Chuck’s Tavern & Grill is a popular eating and drinking spot in James Bay, and it’s been run for years by Chuck Malinski and his grown daughter Katy. Katy’s mom died many years ago, so it’s been father and daughter arm-and-arm against the world. Katy’s shown herself to be capable enough that her father’s made her a partner in the business. All is good in the world, until one day a mysterious stranger shows up, claiming to be Chuck’s daughter.
Is Mai really who she claims to be? Chuck accepts her from the moment they meet, while Katy’s a skeptic of this woman claiming a share of her father’s time and affection. The story unfolds in chapters that alternate between Katy and Chuck’s points of view, which build steadily toward a dramatic conclusion.
Paterka has a great gift for creating human characters of real dimension and depth. They’re flawed, as we all are, but there’s enough goodness in them that you find yourself rooting for them every step of their journey.
Insta Love for me!!! I jumped at the chance to read and review this book from one of my favorite authors! How could I resist, it is set in St. JamBay and in a Diner! Katy has found out that her father has a secret daughter from his past that has now entered their lives. Mai, the long lost daughter is not what she seems and Katy has her doubts about what Mai is really after, meanwhile her father is completely taken in by Mai. I felt that this was due to guilt from not knowing of Mai's existence. I was so exasperated at times by Chuck, Katy's father, I found myself saying out loud to him come on Chuck be cautious and listen to Katy! Katy is also dealing with a heavy burden of guilt concerning her mother's death. This book really deals with family drama and forgiveness. The dynamic between Father and daughter in this book is so well written. Mai , I really grew to detest her, has her own drama and story but the dynamics between Katy and Mai are very interesting and I sensed a bit of a bond between them.
What a drama filled and shocker of an ending! I am definitely hoping for a sequel to this book!
