with her via Instagram direct message.

She runs into 2 young girls in the grocery store one night and decides she needs to make sure they're safe. What follows is funny, heartfelt and very emotional.

Archie, father to the 2 young girls, isn't ready for Daisy when she shows up in his doorstep to interview for the nanny position. In fact, he doesn't know anything about a nanny as it was his girlfriend looking for one for his girls, not him.

The slowest burn ever follows their meeting but the outcome is glorious and so worth the ride.

I really hope this book has a sequel because I would love to read more about this family!!

I would definitely recommend this book!!!

10* stars. I adored this book. The story was beautiful and so relevant right now. It was a beautiful slow burn romance. The side characters, especially the little ones, were such a great addition. I look forward to reading more from this author. I can't recommend this book enough.
