When it is hot as heck outside and there is nothing cool to do but reading as everything else makes you end up a sweaty mess, it is the perfect day for a speed reader.
I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

I was originally very excited to read this as the reviews looked promising! Unfortunately, I just really could not get into the story. It took me almost 3 weeks to read the 59 page excerpt and I'm someone who can usually rip through 400+ pages in a day. I did not like any of the characters and I found the writing style very simple. The pace was incredibly slow and sentences were very choppy which an ...more

This might be a really lovely novel. The excerpt introduces four friends who met at a cancer ward and lost a loved one to cancer. Amy, the main character, is struggling quite hard after losing her mother to cancer, especially since the disease changed her mother's personality.
It's a book about grief, about rebuilding your life after you have lost an important person in your life.

Melissa Storm is a mother first, and everything else second. She used to write under a pseudonym, but finally had the confidence to come out as herself to the world. Her fiction is highly personal and often based on true stories. Writing is Melissa's way of showing her daughter just how beautiful life can be, when you pay attention to the everyday wonders that surround us.
Melissa loves books so much, she maus.Melissa ...more
