The book starts with Cat in her kitchen and finding an old bottle of vodka. Cat is a recovering alcoholic that had her marriage ruined by alcohol. The book is quickly switched from 2014 to flashbacks. There's a flashback from 1998 and then one in the 60's with her mother's viewpoint, that reveals a big secret. The books moves back to 1998 to show what happens in the summer of 1998 that changes Cat's live forever. She meets another recovering alcoholic that she marries and then has a daughter with. The story jumps forward to 2014 to resolve the hurt that Cat caused that fateful summer. Cat is moving through her 12 steps and needs to make amends with the people she hurt. She also wants to try and move on from being in love with the man who is her ex-husband. Will she succeed? You'll have to read the book to find out.
Jane's recent release been really up and down for me. I loved "Tempting Fate" but didn't love "Saving Grace". Overall, I really liked this book. The story was a little predictable and I could see how it was going to end but I still enjoyed reading the story. Jane's writing always keeps me interested in her books. She has a great way of keeping me interested in the story and I was able to finish this book in just two days. Cat was a great character. She was very flawed but it's nice to read about a character that is not perfect all the time but you still want to root for. The descriptions of Nantucket were fun to read. I've never been there but this book makes me want to book a trip to see Nantucket for myself.
I think any fan of Jane Green's will like this book. It's not as great as her early novels but it's still really good. The book does deal with some heavier topics but I do think this will make a great beach read. Highly recommended!
Overall, great read.
