I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Kristen Bailey is a mother-of-four, rum-drinker, binge-watcher, receipt hoarder, enthusiastic but terrible cook. Kristen also writes. She used to write short fiction before her first two novels were published in 2016. In 2019, she was long-listed in the Comedy Women in Print Prize and had since joined the Bookouture family. HAS ANYONE SEEN MY SEX LIFE? CAN I GIVE MY HUSBAND BACK? and DID MY LOVE LIFE SHRINK IN THE WASH? Follow the Callaghan sisters and are a fresh take on modern life, love, and family. Apparently, they’re funny, but her husband likes to tell her different. She lives in Hampshire, UK. She also is a whizz at world capitals and thinks pineapple belongs on pizza. Don’t fight her on this.
“We will need glitter, all the goddamn glitter.”
Lucy is fierce- the baby of her family, confident, intelligent, she isn’t afraid to do or say what she likes. She’s devoted to her four older sisters, parents, and nieces and nephews. When Lucy is in a terrible accident, she wakes up thinking she is 17 again. Now, her sisters are determined to do whatever they can to help Lucy find herself again, no matter the cost.
This was such a cute story. I loved the bond the sisters had, and I loved the unity and strength each character possessed.
Lucy is a wild card. She is fierce, bold, outgoing, outspoken, and comfortable with who she is. She sees the best in every situation, and she isn’t afraid to use her voice.
The sisters were all so great. I loved how they each represented something within their dynamic, and I loved the banter between them.
This was an emotional story, filled with heartwarming moments, funny bits, and the overwhelming truth that sisterhood is a bond that can’t be broken.
This is a must-read! Everyone should be a little bit like Lucy.
