Rainy Day Sisters
Thank you to NetGallery.com and to the publisher for the ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
Families – sometimes they are amazing groups of people who understand everything and sometimes the only thing that connects you is a last name and a bloodline. Reading how Juliet and Lucy forge a friendship and sisterhood out of almost nothing but some distant memories was very touching. Seeing their respective romances play out over the course of the novel was entertaining as well. I especially liked how the romances were a side story, and not the main focus of the book.
What I loved: Heartly-by-the Sea sounds like such a quaint small English village – nothing much to see but a true home to many. It sounds like a visit there is almost a visit back in time where everyone looked after everyone else.
What I didn’t love: Fiona – a mother of the year candidate for sure. Some people have so much bitterness and rage covering their heart that they cannot see the beauty and goodness in a child and it ruins their whole relationship.
What I learned: Family is not just who you’re related to, but also the people in your life that make it worthwhile.
Overall Grade: B+
