Goodreads: Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago when Gail’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight. Now, “The Gail Gideon Show” is beloved by millions of single women who tune-in for her advice on the power of self-reinvention. But fame comes at a price. After all, what does a woman who has staked her career on being single do when she finds herself falling in love? And is the person who is harassing her in increasingly troubling ways a misguided fan or a true danger to Gail and her daughter, Nic?
Fourteen-year-old Nic has always felt that she pales in comparison to her vibrant, outgoing mother. Plagued by a fear of social situations, she is most comfortable at the stable where she spends her afternoons. But when a riding accident lands Nic in the hospital, she awakens from her coma changed. Suddenly, she has no fear at all and her disconcerting behavior lands her in one risky situation after another. And no one, least of all her mother, can guess what she will do next…
Kritters Thoughts: Mother daughter have been doing life and its been going quite fine until an accident happens and it sends their life into a tailspin! Gail Gideon has had a successful radio show and a driver to help her keep her single mom life moving forward. Nic is entering high school and is frightened by it all, the only place she can find comfort is at the horse stables where she can feel completely in control.
What a fantastic mother daughter story. In the midst of a crazy time in my life, this book was just the right thing I needed. It had heart and a great story, but just read so easy. It was easy to dip into this book read a few chapters and then come back to it. The chapters switched back and forth between focusing on the mom and then the daughter. I loved both of their stories absolutely equally which made the reading even more enjoyable.
If you love a simple story then this is just the one for you. I think this would be the perfect remedy for a busy life or a book hangover!
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
