ARC review: The Glass Wives by Amy Sue Nathan
Book Summary(via Goodreads):
When a tragic car accident ends the life of Richard Glass, it also upends the lives of Evie and Nicole, and their children. There’s no love lost between the widow and the ex. In fact, Evie sees a silver lining in all this heartache—the chance to rid herself of Nicole once and for all. But Evie wasn’t counting on her children’s bond with their baby half-brother, and she wasn’t counting on Nicole’s desperate need to hang on to the threads of family, no matter how frayed. Strapped for cash, Evie cautiously agrees to share living expenses—and her home—with Nicole and the baby. But when Evie suspects that Nicole is determined to rearrange more than her kitchen, Evie must decide who she can trust. More than that, she must ask: what makes a family?
This insomniac's opinion:
The description of this novel screamed chick-lit to me, and that is indeed what it is. Some people are turned off by the very idea of reading chick-lit, but I love a book that I don't have to think too much about sometimes. This book was very well written and easy to read. I loved the characters, especially Evie and her twins, immediately. I look forward to reading more novels from this new author!
Worth staying up all night to read?
