Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is The Way It Should Be by Christina Suzann Nelson. I just finished reading this one yesterday and will be sharing my full review soon, but for now just know that I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it!

About the Book:

After years of estrangement, the lives of Zara Mahoney and her twin sister, Eve, are suddenly and completely intertwined again. Eve’s troubled lifestyle causes the state to take custody of her two children and contact Zara and her husband, asking them to consider foster care. Newlywed Zara thought she’d finally been given a fresh start and feels wholly unprepared to care for a niece and nephew whose existence she wasn’t even aware of.

Meanwhile, Eve may have a real chance to start over this time with the help of Tiff Bradley, who’s dedicated to helping women everyone else has given up on after facing a heartbreaking tragedy in her own family.

  1. My first lines are by Jenny Knipfer and Under the Weeping Willows:
    Enid June 1983
    I rub my hand over my mother’s words. My throat clenches, and I hiccup, forcing back a sob. A tear lands on the lined page of the diary with a splat.
    Happy reading!
