No spoilers, just finished this book. I loved the setting and the characters. It was a book that I didn’t want to put down. I am following this author. I’ve found a new favorite. Read this book! You won’t be disappointed!

This started out feeling like a psychological thriller, but then it turned into a rather typical story about abuse.

I found this to be a well-written and deeply touching story about finding your roots and your identity, with the help of loved ones both here and gone. Loved the setting and supporting characters, especially Savannah (who will tug at your heartstrings). This book had just the right mix of magic and reality for me, and was a great companion during a recent illness. There was enough intrigue to keep me hooked, and enough romance to make this just a really enjoyable read.

I stumbled across this while browsing the new fiction shelf of at the library, unaware of its popularity. That said, its hard not to reflect on another highly rated book, [b:We Are the Brennans|55169040|We Are the Brennans|Tracey Lange|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1628802754l/55169040._SY75_.jpg|82555352] due to both of them being melodramatic and dull. During the heyday of TV, these are referred to as Soap Operas.

We first meet Nicole, a young woman recently separated from Kent, a manipulative, slime ball lawyer. "Nickle" is viewed by him and her family as a kleptomaniac due several misdemeanor thefts that sent her to jail several times. However, she's unlike typical shoplifters since she doesn't lift items for profit. Instead, her targets are the sort that need to be relocated for one purpose or another and she feels its her duty to oblige.

With a prison record, her sister Roberta hires her to help clean houses and when working at one of the clients, Nickle is called by a ragged copy of Dantes Inferno and pockets it. When they travel to a new client, she deposits the book there without her sister's knowledge. When Andrea, a high strung affluent pharmacist discovers it, things become unhinged. We then learn Nicole 'relocated' $20K in cash from Kent and it 'found its way' to a woman in need while at the Goodwill store.

Angered about the missing money, Kent hires Hawk, a private investigator to keep tabs on Nicole. And that's when the story gets soapy. As the plot drags along, soap bubbles rise and soon the melodrama becomes overwhelming.

Put simply, this is about as predictable as they come with the minor exception of the relocation element. Characters are flat, plot tries to be unique, but fails due to predictable romance, drug overdoses and a ridiculous court scene I saw coming half way through.

I realize I may be in the minority since sappy romance stories fail to engage my tastes. But for those that enjoy them, this could be right up your alley! As with all art, we're each drawn to something different, and the Rolling Stones would call this 'brown shoes'.
