A Little Bit of Grace
Summary: A heartfelt story about family, forgiveness, and starting over when the happy ending ends, and handling it all with a little bit of grace.
Family is everything–Grace Adams McHale’s mom must have said it to her a thousand times before she died. Before Grace’s dad ran off with an aspiring actress half his age. Before only-child Grace found out she was unable to have children of her own. Before Brian–her childhood best friend, business partner, and finally her husband–dropped a “bombshell” on her in the form of her stunning new replacement.
Which means Grace now has…nothing.
Until she receives a letter from a woman claiming to be a relative Grace never knew she had, sending her on a journey from the childhood home she had to move back into, to a Florida island to meet a total stranger who embraces her as family. There, Grace starts to uncover answers about the eccentric woman her family never mentioned: an octogenarian who is the keeper of a secret held for more than fifty years.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Having enjoyed Phoebe’s earlier books- The Break-Up Doctor series- when a Berkley publicist approached me about reviewing this book- it was a no brainer. I was not sure exactly what to expect since this was a new book with no ties to her previous series- but I loved it.
I thought Grace was a wonderful character. Someone who was so deserving of all the light and love in the world and I loved watching her go from playing it safe to realizing that she deserved to take up some space in this world!
What I Liked:
The cover. It so spoke to me. The colors, the scene- it was music to my ears.
Millie. Oh she was a character and I loved her so much. There was much depth to her and her story and I wish I had a Millie in my corner.
How Phoebe ended the book. Life does not get tied up into a neat little bow and this book, while a satisfying ending, is not all neatly tied up. I would love to return to these characters at a future date and see where their story goes next!
Bottom line: Do you want a story that will give you good feelings and make you think about things some? Then, you gotta check out A Little Bit of Grace!
