Happy Sunday all!
Delighted to share with you today my review for this book that really gave me a lot to think about. Engauging from first page to last! Thank you so much Anne for my invitation to the tour!🥰
“The morning after my father’s funeral, I came home and found my husband in bed with the next-door neighbor.”
This was the first sentence in this book and it sure caught my attention and started my inner dialogue. I have a strong opinion on infidelity, like I think if a person cheats you should leave and never look back! Now I do realize this is not everyone’s choice and I’ve had friends choose to stay and I’ve had to respect their choice, but I will never truly understand it. This book gave a real and raw look at Roxy and her choices in the aftermath of her husband‘s infidelity. Things aren’t always black-and-white and this book made me see the gray in this situation a little clearerer.
This is my first book by Sheila O’Flanagan, but it most certainly will not be my last. Her writing style was so engaging and readable, I was completely invested in the story and these characters. The story was told with so much heart and humor. Roxy was such a genuine character, a character I truly cared about by the end of this book. The chauffeur business was interesting and I really liked how she really took charge. My favorite part of the book however was the bond between mother and daughter, I loved how there for one another these ladies were. Each of them was grieving their own loss and it just really brought home how important family is in our lives.
This just was a well told engrossing story that made me think, laugh, and even shed a tear. A perfect summer read for those who love some substance with their fluff!
