First Comes Love, by Emily Giffin (audio)

Family, torn apart by death, trying to cling together while all the resentments, regrets, and grief stuff every corner of every interaction.

This is one of those books that I have a hard time evaluating. On the one hand, the audiobook was engaging, the writing was excellent, the story interesting. On the other, I never particularly grew to like any of the characters, and there was no overall spark that will keep this book in my mind as years pass. So maybe I’ll just say that this was a good book, but I didn’t personally connect with it, though I can imagine other people doing so easily (especially if they’ve had any experiences similar to those in the book).
