118. "Good Grief" ~ Lolly Winston

Sophie Stanton is widowed while in her 30s. This novel follows the year after her husband's death.

Sound familiar? Indeed. I thought it would be too similar to P.S. I Love You, which I reviewed in September. Men die of cancer, women nurse them, then let them go. Widows move on with their lives. Et cetera.

This is the good book. This is the realistic book, or at least the believable book. And it is the best written book. Perfect blend of tension and release with a dash of scintillating details.

3.4 out of 5.0 White Ladies.
