Publisher's Summary

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

More like a pity party for the ultra pessimist

Spoiler Alert. I got about half way into the book and just couldn't proceed any further. The book is literally set around one event, a flood, and stays focused on the effect the flood has on the town, which wasnt even much. The main character is extremely dramatic, super pessimistic, negative and just plain pathetic. I literally spent half this book listening to her complain about how she lost her things, which she expressed she really didn't even care about in the first place. All the while, all this could have been avoided if she had not been neglectful in renewing her flood insurance. Really? Who lives in a basement flat near a river and chooses to delay getting flood insurance. Honestly it makes it extremely hard to feel sorry for her. I mean yeah she had a tough life but come on... The relationship between the Mayor and the main character doesnt make any sense what so ever. Why would a strong successfull woman, who runs business being a life coach, want anything to do with a middle aged woman who has commitment issues, cant do something as important as get flood insurance when she lives on an island, and cant have a conversation without shoving an unessecary pessimistic comment in. I think the author expects us to suspend reality all the way towards the dysfunctionally unrealistic. I won't be finishing this book. Money wasted.
