Description
One woman's journey home gets derailed by her soon-to-be ex-mother-in-law in a novel filled with humor, small-town charm, rekindled love, and the resilient ties of family.Cast aside by her cheating husband, Katelyn Chandler is ready to pack it all in and drive home to Little Springs, Texas. She wants a chance to regroup, reconnect with her mother, and get back to her art. But Shirley Pratt—master manipulator, elitist snob, and Katelyn's terror of a live-in monster-in-law—has other ideas. Shirley insists on joining Katelyn's trip after her son tries to pack her off to a retirement community. Katelyn has no choice but to play peacekeeper between the ornery old woman and the proud matrons of Little Springs. Yet the small town seems to be changing Shirley. And as Katelyn weighs the wisdom of picking up where she left off with Jackson Mendoza, the town bad boy and her high school sweetheart, she must find a way to believe in the strength of her dreams.

        September 1, 2017

        Katelyn has been taking care of her widowed mother-in-law, Shirley, for the past three years. Shirley has a habit of using her daughter-in-law as a punching bag, and Katelyn has become a pro at taking the abuse. When Katelyn's always-traveling-for-work husband asks for a divorce, it looks like Shirley won't be Katelyn's problem anymore, but the reality is far more nuanced. With her kids away for the summer and ready to start college in the fall, Katelyn is seemingly free to do what she wants for the first time in a long time. So she decides to visit her mother and the small town in Texas where she grew up and couldn't wait to get away from. Alas, her heart is too big to leave Shirley behind, so a road trip ensues and a fish-out-of-water story begins as high-society Shirley adjusts to small-town life. As Shirley acclimates, Katelyn starts to realize how much she gave up in her search for a better life. VERDICT With engaging characters and a fast-moving plot, this latest from Thomas ("Cash Brothers" series; The Promise of Forgiveness) will please fans of women's fiction with family drama and midlife transformation.--Karen Core, Detroit P.L.
