's review

it was ok

The development of the plot of this book unfolds at the breakneck pace of O.J.'s Bronco chase on the LA 405 freeway, only it's not nearly as entertaining.

I always keep notes as I'm reading a book...quotes, pivotal moments, etc. I only had one note on this book upon completion and that was...

page 113

...that's how long it took for something of the most miniscule bit of interesting to happen in this book, and even that something was so cursory I nearly drowned in it's wake.

The best descriptive word that comes to mind for this story is LABORIOUS with a capital L for "LAWD LET THIS BOOK END ALREADY".

I looooved the domestic cray cray of Our House by this author but this book was insipid domestic and about as cray as Cocoa Puffs.

2 Stars ⭐⭐ because I thought the format was cleverly composed.

*** I received an ARC from via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ***

Lisa Aiello Felicia - I am struggling with this one right now. I've been at it for days. I keep wondering if there is going to be anything that redeems it and makes it forth getting to the end!!

Felicia @Lisa that would be a negative 😂

Diana OJ’s Bronco! 😂 Love this review, Felicia!

Jayme Your review is far superior to this book! Looking for a rerun of the OJ chase on youtube now....

Felicia Thank you Diana 💖🤪

Felicia @Jayme I'll never forget where I was during the OJ chase. I was home with my son, both suffering from chicken pox AND poison ivy at the same time 😕

marilyn Uh oh...I have this book in my TBR pile 😮 Great review Felicia 💖

Oh, your poor son and poor you. I'm so very allergic to poison ivy and just having that is bad enough.
