did not like it

Not my favourite Jenny Hale. The main character was not endearing and the writing style wasn’t engaging.

Also, I’m not a fan of feisty grandmas in stories. It’s becoming a tired trope for me.

Reflecting more I’m dropping it a star because I really feel like it was a badly written book. Almost felt like it was an early work Hale dug out of a drawer to meet a deadline. There are all sorts of juvenile writing tricks—the main character’s name is FAITH SUMMERS, for heaven’s sake!—and the gooey happy ending felt forced and unearned.
