Jennifer Wiener has given us another winner. This is ultimate beach reading with twists and turns that you won’t see coming.
Fortunate enough to receive an advance reader copy of this, I dove right in and didn’t want to stop reading (and pretty much didn’t; I read this one in mere hours over a snowy weekend). Also, I read this during a personally trying time - my dad died less than two weeks ago and this novel was a lifeline, a happy escape from a bitter and cold start to 2022. Reading is probably my favorite form of self-care and I’ve been doing a lot of it these past few days.
Okay, I’ve had a full day to work out my feelings regarding this one.
I loved it, pure and simple. It was exactly what I needed to read right now, from the house herself down to Lord Farquaad, the corgi - each and every character enriched this book and you’re rooting for them all.
