“I walk through…

“I walk through a house once and know more about its occupants than a psychiatrist could after a year of sessions.” – Ann Leary, The Good House

Hildy, the main character of this story is a composed real estate agent, or so it seems from the outside.

Her children forced her into a 28-day alcohol rehab a bit over a year ago & Hildy is still bitter from this stint. Not believing she is an alcoholic, she resumes drinking with her new friend, Rebecca. Hildy helped find Rebecca her family’s dream home – however Rebecca’s life is not so much a dream. Her failing marriage only led her to the arms of Peter, a local therapist who is married as well.

Drama ensues after Rebecca’s fling fails & Hildy’s drinking turns into a downward spiral. Forgotten phone calls, hidden drinking around her children & even an accident that could change the town forever.

This book captures a small town vibe like no other. A good read for anyone – I give it a thumbs up!
