Bea's Thoughts: SPOILER ALERT
Okay, a couple of housekeeping things first.
Second, the spoiler alert. STOP NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!
The book talks about cancer, specifically breast cancer. It's pretty much the driving plot point. So if cancer is a trigger for you, don't read the novella and stop reading this review.
Unfortunately, the original book blurb didn't indicate that cancer was part of the story and so I eagerly requested the book, only to fall apart when I started reading it. Myself and few others mentioned this to Jessica and she changed the blurb so that potential readers will know. Thank you Jessica for doing that; it's much appreciated.
I have to say up front that the cancer theme affected my experience of the book and my rating. If it had been any other medical condition, I'd give the book 4 or 5 stars. But I can't get past the cancer so I gave it 3 stars on goodreads. That may not be fair but it's all I could do.
I received a digital ARC from the author for review.
