“Cecelia plucked one of the apple turnovers out of the box and took a bite.” 💛

This was a popular pick for book clubs! It was the marieclairemag pick for May and it was the readwithjenna pick as well! Now I can totally see why! I am always down for some family drama and the Strick family delivered. The book begins with a big accident and many revelations are divulged through the experiences of the Strick family. They live in a small town and the small town vibes were really well represented in the book. The main town square and the small main street were vivid and picturesque. The book follows a multi-generational family and the adult sibling relationships were so on point and realistic . The characters are flawed and messy but I think that’s the beauty of the book. I only wish the 3 sibling characters were flushed out a little more. I feel like I understood them about 75% but wanted a bit more, especially the 2 brothers. It reminded me a bit of The Most Fun We Ever Had which is a high compliment because that was one of my favorite books of 2019! The audiobook for this one was excellent – highly recommend!!! Thank you to Edelweiss and Riverhead Books for the opportunity to read and provide an honest review of this book.
Thank you to librofm for an ALC OG this book💛

  1. Eek this is out already. Oops I think I have waiting in edelweiss arcs. Darn. Probably gone now

  2. Interesting! I passed on this one, only because literary fiction hasn’t been holding my attention during this crazy time.

  3. Wow! I just saw your post featured on the @readwithjenna account as I was getting ready to watch the interview this morning! ❤️
