The story of GM‘s recovery after the Great Recession is mostly depicted in media I have seen as a triumphant recovery. This book looks at the reality of what happened to average Americans when the GM plant in their town closed and stayed that way. It‘s clear from their experience that government and private programs, including retraining, are inadequate, allowing many to fall through the cracks. Excellent, balanced reporting.

squirrelbrain I found this fascinating when I read it a few years ago - it‘s a good one! 1d

The story here was pretty solid and the characters were interesting. But there was some weird stuff around therapy and a LOT of fat shaming that just grated after a while.

I like the worlds that Reichert creates (I‘ve read every one of her books), but I‘m often disappointed in the character development and, ultimately, the plot. This one has an anxious MC who can see ghosts and works for her high school nemesis. A set up with potential. But the plot had too much going on and the interactions between the two love interests felt off.

I do recommend checking Reichert out for fun romance.

Usually, I get a little judgmental when a romance isn‘t super steamy. This is a big exception! Absolutely no judgment here for this wonderfully sweet (& sometimes sexy) story. And no judgment from ME is really an accomplishment! #Capricorn

This one‘s got it all: love, cheese, brandy old-fashioneds, ghosts, dogs, female friendship, a small mystery, & post-it notes aplenty.

Sabrina‘s an empathetic MC, struggling with anxiety & kind to a fault.👇🏻

monalyisha Ray, the love interest, is considerate & careful, he takes his time; he wears glasses & has disheveled locks & a penchant for cooking & bringing people together. He eschews Big City life for the quiet & peace of the Wisconsin River. He has hilarious taste in swimwear. 🦀 I loved Sabrina. I loved Ray. I loved Ray‘s blunt, gay, & fashionable sister, Lucy. I want to visit Wisconsin, & eat, & drink, & breathe fresh air. Simply put, I loved this story. (edited) 2w

I lost steam on this one LAST SPRING but picked it up today and I‘m not sure why I stopped reading it in the first place. Also please note the Christmas tree that I refuse to take down. I like the sparkle.

KathyWheeler We have never taken our Christmas tree down until January 6. I liked this book a lot. 4w
Reagan @DivineDiana @KathyWheeler it‘s so early but I know so many people who have taken their trees down already! 3w
KathyWheeler @Reagan Me too! I know people who take them down the day after Christmas! I also know people who keep them up even longer and convert them into Mardi Gras trees. 😄 3w
