Wow, this book has so many layers, with several interwoven plot lines, and a diverse cast of characters. Overall, it is a delightful and heartwarming debut novel that captures the essence of messy family dynamics with humor and authentic emotion. The Williams family navigates the unexpected twists and turns that follow the sudden death of their beloved patriarch, Gerry. Shook weaves a captivating narrative as the cousins grapple with grief and face their own personal challenges. I really enjoyed the clever and original approach to telling this story; it kept me engaged throughout. This story really is the perfect blend of wit, sincerity, and moments of profound insight, detailing the family bonds and the healing power of love.
