Bestselling author Eileen Goudge is back and better than ever with her latest literary marvel, Otherwise Engaged.

Ever wonder what it would be like to switch lives with someone for six months? Say perhaps your best friend? To have another opportunity to simply find out what if? And so it goes for best friends, Erin and Jessie…

Jessie left her small town to pursue her writing career and Erin stayed in the country. Both thought they had everything they wanted: Jessie, her career, and a handsome successful fiancé, Jonathon, and Erin had her inn, husband Skip and daughter Kayla. When Skip suddenly moves out of the family home and gives Erin the reason she needs to try something new, Jessie and Erin start to wonder if instead of living the lives they should have been living, they have been foolishly, Otherwise Engaged.

This exciting tale of realization is Goudge’s latest, and it’s nothing short of a literary triumph. Everyone wants to know where the road not traveled will take them, and using warm, approachable characters and an exceptionally well-developed plot, Goudge allows readers to take that revealing trip.

Jessie and Erin are both fascinating women who needed to take a walk through the grass on the other side of the street. Their stories are vivid and engaging and come across as an intimate conversation between best friends. Reader, Otherwise Engaged is one chat you don’t want to miss.
