I have reviewed the following books of the series on this blog, do check them out to be acquainted with some of the people I am about to mention.
As mentioned in the earlier posts, I am finally working my way through some of my backlist titles in between other commitments. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this series.
I may not remember much when it comes to the narration in the previous ones, but I think this might have been the best. We have Katie as our lead protagonist in this installment, and she has had a hard childhood. It has molded her into a very introverted person prone to speculation of her own self-worth. She is a little better with the healing comforts of the Comfort Food Cafe but this story is when she finally breaks out of her shell. It does not happen until the end of the tale, but the inevitable is still fun to watch unfold. The people are unique even though the end result of people helping each other to rise above their old selves may not exactly be. Saul, Katie’s son provided the lighter laughs with his childish glee and those typical mispronunciations of basic words. Overall, is better to go into this story with prior knowledge of all the members of this assorted strange family but even without it, you can enjoy Katie’s story for what it is.
I must mention again that the writing and conversations are well done and are a treat to read.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience. The book has since been published and is available.
