I should admit upfront I’m not a glass is “half-full” kind of girl and this book is definitely for those “half-full” type of people. So that should explain the two-star rating from me. This book is just too much good stuff and even the drama is solved before the end of the chapter – totally not realistic. I know I know fiction doesn’t have to be realistic and like I said this book is for someone else.
This book is a story of a girl’s life and the influence the folks around her have on her but when the synopsis says 25-year-old Jezebel Thibodeaux you would expect her to be 25 years old before the last two/three chapters in the book. This book is slow going and I mean slow. There is a whole chapter about the new employee at the cakery but the story spends less than a 1/3 of a chapter on a cancer reveal. I just didn’t get the authors point. I also didn’t like the whole her life isn’t complete until she finds her right-man. I guess the feminist in me just thinks there is more to a woman than finding her right-man by age 25.
Another deterrent to the story is the narrator, Peggy Richardson. She does a fabulous job with the accent but every character sounds exactly the same and there are several times when I have no idea who is speaking because they all have the same accent and inflection on words.
