An enjoyable last blast of summer
Surprisingly, this is only the 3rd book by Elin Hilderbrand that I've read. I really do enjoy her books! Her style of writing is easy to get lost in. There are a variety of characters in this one. Like, a lot of characters. 😬 Lots going on! They all intertwine at the hotel, where most of them work at. I liked the character of Grace, the ghost. That was a unique twist.⭐⭐⭐⭐
An emotional , thought-provoking novel that still has a “beach read” feel to it. Viví is the cornerstone of her family so when she dies from a hit and run accident it turns the Howe family upside down. Her “viewing window” allows her three nudges to use to help set her family back on track. Her kids, Carson is larger than life and so is her pain, Leo is confused and scared and Willa remains resilient as the oldest sibling.
This was a well told, good mystery. I enjoyed going from present to past, and the detectives interviews with each character to learn what happened from different perspectives. Somewhat stereotypical characters in terms of social class with values and norms that reflect the stereotype. First time reader of this author, would read more of her books.
Make a great day everyone. 🙂
Summer is not quite over but I think my summer reading is. Here‘s a recap of my summery titles. Not as many as usual. Heavy on the Hilderbrand! Only two with #SummerintheTitle. Several summer books going back on the shelf until next year. #summerreading. Time to move on to some dark academia!
