The only thing that confuse and frustrate you more than family was…former family.
Family centered around an inn, a famous mother whose face is known for news, and her children. Each facing a crisis of a different kind. A son that has come home from prison to a wife that has coped by becoming addicted to drugs. A son that is missing in the Middle East, a daughter that for so long has made her life complicated by not knowing her own needs. This family comes together for the holidays amidst in their own storms of life and the storm of the century.
This is one of those reads that can be an escapism with out any depth. There was so many characters that it was difficult for me to connect. As a disclaimer, this is the only book I have read of the series. Is my curiosity peaked? Yes. It was a clean read that spoke to the storms of life.
A Special Thank You to Little, Brown & Company and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
