What a fun story to read! I received this book from the publisher (Harper Collins) as an advance review copy. When I requested it, I have to admit it was purely based on the name and the cover. I hadn’t looked into what it was about or anything like that. I hadn’t even looked into the other books the author, Sonya Sones, has written.
I thought the cover looked playful and summery and the name intrigued me. I had the vague idea that maybe it was a chick-lit type of mystery or something.
What I found instead was this delightful departure from the norm. The story is written in poetry format, making it a quick read and very easy on the eyes. Because of this, I managed to devour the book in about two days.
It’s a book that many married women can relate to, even if they don’t have a daughter going off to college. (Heck, my kids aren’t even in elementary school yet, but I felt completely in sync with the main character and her worries and problems.)
While there isn’t a whole lot of depth to the book, I found it refreshing and a nice change of pace from the books I usually read.
This is great beach or pool-side reading and I recommend it for a light change of pace. It’s still chick-lit, just not the kind I was expecting.
3.5 out of 5 stars
