Josey is 27 years old. She lives at home and takes care of her mother. One morning she wakes up and Della Lee Baker is hiding in her closet. Della Lee says she needs a place to hide for a few days before she leaves town. Josey reluctantly lets her stay. That one small act starts to change her life. Della Lee sends her to a deli to pick up a sandwich and she meets Chloe who becomes her friend. She starts spending time with Chloe, leaving the house more, and gaining some independence. This new independence puts her on the path to a confrontation with her mother. She will have to decide whether to stay in her comfortable shell or have the courage to break out and have the life she has always dreamed of. This was a nice light read. I did figure out one of the secrets early on, but that didn’t keep the story from being enjoyable. There was a surprise twist with the mom that I didn’t see coming. The minor magic the author puts into the story just gives it a light quirky quality that is fun to read.
