Summary: Kate lost her husband in a tragic accident and spent the following year numb with grief. She stopped living a 'normal' life and even left the day-to-day care of her eccentric daughter Devin to her overbearing and appearance conscious mother-in-law. The day Kate and her daughter are scheduled to move in with her mother-in-law, Devin finds an old post card for Lost Lake, Georgia in an old family trunk. That post card inspires Kate to visit a resort from her childhood to look for healing in the place she spent her best last summer.
What I Liked:
- The book was fast paced and easy to read---perfect for picking up and putting down when I needed a break from working around the house.
- The cast of characters was interesting and very entertaining. Bulahdeen and Selma were entertaining and unique while Lissette's story was quite tragic.
- The setting captivated my imagination. It was very easy for me to put myself at Lost Lake and imagine what I would do if I was there.
- Upon further reflection, I'd love to read a book based on Selma's life.
- The story was a little lighter than I anticipated. I felt the author could have delved more deeply into the characters. They were all so interesting that I wish she has spent more time on their back stories and what brought them all to Lost Lake.
- I didn't care for Kate's love interest. He had very little personality and I found the basis of their attraction odd.
