This is a book I came across on the Libby app through my local library. I loved the cover…I am so glad I took a chance on this one!
Three generations come together in this one. We have the grandmother, her two daughters, and her sole granddaughter. Suddenly, her daughter (who is living in England) has her world turned upside down and she ends up back in her hometown of Martha’s Vineyard.
Each of these women have their own secret. The only question is when they will all be revealed. As living in the same area goes on, the closer they become and the more the secrets start to slide out on their own. Of course, the first big reveal comes untimely, in the middle of a funeral. Did that grab your attention?
This book tugged at my heartstrings. There was so much growth in everyone. It also made me happy because no matter how their relationship was at the end of the day, family was still there for one another. It had the ever so gracious plot line of romance conjoined with family happenings; sometimes I was smiling and sometimes I was sad. This book really pulled me in and had me rooting for everyone.
4.5 stars for me, rounded up to 5 on rating sites. I love a good chick lit book and this was a prime example of a GREAT one. It wasn’t cheesy or overly romantic, it had an amazing balance of just life happenings. If you’re looking for a great contemporary read, put this on your radar!
