Golden Girl was this month’s read for my book club. The story revolves around best selling author Vivian Howe who is killed by a hit and run driver. I’m not giving anything away because this happens right at the beginning. But Vivi goes to what I would say is a way-station on the way to heaven. Her afterlife guide allows Vivi to watch over her family for the summer. Her guide also gives Vivi three “nudges” that she can use to influence a person or an outcome on earth. 

So Vivi watches how her three children, ex husband, and her best friend deal with their grief at losing her so suddenly. Vivi also looks back at her life and recalls her teenage years growing up in a small town in Ohio- especially a long buried secret regarding her high school boyfriend. It’s a secret that might be revealed in her soon to be published novel. And since this is an Elin Hilderbrand novel, it’s also a love letter to Nantucket. 

I thought this was an entertaining family drama-rama with a little side dish of who killed Vivi. It’s a perfect summertime read for the beach or by the pool. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

QOTD: what are you reading this week? 

I’m reading the NetGalley ARC of Run Time by Catherine Ryan Howard.
