"The hum of well-wishers' voices swirled around Claire James as she stood numbly in front of the brick fireplace in her mother's cramped Los Angeles apartment." - Delivered with Love by Sherry Kyle
My thoughts: O.K. so yeah it starts sad. But sometimes you need that and something about her inner voice sucked me in. Which has me ready to do a cartwheel (if I knew how) because my latest reading slump has been brutal. Hooray for the book the broke the slump!
Update: Turns out Lydia at The Overweight Bookshelf was right. This story is too perfect. Things just magically appear when she needs them resulting in a total lack of depth.
That has me back on the slump-killer search. Wish me luck! Toodles!
