If you need a story that will pull at your heart strings, wrap you in a fuzzy blanket on a cold winter night and bring you hot tea, then go immediately to your local bookstore, or click the link at the end to grab a copy of St. Francis Society For Wayward Pets.
Maeve gets let go from her job as a sports writer due to the company going belly up, then her jerk of a baseball player boyfriend cheats on her. In public. Men! Not only is that a cluster of a combo, Maeve gets notified her birth mother has died and she’s invited to the funeral.
Would you go to a funeral for a woman who didn’t show an ounce of interest in keeping in contact? Maeve is shocked she’s invited with all things considered. She loves her adoptive parents and adoptive brother, Eli. Why rock the boat by going?
Being kind and sensible Maeve caves and goes. The town where her bio mom lives is like a step back in time to Mayberry. What would it have been like for her to have grown up here instead of big Seattle?
Maybe Maeve will get to learn about her birth mother. Why did she not want to get to know Maeve? Why would she be invited to the funeral if her mom gave her away? So many unanswered questions and a small town taking in Maeve. It’s hard when you look just like your dead birth mother.
I received my complimentary copy of St. Francis Society For Wayward Pets by Annie England Noblin from William Morrow, care of TLC Book Tours. The views are mine and of my own choice. To grab a gorgeous copy support HarperCollins and check out more about the author.
