***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Against all odds, cancer survivor Lang Ellis is celebrating the one-year anniversary of her “death sentence” when her beloved husband drops dead on the tennis court.
Devoted to him, she reels from the loss, focusing on her precious granddaughter but struggling with her bossy only child, Teddy, and his aloof girlfriend, Sarah.
With her historical family estate in jeopardy, Lang realizes her husband wasn’t as perfect as she thought.
The secret he carried to his grave can ruin her life.
If she lets it.
I liked the idea of the story but I didn’t like a lot of the characters which is why I rated it low. Her son Teddy was so rude and a bit of a brat in my opinion because I understood that he wanted to help her understand her financial troubles, but never seemed to consider that she just seems overwhelmed with everything and he needed things done right away. He never seemed to be there for her when she needed him. Lang was just too wishy washy with everything. It seemed every decision was she didn’t want to try something, then she would, then she didn’t want to again. If it happened once or twice I’d understand but it seemed to be everything she was dealing with. There were a lot of moments where certain characters would act a certain way or say something off and it wouldn’t be explained right away. It wasn’t until 3/4th of the way through that most questions were finally answered. I would have just liked it to have spread out the answers better instead of having everything answered all at the end. It did have an interesting twist though that I did like. I was always curious about it and there were subtle hints relating to it but it’s still shocking. It’s still an interesting story, and I’m sure a lot of people would like it, but it just wasn’t a favorite for me.
