Allison, the perfect, is just released from jail - for a death. Her younger sister, Brynn is avoiding Allison at all costs because seeing her would bring it all back.
And in the midst of all this sibling turmoil readers are introduced to Claire and her bookstore. Claire, the adopted mom of Joshua who kindly offered Allison a job in her bookstore. And then there is Charm, the girl who hangs out in the self-help section at the bookstore and wants to be a nurse.
These four women cross paths - and of course things are changed forever - this wouldn't be a great book if things like that didn't happen!
This is a book written by the sister of one of my coworkers. :)
I've been slow to read any of Gudenkauf's books. It's sort of like my hesitancy to watch a movie everyone else is recommending - what happens if it doesn't live up to others' recommendations?
Well - this lived up to the recommendations! Read it!
