About the Author

Author Leigh Himes has spent fourteen years working in the public relations field. Born and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, she now lives just outside of Philadelphia with her husband and their two children. The One That Got Away is her first book.


"An enchanting novel about the choices we make in life and love--by turns hilarious, poignant, and nostalgic. Himes's novel will make you revisit all the "what ifs" you've ever contemplated, from fleeting encounters to almost-weddings . . . a lively debut that will strike a chord in anyone with a romantic past."--Nicholas Sparks, author of The Notebook and See Me
"In the spirit of Lionel Shriver's The Post-Birthday World, Leigh Himes delivers a fascinating novel about the road not taken. I loved the concept and execution of this clever, thought-provoking love story."--Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Rumor
"[A] brilliantly realized wish-fulfillment scenario in the vein of Liane Moriarty . . . [Himes's] examination of how the choices we make can define who we become will resonate with readers. For anyone who ever wondered 'What if?'"--Booklist
"Himes explores what could have been in this charming debut novel."--Kirkus Reviews

"Himes takes an intriguing look at how a simple yes could change a person's entire life . . . the effort is a rewarding investigation of how all that glitters may not be gold."--Library Journal
"Himes's portrait of an outsider trying to fit into a narrow new role works well; Abbey is reminiscent of the snarky Jill Weber character on Bravo's Odd Mom Out."--Publishers Weekly
"Himes's well-constructed comic novel adds thought-provoking depth to a charming be-careful-what-you-wish-for story."--Shelf Awareness

"A fresh, creative love story."--Good Housekeeping
