New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch is back with her third book, The One That I Want. Scotch’s latest is in stores now. This summer read is one you’ll definitely want to check out — all the hot women’s mags (including SheKnows) say so!

Redbook magazine picked The One That I Want for their June book pick. Glamour and Cosmo magazines picked The One That I Want as a sizzlin’ summer must-read.

Winn Scotch’s second novel, Time of My Life (a bestseller and the break-out book of her career), has been optioned by The Weinstein Company to be made into a movie with talent being attached soon. (We got the inside scoop that the same screenwriter who worked on The Ugly Truth starring Katherine Heigl is putting on finishing touches to the script.)

About The One That I Want

What if you woke up one day to all your dreams coming true…but those dreams were more like nightmares?

Tilly Farmer is thirty-two years old and has the perfect life she always dreamed of — married to her high school sweetheart, working as a school guidance counselor, trying for a baby. Perfect.

But one sweltering afternoon at the local fair, everything changes. Tilly wanders into a fortune teller’s tent and meets an old childhood friend, who offers her more than just a reading. “I’m giving you the gift of clarity,” her friend says. “It’s what I always thought you needed.” And soon enough, Tilly starts seeing things — her alcoholic father relapsing, staggering out of a bar with his car keys in hand; her husband uprooting their happy, stable life, a packed U-Haul in their driveway.

And even more disturbing, these visions start coming true. Suddenly Tilly’s perfect life, so meticulously mapped out, seems to be crumbling around her. And as she furiously races to keep up with — and hopefully change — her destiny, she faces the question: Which life does she want? The one she’s carefully nursed for decades, or the one she never considered possible?

What if you could see into the future? Would you want to know what fate has in store? Order The One That I Want — a sizzlin’ summer read you won’t want to miss.
