"In this dazzling new novel, Emily Giffin, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed, Where We Belong, and The One & Only introduces a pair of sisters who find themselves at a crossroads. Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious relationship. Josie was impulsive, spirited, and outgoing; Meredith hardworking, thoughtful, and reserved. When tragedy strikes their family, their different responses to the event splinter their delicate bond. Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late thirties, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single--and this close to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother--a feeling that is heightened when her ex-boyfriend's daughter ends up in her class. Determined to have the future she's always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands. On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she's married to a wonderful man, and together they're raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately, Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired. As the anniversary of their tragedy looms and painful secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them, but also come to terms with their own choices. In their journey toward understanding and forgiveness, both sisters discover they need each other more than they knew. and that in the recipe for true happiness, love always comes first. Emotionally honest and utterly enthralling, First Comes Love is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart--wherever that may lead. Praise for Emily Giffin "Emily Giffin ranks as a grand master. She has traversed the slippery slopes of true love, lost love, marriage, motherhood, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption that have led her to be called 'a modern-day Jane Austen.' "--Chicago Sun-Times "A dependably down-to-earth, girlfriendly storyteller."--The New York Times "Giffin's talent lies in taking relatable situations and injecting enough wit and suspense to make them feel fresh."--People "Emily Giffin is the creator of characters so real and so enthrallingly flawed that people sometimes forget they are fictional."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution "When it comes to writing stories that resonate with real women, bestselling author Emily Giffin has hit her stride."--San Francisco Chronicle "Giffin knows a thing or two about writing a page turner."--Southern Living "Giffin's writing is true, smart, and heartfelt."--Entertainment Weekly"-- "Meredith thought she'd done it all right - married the perfect man, had the perfect daughter - but as she grows increasingly restless, she can't help but wonder if she got the love part wrong. Josie has been happily single for years, but she wants a child of her own so much she's one bad Match.com date away from heading straight for the baby carriage all on her own. The sisters, whose relationship was strained by the tragic death of their older brother over a decade ago, find that they need each other more than they realized"--… (mais)

I was provided an advanced copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

I am a huge fan of Emily Giffin, so I was surprised to find that, at first, I struggled to stay interested, and I think it was because that I didn't like big sister Meredith, and I was annoyed by little sister Josie. And while I felt terrible, I was tired of hearing about Daniel.

But I hung in there, and I was well rewarded. Meredith's constant disapproval was just overwhelming, and Josie didn't seem quite as flighty or irresponsible as she was constantly made out to be. As the story unfolded, my opinions of them began to shift until I couldn't put it down.

And then it ended, and I was annoyed.

Giffin is a very talented writer and can tell a story, which is why I pick up her books time and again. Her writing is clean and straightforward, humorous at time, the story compelling and real. I finished the book in two sittings, so that says something, because I really struggled unit the midpoint of the book to like most of the main characters.

I wish I could give this three and a half stars; I kept vacillating between three and four because even though I thought the start was slow and it took a long while to care a whit about the characters, as the story progressed I loosened my judgement because she had caught me up in the tale - and then lost points for the ending. WHY? ( )

Not as good as some of her previous books, but still had me hooked and guessing the whole way. ( )

Two sisters are forever changed one night when their brother dies in a car accident. Daniel, the perfect brother and perfect son is gone in a flash, and nothing is the same. Josie holds a secret for 15 years, and Meredith questions her relationship with her husband, Nolan, who was Daniel's best friend. Is Nolan also holding something back?
I have to say that I felt Meredith was a very unhappy, complaining person. Josie was never confident of herself, and was trying to find herself. I didn't like either sister very much. In fact, while I really enjoyed Emily Giffin's first few books, this book - First Comes Love - and her last one - The One and Only, were not favorites by a long stretch. ( )

“But there is one constant, one thing you can always count on: that not only does love come first, but at the end, it is the only thing that remains.”

Giffin is one of my favorite authors and I think she is phenomenal. I always look forward to her new releases and enjoy her novels. Like many, I fell in love with her unputdownable first novels (Something Borrowed, and Something Blue). I feel her books have the right amount of wittiness, girlishness and drama. First Comes Love was entertaining and an easy breezy read. I liked most of the characters, but I am still not sure how I feel about Meredith…She was a bit annoying (perhaps that was Giffin’s intention?). If you have siblings, you will appreciate the storyline – especially if you are sisters. This novel reiterates how important and necessary a family is. ( )

I'm not sure why, but couldn't really get into the story. It wasn't the flipping back and forth, I just couldn't connect. I still enjoyed it and felt that it was written well and had good character development. I just really enjoyed Something Borrowed much better... ( )

"Very cool. Text it to me. I'll Insta it," I say, wishing that life were that easy.  Take the flawed image and simply crop it, brighten and saturate it, throw a fancy filter on it. Make it what you want it to be.
"I'd love that," I said, feeling that rush of new-friend excitement that becomes rarer the older you get.
No matter how you slice it, I remember thinking, life is tragic.
I wanted to be close like that, but couldn't imagine it ever happening.
"It's funny how grief is different for everyone...."
