About the Book
Emma Woodson is hoping the cobblestone streets of Nantucket and the charm of her late husband’s family cottage will be the fresh start she and her young son, CJ, need. Securing a dream job at an art gallery is one more step along the path to a new life . . . and away from a piece of her history she hopes will never be revealed. Falling in love with the kind and handsome guy she hires to clean out the rental apartment above the garage wasn’t part of the plan.
Jameson Shaw came to Nantucket for one reason: deliver his letter to Emma and never return. But when he sees an opportunity to help her, he takes a chance, desperate to atone for his past. He never planned to keep his connection to her husband a secret or to fall in love with her. After all, he knows that their new relationship might not survive the discovery of who he really is.

In My Opinion
When it comes to writing a novel that evokes emotions, it’s hard to beat Courtney Walsh. And in What Matters Most readers are given not one, but two lead characters who are trying to come to terms with their pasts.
Emma’s best friend has challenged her to live her life after tragedy. In many ways, she’s going through the motions, but light is starting to come in through the cracks. And then she meets Jamie. This man makes her want to live. But Jamie is dealing with his own demons—including the reason he came to Nantucket and to Emma’s door.
Yes, much of the tension in this book is because Emma and Jamie are holding back their biggest secrets, but the truth is, just like Emma and Jamie, we are held captive by guilt and shame at times and are in no hurry to expose those sides of us.
