Good story, set in Ontario and New York. It was interesting for me as the protagonist works for a municipal government, which is what I do also. Some of the dilemmas felt freakishly familiar and others—thank goodness!—didn‘t. If you read the book you‘ll know what I‘m talking about 😊😂 I think the author did a good job in weaving the backstory into present day so we understand character motivation.

Rarely do I bail on a book, but this one was going absolutely nowhere. Guess I'll need a different book starting with J for #litsyatoz Got any suggestions?

Mehso-so

My first ARC, through #HCCFirstLook. I really enjoyed Hilton's writing style, and will definitely seek out other books of hers. However, this one only gets a so-so because I really disliked the main character. I felt no character growth from her, everything just sort of happened to her in the end. But if Hilton ever decided to write about the adults at Berry Point I'll read it in a heartbeat!

How cute is this?! I was selected by Harper Collins Canada to be one of their #HCCFirstLook readers for Just Like Family by Kaye Hilton.

Looks like a fun read, perfect to kick off summer! Will post further once I dive in!

(As you can tell, I'm pretty excited - this is my first ARC!)
