Review: Hello Sunshine by Laura Dave

Goodreads:  Sunshine Mackenzie has it all…until her secrets come to light.

Sunshine Mackenzie is living the dream—she’s a culinary star with millions of fans, a line of #1 bestselling cookbooks, and a devoted husband happy to support her every endeavor.

And then she gets hacked.

When Sunshine’s secrets are revealed, her fall from grace is catastrophic. She loses the husband, her show, the fans, and her apartment. She’s forced to return to the childhood home—and the estranged sister—she’s tried hard to forget. But what Sunshine does amid the ashes of her own destruction may well save her life.

Kritters Thoughts:  Sunshine Mackenzie has been an online personality that went viral and is about to make the move to traditional media with a food show on tv, but her personality has been built on a complete lie and it is all going to be exposed.  On the way to a birthday party, Sunshine's twitter is hacked and all the secrets are revealed and it send her life on a completely different path.  

I flipped and flopped on this book.  There were moments when I loved Sunshine's story and I was excited to see how she would recovery and redeem herself and then there were times where I didn't like her at all and she would do something that was completely unappealing and I sort of pulled for the person that outed her.  I felt as though Sunshine felt flat a lot and she didn't have depth and I was worried she wouldn't be able to learn from this life blunder.  

I like Laura Dave's work and while this may not be my favorite, I am still excited to get caught up on her backlist and anticipate what is to come.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
