|Summary, etc.:||"On a rainy October night in Kentucky, recently divorced therapist Tallie Clark is on her way home when she spots a man precariously standing on the edge of a bridge. Without a second thought, Tallie pulls over and jumps out of the car into the pouring rain. She convinces the man to join her for a cup of coffee, and he eventually agrees to come back to her house, where he finally, reluctantly, shares his first name: Emmett. Over the course of the emotionally-charged weekend that follows, Tallie makes it her mission to provide a safe and comfortable space for Emmett, although she doesn't confess that she works as a therapist. However, Emmett is not the only one who needs help - and he has secrets of his own. Alternating between Tallie and Emmett's perspectives as they inch closer to the truth of what brought Emmett to the bridge, This Close to Okay is an uplifting, powerful story of two strangers brought together by wild chance at the moment they need it the most."--Provided by publisher.|

In her second novel, Cross-Smith (Whiskey & Ribbons, 2018) once again shows adeptness at exploring the range of human emotions, particularly the fragility of relationships in the wake of tragedy. Having a difficult time moving on after her recent divorce, Tallie makes a rash decision when she spots a man looking like he is about to jump from a bridge. She convinces Emmett to come with her instead, eventually spending the weekend. Tallie doesn't tell him she's a therapist, for fear that he will think she sees him as a project, but Emmett is hiding even bigger secrets that are hinted at during chapters from his POV. Tallie is suspicious of Emmett but also drawn to him; they seem to be just what each other needs at that moment. The weekend turns into a fairly rote new-love story, even with the added suspense that Emmett is hiding something terrible and possibly terrifying. But Cross-Smith is no fan of fairytales, offering twists that keep the novel interesting and realistic. A page-turning pleaser with a heroine to love. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
