🌼Lots of Secrets
🌼But a Story full of Love, Humor and Hope
The story begins with Tara being released from a 18 month stint of prison on a drug charge. The only thing she wants to do is move on with her life. With no money she is forced to move back in with her brother and sister. But they have their own issues. Her brother is a single dad who does his best with a brain injury. Her sister is full of rules, but that’s just a facade to what she really seems to be hiding. These three are raveled up like a ball of yarn and once the string starts to unwind secrets and fears come out. This is a story of the bounds of love and loyalty.
“You know, what I liked most about that fairy tale is that you all saved each other.”
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Four strong stars. Look, I’m in my character driven era, so this one was right up my alley. The plot and mystery you might see from a mile away, but the depth and rich, vibrant characters is what stole the show. My only quibble is it’s only 269 pages. I would’ve loved about 50!more! There is a fun little easter egg with the restaurant Brennan’s too!
