GREAT Characters. I Smiled Throughout
4.5 out of 5 stars
This was another one of those books that really comes out of the gate and just says, “let’s all be mature about things.” I know it’s not rare, but it’s nice to read a story about two women who are both dealing with some things (in not great ways), and they can be adults and deal with their own issues (or figure out a way to communicate them to get some help). It’s just refreshing and helps me love the story even more.
Waters did a good job writing believable characters and were easy to root for. Lil and Riley were strong and wonderful women on their own, but the fireworks when they were together were hard to ignore.
The Best Time has been sitting on my phone for a while, but I’m sad because I didn’t help boost it earlier. But, I hope that with this, people give this enjoyable book a try, and honestly, I had a smile on my face the whole time. Even when I knew things wouldn’t go exactly as they thought. It was just one of those perfect books to get someone out of a funk.
I’m not someone to spoil, but I will say that the ending was really well done. I thought that the scene with the presentation and subsequent scenes after was perfectly executed and made this already good book even better.
I thought that Felicity Munroe did a great job with the performance. One of the characters was a bit more dramatic than the other (read the description and find the one who thinks they are dying), and Felicity did a perfect job voicing how I pictured it in my head. I love when a narrator can pull that off. It’s a rare and genuine skill.
What would you do if your past walked through your door?
Dumped and depressed, Lil Bradley is left running her dream bookshop without her dream woman. All that’s left of her fiancée is the half-finished coffee shop in the corner of the store.
And then Riley Winters reappears.
Riley is convinced that she’s dying. So she’s come back to Amberly, the home that she’s been avoiding for fifteen years. And when she walks into Lil’s store it’s like turning back the hands of time. Except it’s a clock that neither one of them really wanted to mess with.
There’s no way that they’re about to recapture their history together. If only because Kayden, Lil’s best friend and Riley’s big brother, would never forgive them. Anyway, Lil’s happy alone and Riley’s busy dying.
Until Riley’s diagnosis isn’t quite as fatal as she thought, and it turns out she came home for all the wrong reasons. But can she be persuaded to stay for all the right ones?
Sometimes all it takes is a reminder of what’s truly important to turn your life upside down . . .The Best Time by Sienna Waters
