Emily was the first grandparent in literature who came to my mind. I ❤️ the Emily books. Bonus: a picture of my grandmothers from back in the day. Aren‘t they cute! #FallTreasures #GrandparentsDay

Hello all, I am back from the dead. I had to get settled for my new job and new place with my significant other. I occasionally drive to my old place to visit my hermit crabs because our new home is not pet friendly. 😭 Anyhow, I finally finished Zama‘s Marriage Bureau for Rich People and it was too random for me. I found it lacking in many ways! Now I move on to this one. Anybody ever read this before?

Emily Maxwell, a widow whose grown children have long since moved away, dreams of visits from her grandchildren while mourning the turnover of her quiet Pittsburgh neighborhood. When her sister-in-law and sole companion, Arlene, faints at their favorite breakfast buffet, Emily's life changes in unexpected ways that force her to assume more independence. A quick and quiet read. 3/5 stars
