It All Comes Down to This: Unfortunately, this Book Was a Let Down for me. And I had VERY High Hopes.
I SIMPLY adored Therese Anne Fowler’s prior book A Good Neighborhood. It was in fact one of my favorite reads of 2019. I, therefore, couldn’t wait to get my hands on her next release..and then I did.
This is the story of three sisters, Beck, Claire, and Sophia, who are more or less estranged when their mother passes away after an illness and what happens thereafter.
Perhaps if I had liked one of the characters, I would have felt that “pull” – but sadly I did not. Perhaps if something happened to capture my attention, I would have liked it, but it did not.
The writing here is good. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t. The characterizations are fantastic – real, honest, and frankly, ugly at times, but that wasn’t enough to draw me in.
Though this novel wasn’t my favorite by this author, I will still be eagerly awaiting her next book, hoping that it’s more in line with A Good Neighborhood.
Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the arc.
