“Smartly written and nimbly plotted, the novel illustrates author Maggie Leffler’s grasp of family dynamics, along with a sharp sense of humor.”— Pittsburgh Tribune Review
“A delightful novel: warm, wry, smart and very funny.”—Irina Reyn, author of What Happened to Anna K.
“An excellent summer read.”—Publishers Weekly
“I really enjoyed this novel. I found the story to be heart warming. I loved how the characters and the situations came to life. The not knowing if there would be a happily ever after ending for not only Di but Alecia kept me quickly reading so I could find out. This is an excellent book for a lazy summer day to curl up with.”—Night Owl Romance
“This is a wonderful story of family: crazy relatives you find you can’t live without, stable relatives that go crazy, half-truths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings, and the delicate balance of trusting that your family will always be there, when maybe they won’t….I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the characters (or loved to hate their eccentricities, at least) and I loved their motivations and I loved their heart. Above that, I love their happy ending. Armchair Interviews says: A 5-star ‘love fest’ for this book and its storytelling author.”—Armchair Interviews
“Sarcasm that engages and intrigues is an art form that I wish all other authors could grasp and deliver as well as Ms. Leffler has. Don’t get me wrong, she’s wrapped the humor and comedy into a wonderful story about love, pain, faith, and a need for a place in this world. But the delivery of the lines is absolutely fabulous and transcends the normal, plethora of books that are out there, begging readers to weep for their characters….Bravo Ms. Leffler! I’ll look forward to the next one.”—Once Upon a Romance
