Goodreads:  Are you suffering from a broken heart? Searching for the right medicine? Staring down the barrel of being single and not knowing where to start? Learn from Grace Callaghan! She’s done it all:

Wine is the answer. Some serving-size suggestions include: a glass the size of your head, a bathtub, an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Best served chilled, and with a straw.

Friends with benefits is always an option. Be prepared for side effects such as the guy saying ‘baby’, crying out his ex’s name and preferring to keep his socks on.

Going ‘out out’ helps banish the blues. It may involve breaking into replica ships from the fifteenth century, screaming ‘Aye-aye, Captain!’ and accidentally falling off the plank.

Karaoke makes everything better. Best enjoyed singing Enrique Iglesias, followed by an extra-large serving of fries.

Three years ago, when Grace’s heart was blown to smithereens, she made a promise to protect herself. But has she gone too far? Has she played it too safe? Should she take a leap into the unknown, messy business of the heart? Because maybe, just maybe, she could learn to love again…

Kritters Thoughts:  Grace has endured at a young age the most horrible tragedy, the loss of a spouse.  Her husband battled cancer and upon his death bed charged her to travel and gain life experiences and she gained that and so much more.  Now as a mom to two adopted sisters, Grace has put the pieces together of her life, but is still battling demons.  Interspersed with letters between Grace and her late husband, this book was hard to read at moments, but also heartwarming.

Grace was such a fun character to follow on a journey for the length of this book.  I loved how she was not perfect and was honest about how even three years later she was still dealing with the effects of grief while also doing her best for her daughters.

This is my first book I have read in the series and I didn't feel as though I was missing anything, but I am definitely lead to go back to the beginning and catch the other stories in this series that focus on each of her other sisters.  This was also my first Kristen Bailey book and I enjoyed this one so much that I will partake in her backlist and will look out for more from her.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
