    I love this heart melting, tear jerker, emotional, riveting and realistic family story! You can find a part of yourself written in this story. The dynamics between mothers and daughter, daughter with father are so familiar.

    So far I think this is one of my favorite Kristan Higging’s books tells about life, happiness, dreams, realities, betrayal, lies, thin red line between life and death, childhood sweethearts, resentments, infertility, lack of communication.

    The story is told by POVS of four

    ***Thanks to my friends at Berkley, Penguin Random House for allowing me to download the advance copy of this book!***

    Welp, it's the holiday break and that weird in-between time where it's the end of the year/beginning of the next year and you don't really even know what day it is but who cares?! Yes, if you're thinking that it's the perfect time to binge read books, you're correct! Imagine my excitement to gain access to an early copy of Kristan Higgins' upcoming novel. Amazing!

    I'll be honest:

    Beautifully drawn characters in this family drama. There was both comedy and tragedy. Both so well written.
    The subjects of infidelity, aging, life choices, love and joy are all represented fully and lovingly. I enjoyed every word and will read it again and again.

    Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. The book will be published on June 9th, 2020.

    Another feel good book by Kristan Higgins — full of her trademark humor, smart, snappy prose, likable characters, and uplifting endings. A good palate cleanser from all the serious reading I’ve been doing. I love the way she has continued to embed love in all forms — in this book, along with the requisite rediscovered lost

    Oliver rang a little shallow and Sadie was slightly annoying, but then, people are, sometimes.
