    Oh how I truly wanted to love this book like I did Good Grief, but unfortunately it just fell completely flat - a pale imitation with a similar plot line. The characters did not resonate and the plot did not hold together. There were random chapters focusing on the deceased wife which had no coherence and a barely believable murder theme that came out of left field.

    Rudy’s wife dies unexpectedly, plunging Rudy into grief and depression. As a part-time piano player in Nordstrom, Rudy befriends Sasha, a salesperson who has also suffered an unimaginable tragedy. As Sasha and Rudy begin a relationship, Rudy falls victim to his deep depression. An interesting story, with different characters and a hopeful story line. I liked it.

    I tried really hard to get interested in this book. I got 35% through and finally gave up. The story is a great one there just wasn’t anything there to keep me interested.

    Lolly Winston's Good Grief was one of those books that took me by surprise. It was an unexpected pleasure; sad, funny, relatable. Therefore, I squealed in delight upon spying a third novel from the talented author. I didn't even bother to read the back cover, merely plucked it from the ARC shelf and raced home.
    At first, it seemed as though Me for You might simply be a retelling of Good Grief albeit this time with the roles reversed. However, although there are defi

    I am and will continue to be a huge Lolly Winston fan, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed in this one. Good Grief is one of my favorite books of all time, and it felt a little like Winston was trying to go back there and bring up all the same feelings, but not as successfully. It was still a sweet story, and I really liked the depiction of grief as being normal and okay. But for me, this was done so beautifully in Good Grief that such a similar story looking to evoke similar emotions was ...more

    This is a gentle story. Sad and yet hopeful. But it’s quiet with most of the plot taking place in the characters’ thoughts. I really enjoyed the book and found it very authentic. But I can see from other reviews that it isn’t for everyone. Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for the arc.
