Title: Dear Life
Author: Meghan Quinn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
POV: First Person – Multiple
Four different lives at the end if their roads were looking for a change of course. Some by choice and some by force, they joined the Dear Life program to embark on a journey to rediscover life. But changes could only happen from within and they had to learn to accept their shortcomings in order to move on.
I’ve read and enjoyed several of Meghan Quinn’s hilarious romantic comedy books. When I found outabout this book, I was intrigued to see how the author would tackle the subject. I’m glad I enjoyed it as much as her lighter works.
You can see it in his eyes; they are pleading for help, begging for the pain to stop.
The four characters of Hollyn, Jace Barnes, Daisy Beauregard and Carter Crawford were totally different from each other yet brought together by their shared need to change their lives. And I like how their lives were connected one way or another.
A change needs to happen, because right now, the person I see in my reflection is still stuck in the past, and I want her to move into the future.
Among them there were the optimist, the pessimist, the bitch and the sweetheart. It was interesting seeing how each of them dealt with their personal issues and each others. They all inadvertently hurt and heal one another.
My favorite is definitely Carter. He just spoke to me from the beginning and I love his letters haha!
“Life isn’t some walk in the park where you can make wishes on dandelions. Life is work. Life is a journey of triumphs and sorrows. Of successes and failures. Of learning experiences and growing opportunities. You can’t sit back and expect different results when you’re not doing anything to change.”
Dear Life is an inspirational tale of four individuals learning to get out of the deep end and make the most of what life offered. It would appeal to readers looking for raw, real and relatable story with bits of humor in between.
