    I received this book as an ARC from the author and I’m so glad that I did!!!! I’ve had the pleasure to meet Leslie and the delightful Brooks in person, but I never met Scott. Through this book, I feel like I know him. Leslie channeled the pain of losing her husband into a tale that shows the love they had and what an amazing man and father Scott was. While the subject matter is inherently sad, I laughed as much as I cried. If you want to meet a wonderful, loving family, read this book.
