New York Times bestselling author Tracey Garvis Graves takes readers on a life affirming journey, where two lost souls find the unexpected courage to love again.

Thirty-four-year-old Wren Waters believes that if you pay attention, the universe will send you exactly what you need. But her worldview shatters when the universe delivers two life-altering blows she didn’t see coming, and all she wants to do is put the whole heartbreaking mess behind her. No one is more surprised than Wren when she discovers that geocaching—the outdoor activity of using GPS to look for hidden objects—is the only thing getting her out of bed and out of her head. She decides that a weeklong solo quest geocaching in Oregon is exactly what she needs to take back control of her life.

Enter Marshall Hendricks, a psychologist searching for distraction as he struggles with a life-altering blow of his own. Though Wren initially rebuffs Marshall’s attempt at hiker small talk, she’s beyond grateful when he rescues her from a horrifying encounter farther down the trail. In the interest of safety, Marshall suggests partnering up to look for additional caches. Wren’s no longer quite so trusting of the universe—or men in general—but her inner circle might argue that a smart, charismatic psychologist isn’t the worst thing the universe could place in her path.

What begins as a platonic road trip gradually blossoms into something deeper, and the more Wren learns about Marshall, the more she wants to know. Now all she can do is hope that the universe gets it right this time.

Wren + Marshall

Life hasn't been very kind to Wren these last few months.
And instead of spending more time all sad in bed she decides to go on a Geocache mission to Oregon.
That's where we meet Marshall. He's kinda also on the run from his life. Even though he should know how to deal with things because he's a psychologist. 

Will these two lost souls find a new happily ever after together?

I loved this.

I'm a fall/autumn girl and this book has this rainy gloomy mood and I just loved it. It's all so sad and heartbreaking. But also not. Because Wren got out of bed and she's trying to find some fun again in life. Marshall is just the perfect person to be with her in that time. They're both the perfect person for each other.
But we just don't know if we'll get a happy end for them - together. Or if life is not yet done hurting them.
I just loved reading this. I might have cried a bit here and there!
And I'm so here for the movie or series! GIMMEE!

A tiny little thing. I love the cover - but it could be a bit misleading. A reader might think that the person with the hat in the front is a little girl - which she is not - she's our 34 year old heroine Wren!

THE TRAIL OF LOST HEARTS was such a wonderful book! Sad, heartbreaking, rainy, hopeless but also so very sweet and funny and full of life and friendship and hope and love and all the things! Just beautiful! READ IT!
