"It's summer in the city and passions are soaring along with the temperature - for everyone but Mitchell Fisher, who hates all things romance. He relishes his job cutting off the padlocks that couples fasten to the famous "love story" bridge. Only his young daughter, Poppy, knows that behind his prickly veneer, Mitchell still grieves the loss of her mother. Then one hot day, everything changes when Mitchell courageously rescues a woman who falls from the bridge into the river. He's surprised to feel an unexpected connection to her, but she disappears before he can ask her name. Desperate to find out her identity, Mitchell is shocked to learn she's been missing for almost a year. He teams up with her spirited sister, Liza, on a quest to find her again. However, she's left only one clue behind - a message on the padlock she hung on the bridge."--Publisher.

The small English city that Patrick (The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, 2017; The Library of Lost and Found, 2019) brings to life in her new novel is known for its "love story" bridges, on which couples fasten padlocks to demonstrate their feelings. But Mitchell's job is to remove the locks to preserve the bridges. Once a promising architect, he has cut back professionally to care for his daughter, Poppy, after her mother's death. When a young woman accidentally slips while hanging a lock, Mitchell jumps in the river to save her life, thereby forever changing his own. Mitchell's heroism inspires people from all over to write to him with stories of love and loss, while the woman, who promptly vanishes, turns out to be the sister of Poppy's music teacher, Liza, and she had been missing for a year. Through a new friendship with Liza, Mitchell discovers how closed off he's been to reconciling his grief and guilt and to finding joy again. Patrick blends romance, mystery, and quirkiness to highly entertaining effect. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
