Thursdays in the Park
Book #84 Read in 2014
Thursdays in the Park by Hilary Boyd
Jeanie's husband of many years pulls away from her, emotionally and physically. She continues to go through the motions, trying to figure out where things went wrong. Her light is her granddaughter, Ellie. When babysitting her and taking her to the park, Jeanie meets Ray, who is there with his grandson, Dylan. The two connect and Jeanie begins to realize that she could have more in her life but she is torn with guilt about wrecking her family. Will she sacrifice her own happiness to keep her dysfunctional family intact?
I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters were ones you cared for...even though they were flawed. The writing style flowed well and made this a quick read. I would recommend this for fans of chick lit and "hen" lit since the main character is turning 60.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
