I received this book through a first-reads giveaway.

Things Remembered reads like a sappy made for tv movie. The characters in this book are one dimensional, and I couldn't relate to any of them or their experiences. Karla seems to be a multitude of contradictions: she's bitter and filled with anger yet bears no hard feelings toward the ex-husband who cheated on her and she's a seriously devoted business woman who spends no time actually working. The author includes a few recipes at the end of the book which I thought was a nice idea considering how much of the book takes place cooking and sharing recipes in the kitchen. Ultimately this book feels forced and overly sentimental to the point of cheesy.
