Publisher's Summary

Broke and lonely, Kim is about to make the worst decision ever.

Divorced and struggling, middle-aged Kim is hanging on by her fingernails. When her elderly mother invites her to move home to Florida, to the lush island of her childhood, Kim is tempted. She could spend time with Mom, start her dream business, and craft the perfect new life.

On the other hand, Mom has a masters in manipulation, and there’s a reason Kim fled to California in her youth. But, she’s too mature and experienced now to fall into the same family drama.

Telling herself it’ll all work out, Kim loads a rental trailer with her last few belongings and heads for Estero Island, hoping she isn't making a huge mistake.

Great story

I enjoyed this book for the most part, kept me intrigued but I will say in the beginning I was not to fond of the narrator, her voice seemed flat and had a hard time getting into it but because I did enjoy the story I kept listening. By the last 1/3 of the book the narrator got better and I actually enjoyed it.

I agree with the other reviewer!

I am sure many of us can see parts of ourselves in this book. Sometimes too close for comfort. A well written story.

The narration was great. Jenny Myers did a grat job.

I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I feel seen...

I wonder how many adult kids have read this book and thought, this is my story!? I related to so much from start to finish (without the romance, darn it!) Kim felt the pull of her 'I can fix it' gene and moved across the country to help her elderly, ailing mother only to find out it was worse than expected.
I listened to Jenny Myers as she narrated this book and, just wow! She has perfect voice for this book. She made me believe every character.
I highly recommend this book!
