"I knew my husband, and right about now he was feeling a twitch in his personal Lowcountry and was trying to redirect his thoughts to something benign, like throwing a Frisbee with his boys."

"I know that. Let's just get Dad well. Then I can kill him."

And this is why I love her writing. She makes me giggle. Because who hasn't said that about a loved one?

Productive morning! Not something I would have picked up on my own, but it was September's book club book and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Good beachy, quick read; eclectic characters and some interesting concepts to discuss at our book club meeting.

It wasn't great, it wasn't terrible. I wasn't a fan of most of the characters even after they supposedly redeemed themselves. And Cookie? Lord help me I would have punched that miserable hag in the face.

TheBookAddict 🤣🤜🏽 makes me want to read it just to find out who this Cookie character is and what made her so terrible! 2y
Bostonmomx2 @TheBookAddict I generally don't react that strongly but she was unreal. But tbh, this book isn't worth a read. Too many unlikeable characters that never really redeemed themselves. 2y
Debiw781 Note to self: skip this book 😂 2y
Bostonmomx2 @Debiw781 lol yup!! 2y

I brought this to keep me entertained during any free moments at the middle school band concert. It will be a good beach book for the summer.

YES!! Another great warm weather read! ☀️ 🌊This is a story of friendship and how relationships change with time. I loved watching Eliza transform into a character that stands up for herself and prioritizes herself more as the story progresses. The tension here is just the perfect amount for outside reading - plenty of substance, but not too angsty as to make the story heavy. There is food, romance, travel, trust, and the right amount of drama.

Alfoster I love all her books! Need to read this one😍! 2y
intothehallofbooks @Alfoster Which of hers is your favorite? 2y
Alfoster I think Sullivan's Island. What about you? 2y
intothehallofbooks @Alfoster This is the first of hers that I've read! I loved it and I want to read more. Sullivan's Island might be a good starting place for me. Thank you!! 2y

Family, friends, old love, and trust collide in this new book from Dorthea Benton Frank. Could you be friends with your husband's old girlfriend? That is what Eliza must decide as a chance encounter on a family vacation with her husband's former girlfriend changes her life. A celebration of life, love, family, and trust that made for an enjoyable afternoon read and made me love author Dorthea Benton Frank again.

MimiLovesToRead @drbethandherkindle probably not. I won 4 books with them and sent email after email until finally i got my books. I'll never enter another one with this page. My friend won this book too and never received it either. 2y
drbethandherkindle @MimiLovesToRead I have actually won and received 2 other books from @WilliamMorrow so I thought this was extra weird. Once I even mistyped my zip code and still received that book in a week 😂 2y
