Description from the publishers through Netgalley:
Three generations. Seven days. One big secret. The author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake unfolds a mother-daughter story told by three women whose time to reckon with a life-altering secret is running out.
Gina Zoberski wants to make it through one day without her fastidious mother, Lorraine, cataloguing all her faults, and her sullen teenage daughter, May, snubbing her. Too bad there’s no chance of that. Her relentlessly sunny disposition annoys them both, no matter how hard she tries. Instead, Gina finds order and comfort in obsessive list-making and her work at Grilled G’s, the gourmet grilled cheese food truck built by her late husband.
But when Lorraine suffers a sudden stroke, Gina stumbles upon a family secret Lorraine’s kept hidden for forty years. In the face of her mother’s failing health and her daughter’s rebellion, this optimist might find that piecing together the truth is the push she needs to let go..
Gina’s world has been crashing down around her since her husband’s unfortunate death. Her relationship with her teenage daughter is one of stress and turmoil. She doesn’t know how to communicate with her and barely does until she is forced into it. Adding to her lists of stress, her mother suffers a sudden stroke and long held secret is forced into the light.
I liked this story but I am finding that it was a bot forgettable. I finished this book at the beginning of the week and have found myself having to read the description in order to recall the plot and my feelings about it. Amy writes well and is descriptive but maybe this wasn’t the story for me.
I gave this book 3 crowns.
I received an E-ARC of this book from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
