As I have written in my about page on my blog, I read many different genres of books, because I love diversity, sociology and culture. I don’t believe in just reading what is familiar, that’s a good way to miss out. I read genre’s of all kinds, even ones I am not familiar with, including Women’s fiction. Typing Women’s fiction drives me nuts, but that’s because I don’t believe gender belongs on inanimate objects. Everything should be unisex. But that’s a different rant for another day and I am digressing.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I give it 2 stars. It’s a good plot where 3 daughters return back to their mom’s home in Peachtree Georgia. I am one of 3 girls so I can somewhat relate to that. I also grew up in the south, and the story in relation to that is quite genuine. Each daughter is going through a personal crisis and they all, including their children return home to lick their wounds and start over. Their father was tragically killed on 9/11 and mom hasn’t dated since. Enter mom’s first love. Predictable after that.
The book read like an old Harlequin novel. I really didn’t like any of the characters and the story could have been so much more – more depth, more strength, more charisma.
This book is a trilogy but I can honestly say I won’t be reading it.
Thank you to NetGalley, Kristy Woodson Harvey, and Gallery Books for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review.
