On his best days, he thinks he can.
She was dressed in hot-pink capri pants, an aqua T-shirt and bright yellow sneakers with hot-pink laces. The baby stared at her with big, liquid eyes and she dropped a kiss onto his forehead, too.
Sunlight streamed through floor-to-ceiling windows that opened onto a deck. The adjacent open-plan living room was also flooded with light, the brightness accentuating the brilliant jewel tones of the furnishings. Like Billie herself, this was a house full of color and life and vibrancy.
An architect, Michael often brought work home with him, something Angie knew Billie sometimes resented. Sorry about that. She was a cheeky little thing, funny and smart as a whip. Billie started dancing, holding Charlie out from her body and shaking her backside as only she could. Billie simply grinned and kept dancing. Eva giggled, thrilled to be part of the conspiracy to flush out her hardworking father. A minute later, a tall, broad-shouldered figure appeared in the doorway. His feet were bare, his jeans old and faded, his white T-shirt well washed.
He crossed his arms over his chest, the expression in his gray-green eyes equal parts amused and frustrated. Billie had married Michael and had two beautiful children.
She was a bit of a free spirit, a celebrator of birthdays, a lover of trying new hobbies even though nothing ever stuck. Then tragically, Billie loses her life on what should have been her thirty-second birthday.
Angie is deep in her grief, 10 months passing without the pain easing. She realises, on a routine visit to Michael and the kids that Michael is not coping with the loss of his wife and that things in their household have descended into a bit of chaos. Angie is desperate to help, she knows that Billie would hate to see Michael and her children this way and she does her best to step in, motivate Michael to get back to work and get out of the house and begins also watching the children for him when she can in order to help with stability in their lives.
Extricating herself from this situation would probably be for the best but she cares too much for the children, who need her and also too much for Michael himself.
Even though this can go no where, she cannot walk away. Michael and Angie are both caught in a difficult place….
I highly enjoyed both of those novels, especially the latter and when I saw this one on NetGalley, I had to grab it. I think Mayberry successfully delivers in many aspects here — the establishment of a genuine, lovely friendship between Billie and Angie, despite the fact that Billie is not a presence in this book very long before her death.
The attraction that develops between them is slow enough so not to alarm but at times I still found it a bit difficult to negotiate. However for me personally, it was a pairing I found difficult to get behind. Posted in Uncategorized. Congratulations and thanks for participating in the challenge. Thanks Elizabeth! A big thanks to you as well for hosting something that has really grown into a huge commitment. I know this review I linked up this morning was not far off being , a huge achievement for everyone taking part and yourself as organiser I think.
I enjoyed both of her other titles a lot more, but the writing in this one is lovely.
